Recent projects

Claudia Russell : Handsfree US

It is a pleasure to have the opportunity to work with Bob. He is a creative professional who brings constant ideas that help move us to the next level. His confidence and ability to think outside of the box to enhance and deliver the best ideas/solutions are second to none. He is not just a Partner, he is an extension of our business. I look forward to working with Bob for years to come.

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.

Stuart Owens : Red Hot World Buffet

I’ve worked with Bob for more years than I care to remember! Although Bob’s job title may quite rightly recognise him as a specialist front end developer, this is perhaps limiting to the skill set that he can actually offer. In his own right Bob is an accomplished creative, also with a more than capable knowledge of programming and platform integration. This combined with strong communication and project management skills makes him one of the rare breed of true all-rounders that I would highly recommend to any future employer.

Matthew Roberts : Holmfirth Town Juniors FC

Knowing Bob as one of our “football Dads”, whose son plays for our Community Football Club Holmfirth Town Junior FC, we asked Bob if, using his expertise, he would design a new website for the Club.

What we now have is a brilliant bespoke, real time, simple to use website which does a fantastic job of showcasing our club both internally, to our parents and children, as well as externally to potential new players wanting to see what our great club is all about.

Bob has an “anything is possible“ and “nothing is too much to ask” demeanor which made it a pleasure to work with him on this project prior to going live and on an ongoing basis.

Andrew Watson, Chairman : Holmfirth Town Juniors FC

Holmfirth Town Football Club asked Bob to design a new website for the club. It is quite simply-superb. It could not have been better. We are very impressed.

Rick Garnett : RF Media

Bob has been a reliable supplier to RF Media on several occasions and has worked with us on numerous projects. His expertise and efficiency make it a pleasure to have him as part of our project team, knowing that what we ask of him will be completed on time and to the highest standard. He is able to offer advice and pertinent solutions to project issues that may be fully relied upon. We would have no problem in recommending Bob to other companies in our sector.

Matt Drewry : Match.com

It’s actually a pleasure to recommend Bob and what he’s helped us with in the past. Its no understatement to say Bob has saved the day for us at Match.com on a number of occasions. On complex projects, it’s been refreshing to have utmost confidence that the piece he’s working on will come in on time / budget and with a level of innovation and accuracy that our brand and users demand – leaving me free to worry about other elements.

Bob is technical, skilled at all levels of design, a flash genius, cheerful and amiable. I just wish he would let us hire him permanently!

Mike Johnson : General Manager (Pricing & Analytics) at Portland Fuel

We have been working with Bob for a number of years, initially looking to re-develop our website. Since then, Bob has been an integral part of all subsequent development, including a complex project setting up a subscription/login based data platform with an integrated e-commerce package.

This project in particular saw a number of significant hurdles overcome as a result of Bob’s thorough research and dedication.

I would recommend Bob very highly; he is responsive, his designs are creative and the quality of work he has produced is always completed to a high standard. Overall, he has been a pleasure to deal with.

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.

Matthew Johnson : Handsfree UK
