Hire me

I usually book my available time in daily increments. A day is equal to 7.5 hours of work, which is also the minimum hours I usually book for depending on if we have worked together before or not. All time is required to be booked in advance. My standard working week is 37.5 hours.


All work is billed on a day rate basis with consulting-only services at a fixed price. I always bill in £(GBP) and all prices are plus VAT if you are a UK customer. If your project requires a fixed price then this is possible. My rates are non negotiable. My favourite introduction is.. "Hi Roy, We have a budget of X for X what could you do in that budget."

User Experience

For your online and mobile touch-points, we’ll create wireframes, user flows, information architecture, and interactive design.


Whether you’re looking to rebrand, or to develop brand guidelines and treatments, we can provide cost-effective inspiration and results.


All clients are required to sign a Contract of Works, this outlines the agreed hours, budget or fixed cost of the project as well as the scope and timeline. NDA agreements carry a fixed cost on top of any agreed hours.


Please get in contact to check my current availability, this can change daily and usually book a few weeks in advance. Please still contact me if your project requires urgent attention.

I work from my well-equipped office (not home) in Doncaster, UK. It’s a five-minute walk from the national train station with a 70min train to the capital London, or 15 minutes from Doncaster’s international airport. I can also operate at a client’s premises as and when required.

Let's get a day & time in the diary for a coffee, or a chat on hangouts/skype (roybarberuk).
