I have worked with Barry for a number of years now. Initially working with Flash, we have over the last 2 years made the transition to solutions using Adobe Edge and HTML5 for one of our clients. Barry helped me in the early transition stages to understand what the capabilities are and demonstrated how my list of requirements can be met by this approach. Barry set up a workflow for the production of assets and developing stages and supported the graphic designers with the use Adobe Edge. We have now produced two modules incorporating Edge animations and videos with Barry, both developed in such a way to allow the learner a choice of 7 languages. These modules run successfully on the client’s LMS and have been well received by users. Barry has also always tried to accommodate all achievable requests and will help as quickly as possible when urgent requests arrive.
"Barry is an excellent resource and good value for money. While he comes up with some really great ideas and has certainly added much value to the creative process; unlike many "creatives" he is able to take direction and delivers what you asked for within timescales and budgets. I often know what I want and I love working with him because I am confident that dealing with Barry is going to be a smooth easy process from start to finish. If you are tempted to DIY to retain full control but don't want to spend days and weeks learning a creative tool, you might only use once or twice, then Barry is your man. He lets me get on with what I do best. Top qualities: Great Results, On Time, High Integrity "

I work primarily with HTML5 and CSS3 to build user interfaces for my clients. I have been working with HTML and CSS, in its different versions, for over ten years; I have an advanced understanding of both languages and I have kept up to date with all the latest trends such as responsive design for hand held and mobile apps.
I have been using JQuery in my user interface design for the last four years to replace Flash animation. I am highly proficient in using JQuery plugins to provide extra user experience in my website designs.
