Freelance Front End Developer

Recent projects

Adrian Davies : Winning Moves

We have used Bob Spencer on many projects over the years, ranging from straightforward HTML coding to complex Flash animation. What is unique about Bob is his ability to develop his skills to new challenges; a good example being the development of a new software tool we wanted to prototype. Bob was able to use his Adobe knowledge to rapidly prototype a piece of software; reducing the lead time from months to weeks. It is certainly a technique we will use again.

Alun Davies : Service Reality

Bob did a great job of designing a set of WordPress templates for a new website. We’ve also used him a couple of times since for some bug fixing and he’s been very responsive and easy to work with.

Nick Wright : Studio North

A regular freelancer at Studio North, Bob’s excellent technical ability and broad web development knowledge makes him an extremely valuable extension to our team. A conscientious worker who is able to overcome any technical challenge we put in front of him.

Bruce Salt : Salt’s Catering

Bob does nearly all our design and website work. www.saltscatering.co.uk hopefully speaks for itself. Always gets work done quicker than I ask and most importantly for a small business, very good value.

Highly recommended.

James Spencer : Managing Director at Portland Fuel

Bob has worked with us on numerous key projects and his work is always absolutely top notch. He is professional, creative and a perfectionist (without being a pain!). He is no relation, but he also has a fantastic surname.

Lisa Lilley : Uttoxeter Dental Practice

I would like to thank Bob for creating an amazing website for our company. Bob was recommend to us for his web designing and I must say he hasn’t failed me. Anything I asked for he made possible and nothing was too much bother. The website now reflects our thriving new dental practice and I couldn’t be happier with the end result.

It was a pleasure to work with Bob on this design he made it very easy and I would recommend him to anyone wishing to set up a new web page.

Caroline Hirst : Aspiral Development Ltd

I would like to thank Bob for creating a wonderful website for me. I went to Bob with a vision for my website. This vision was in the form of a large sheet of paper with lots of blue spirals, some furn and a sunflower drawn on it. From this simple drawing Bob was able to translate my vision into a website which far exceeded my expectations. He was able to guide me through each step of the way with non technical language which I understood and I’m absolutely delighted with the end result. I would thoroughly recommend Bob to anyone with or without a vision for their website.

Matthew Broadbent : Broadbent Surveyors

Bob has provided us with a wide range front end web and design services over the last 5 years. These services range from designing stationery through to re-vamping our current website. Last year, we instructed Bob to specifically optimise our site for mobiles and tablets. He turned this work around within a few days and it was carried out to his usual high standards. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

Richard Hyde : Photolink

I worked with Bob during my time at Photolink Creative Group and cannot commend him highly enough. As far as front end developers go, in my opinion, they don’t come any better than Bob. His attention to detail is meticulous and he always ensures that the build is as close to the design as physically possible. On top of this, his builds are always thoroughly cross-browser tested and always adhere to W3C CSS validation.

His skills stretch well beyond XHTML and CSS and he is also an expert in Flash and ActionScript too, which was fantastic for me as a flash designer working along side him. He’s also a thoroughly nice chap to boot, and an absolute pleasure to work with.

Anne-Marie Johnson : Creative Exchange

The logo that Bob produced for my business, Creative Exchange, is contemporary, vibrant and upbeat. Bob has a natural talent for design and he combines this with a positive professional approach.

His creative ideas began flowing a few minutes into our initial conversation. He then went on to turn the work around in just two days, consulting me at various points. I am delighted with both the end result and of the overall service provided.
