Testimonials

Our work with Bob Barker and his team at Shinytastic aimed to increase awareness of our business in the local community and provide and online shop. We were thrilled when Bob and his team’s website resulted in an increase in enquiries and online sales. The project was brought in on time and budget. Additional changes, that we made outside the original scope of works, were incorporated without any hassle.

What we appreciated most about working with Bob and his team was their ability to understand what we wanted and to cut through the predictable website jargon and keep things in English, allowing us to concentrate on our running our business.

Bob was fab at setting up a quick solution for a way to publish our event photography recently, and supplied everything from the photographer, and quick answers to silly questions, to a fab and user friendly interface that worked beautifully with email and social media integration, but keeping it all completely brand aware for us. But above all he made us look really swish and good at what we do. Will be using Bob and Shinytastic for every event from now on. You don't need aspirin for online headaches, just Bob Barker.

Bob impressed me with his attention to details and high coding standards as well as the ability to debug and improve code in third party applications. He has the imagination to find new and inspiring approaches to problems including design and technical aspects as well as multimedia projects. His communication was always precise and timely.

Bob has an excellent range of technical skills, know how and ability to get the job done. He is able to give clear, concise, effective ideas and suggestions for the best approach, and to explain these to non-technical personnel. I would have no hesitation in recommending him as a partner in any web development project, large or small.

Working with Bob and his team was a delight. The website they created for Enviva not only met our original specifications but their creative input into the project ensured that the finished website far exceeded our expectations. The process ran very smoothly and, as novices to web design, being led through each step of the design and implementation was exactly what we needed.

Bob was invaluable in all aspects of creating my new business website. I was able to talk through the design ideas and work together to find a solution which delivered from a brand and marketing strategy position as well as from a technology and performance position as well. The one to one planning ensured that the message was not lost in translation which so often happens when creative briefs are interpreted. Bobs experience was invaluable in ensuring that the site performed well and was optimised for the visitor. He bought through a lot of ideas in regards to building customer loyalty and ensuring people liked the site content. I really felt I received a bespoke personal service and I look forward to working with Bob again in the future.

I know that what you build for us will stand the test of time, and indeed some of the Content Management Systems you wrote for us 10 years ago are still being used daily today!
I am always confident that you’ll think through the development in ways that we, and the customer, don’t even know about, ensuring the end product meets (and often exceeds) industry best practises.

Bob is the best kind of developer. Logical, forward thinking and most of all he can be given a brief, a timescale and a budget and he just goes with it.

Round here we call him 'magic Bob'
