Three Hats director, Jane Harris, creates and curates simple, elegant and clear websites for award-winning New Zealand authors, literary journals, individual books, writer residencies, publishers, architects, a photographer and an engineering mate who builds lights out of found objects.
Jane is also a freelance Moneypenny, proofreader, image researcher and editor, transcriber and digital content manager for several New Zealand companies. She navigates the unfolding territory of digitising content with curiosity and ease.
She has thirty years of book selling under her belt; from well-known chain stores, to Unity Books Wellington, to web-based ecommerce bookshops, to publishers. She crossed over to the publishing side in 2009, where she has gained experience in copy-editing, production and marketing of New Zealand books for Phantom House Books and Te Papa Press. Within the last ten years, she has also gained wide experience in online content and digital asset management.
All of these perspectives, and her ability to create websites, place her in a handy position of being able to understand the requirements and idiosyncrasies of websites in the publishing arena. Her wide interests and adaptability also enable her to work within other business realms. Ask her about importing the ex-military jet…
Jane is also an able Geek/Non-geek Liaison Officer ™ translating the technical to non-technical people and vice versa.
She finds writing about herself in the third person most odd.
