About Me

Photo: Benson Low

I am Gary Barber, my days are filled with being a freelance user experience consultant and running my own business which specialises in consulting on usability, user experiences and accessibility.

Okay this means I get to design usable experiences for websites, desktop, mobile applications and a lot of different interfaces.  Which is great as this lines up with my passion to make all the world usable by everyone.

What I Can Do

I have been working within the information industry in  various capacities since the early nineties.  I have extensive experience in interface design as well as interaction design, user experience design, information architecture development.  I can also code as well as design. although I reverse this for prototype development now.

Having travelled through various roles within the information and web industry  from design and development in the government, energy and  private sectors –  I have  designed large intranets, social media sites, CMS and realigned sites back to their core business via the use of the industries best practices.

All the while I have been doing this I have from time to time been mentoring teams and exercising my passion for  creativity, usability and accessibility.

Contributing to the Community

I consider contributing to the community as an important aspect of ones career.  Therefore I am constantly volunteering my time to various professional bodies. I have worked with the Australian Web Industry Association and the Australian Web Awards in the past,  I have also been involved in the BarCamp movement and various user experience and usability groups.

I also do a fair amount of public speaking on web and freelancing related topics on a regular basis, the previous presentations and their notes from a selection of these talks are available online.
