Jim has been great to work with. He's gone above and beyond and we've been delighted with his service. Highly recommended!

Jim is amazing! I am a bit of a technophobe and creating a website was a stressful thought for me! Jim made the process simple from the very beginning, breaking everything down into small manageable steps for the few bits I needed to do. Jim turned my website ideas into reality. Jim is so patient when I send him endless snips of text and tweaks to add or change. The package I have is excellent, and means Jim is around to assist with future developments. Jim I can't thank you enough! More...

Jim is a pleasure to work with. From his initial quotation through to the finished website and ongoing updates Jim has exceeded expections and provides a very cost effective solution. His web design capabilities are what I would expect from the big design companies but with a personable approach. Jim is always happy to assist and has a quick turn around. He seems to get the vision straight away following a short brief making the process allot easier. I would definitely recommend Jim to any company / small business or individual looking to set up their own website or online shop. More...

17 May 2017

I have received nothing but great service from Jim, his patience with my lack of technological knowledge, understanding of the project and professionalism is very refreshing. Jim provided an aesthetically pleasing and fully functional website and was more than happy to make amendments as required. I have no hesitation in recommending Jim and his work and look forward to continually receiving first class he has provided. More...

This guy is great. Understood what we needed and set up was fast and his help really fantastic. Would thoroughly recommend him to anyone.

29 January 2017

From the moment I put the "Bark" out to the moment the project was completed - Jim has been there practically 24-7! He intuitively knew what was required based on my abstract description. Brilliant value for money and he's hosting my website and offering regular updates/assistance for £25 per month. Trust me, you really don't need to look any further. I'm looking forward to continuing success with, Jim and growing our companies together. If you're looking for a Star Developer you'll find one in Jim.

Jim was fantastic to work with! I'd highly recommend him to anyone who's looking to get a new website designed!

Thanks Shyam! I can't wait to see what you do with your website.

22 November 2016

I simply struck Gold when I chose Jim to create a website for me. I'm delighted with the result! What was even more impressive, was Jim's approachable manner and the detail to which he goes to support you through the process. (I'm pretty clueless about anything ICT, because I'm not really interested in it, so Jim really helped me through it, step by step.) My website is called About Time and it could be about time, you contacted him to help you. What more can I say? Thanks so much Jim. More...

What a lovely review, thank you Catherine! It was a pleasure working with you and don't forget I'm just an email away if you need a hand with anything.

25 March 2016

I was lucky enough to hear from Jim very soon after joining bark and he has produced a very impressive website for me in a relatively short space of time. Jim managed to explain all the technical side of things very simply and clearly and was always quick to respond to messages and queries. I'm so pleased with the results and would highly recommend Jim for his website construction services. More...

24 February 2016

I was previously let down by a web designer and thankfully after putting a Bark out there, Jim come to the rescue. From the very start, Jim's communication with me has been regular and assuring. The advice has been useful and honest. The work has been creative, professional and far exceeded expectations. I am so impressed and pleased with my new mobile friendly website. Jim is very good at tailoring your requirements and creating content specific to your business. I would have no hesitation to recommend Jim's services to anyone and thank you for all your hard work!!

I hired Jim with the impossible task of building a website from scratch for a top-level MMA promotion. This is more than your "average" website, which required a ton of creativity, attention to detail, technical knowledge, and more. With athlete bio pages, event pages, news, and more this was obviously no easy task. But Jim handled it with such professionalism and a creative, open-minded approach. He was very easy to work with and worked hard to implement all of my ideas and help bring them to life. Thanks to his help, we were able to finally launch our new site within our projected time frame!

I would definitely hire him again without hesitation for future projects!

16 June 2015

Jim came to our home to take some family portraits which I had wanted taking for some time. He took some lovely shots of the whole family as well as some more relaxed shots of family members. The results were wonderful, as well as the group shots Jim produced some amazing black and white photos which were totally unexpected. I would thoroughly recommend him to anyone. The quality of the prints were exceptional. More...

I worked with Jim in order to create my small business website, and I am very impressed. He was professional, conscientious and creative and I was extremely pleased with the outcome. He was affordable, and the quality of his work was exemplary; I would recommend him to anyone and would be more than happy to work with him again. More...

Doing Jim a disservice with the 4 star rating as indeed there's absolutely no reason not to give 5! We're only through the initial phases of our project but I must say, Jim has inspired me with his professionalism, sound recommendations and kind understanding of my technical ignorance. So far, so good and so I'd give Jim a mention to anyone looking for a really creative easy-going designer to work with on a project More...
