Hi, this is Rou Hun

Impossible for people to pronounce, Rou Hun is a Dutch-born, Chinese-rooted front-end developer. I love to create beautiful experiences and toy around with new technologies on the web and elsewhere.

In the past I've created sites for Dutch clients such as Takeaway.com, VVV Cadeaubonnen and Automotive (Volkswagen, Seat, Skoda). I would love to work with other exciting (international) brands.

Front-end covers a very wide spectrum these days. I often notice both non-technical and technical people often misunderstand what I do at first. Give me a chance to explain what I love to do:

What I love to help you with:

  • Front-end development and design. I have a lot of experience working together with (ux) designers and back-end developers and create performant, semantically correct, responsive webpages.
  • Add animation and interaction to designs. Creating motion and add rich(er) experiences.
  • I can consult on user interface and user experience challenges.
  • I can consult on growing your site or start up projects.

What I can't help you with:

  • I don't create back-end systems. I know the basics, but honestly, someone else can do this faster and better.
  • I don't create wireframes, mockups or design deliverables.
  • I do have friends that can help out with such projects.

What I have in mind for the future:

  • I would love to teach.
  • Anything WebGL and VR.
  • Always open to hear about collaborations on cool stuff! Hit me up!

Most recently I've worked on:

  • flowen.nl
