Matthew Johnson : Handsfree UK

Bob is one of our most reliable contractors. He provides us exceptional value and service every month. He understands our business needs, and always comes up with the goods.

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!

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.

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.

Kay Carter : Photolink

I worked with Bob whilst at Photolink, both as a colleague and on a freelance basis. Bob is very reliable and always delivered projects on time and to the appropriate specification. His work is of a very high standard and I would not hesitate in recommending him.

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.

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.

Karin Dubois : Innovate Futures

Bob stepped in with a tight deadline to work across two sister websites simultaneously, and he was simply fantastic. Our experience of Bob is that he is dependable, reliable, quick, with all the right expertise to have the sites on test in no time at all. We were beyond thrilled with his delivery and would thoroughly recommend his services.

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.
