Great communicator. Great work so far. Fast and caring work.Apr 29, 2017Verified
Barry did a great job putting together my new website. He was quick and efficient, very responsive, and put up with my many requests and designed and produced me a much improved website. We did all the work virtually but probably should have connected by Skype or something to make sure we were aligned on vision early on.Nov 16, 2016Verified
Barry was fantastic to work with--you'd be crazy not to hire him! He is a talented designer and has great ideas on how to reach your target audience and draw them in. He was reliable, responsive and delivered his services with exceptional integrity and quality. I highly recommend Barry for your next project.Oct 24, 2016Verified

Pros: He's a good designer with a strong command of the English language. His work is timely. Cons: After he quoted me $1,500 for the site, I told him that I needed was far simpler and less than what he was offering me. He then sent me a quote for $2,000. I proceeded because I needed a site done quickly. He then charged me an extra $500 for SEO which I paid for. I found out later that all he did was click a few boxes to activate a plug in. He didn't bother to complete any information for optimization on Google or Bing. That I had to do myself. So for $500, I optimized the site MYSELF. He offers two revisions and he at first considered the mock up to be the first revision until I stood my ground on this issue. Finally, on my final revisions, I got answers like "this can't be done" when I asked for very simple changes. However, he did ask if I could hurry and pay him today, although the changes were not made. I'm paying him so that I can move on to someone that can make the changes I need made. I would recommend him to someone who wants a site done quickly and is willing to accept it as he creates it.Dec 3, 2016VerifiedBarry S.'s reply
One thing the client failed to include was that I also created a new logo for company which she asked for to be included in the fee which I did.Type your response to this review.
There must be a reason why Barry's done design and creative concept work for me for the past 25 years. From simple flyers to logos, packaging, website development and more he's the best. I'm looking forward to working with him for many years to come. See the website he recently produced for me: www.yo-whip.comSep 8, 2016
