+ About HBarnes

Stacks Image 314
For over 20 years HBarnes Websites has produced creative and admired websites for individuals and companies in the creative industries including classical, jazz and commercial music, TV, fashion and art. Many clients have been with HBarnes Websites from the outset, benefitting from ongoing updates and management of their site as well as refreshed or new designs as technology has developed over the recent years.

HBarnes (previously "HBrougham") Websites was established by Henrietta Barnes in 1999. After graduating in music and gaining experience in commercial PR and marketing companies, she formed an Artists Management company, representing performers and composers and working as a concert manager. Joining United Music Publishers in 1994 she became Promotion Manager and negotiated commissions for leading composers of the day, as well as helping develop careers of younger artists.
Whilst working on an MA in musicology at Huddersfield University, she was a co-editor of the acclaimed Ashgate Press publication "Uncommon Ground; The Music of Michael Finnissy" with Christopher Fox and Ian Pace. She is honoured to be the dedicatee of works by composers including Michael Finnissy, Diana Burrell, Christopher Fox, James Erber, Howard Skempton and Zoe Martlew.

Working on the UMP website lead to designing sites for friends and subsequently other individuals and companies. As well as mastering new technologies on the job, Henrietta studied multimedia at WKC in London, completing courses in flash, director, photoshop, html and sound as well as advanced scripting techniques and database coding.

Based on the North Kent Downs, HBarnes is currently working on new sites for Zoë Martlew and Joseph Spooner.
The two websites Henrietta has made for me have been absolutely essential professional tools and do exactly what I need them to do: beautifully laid out, with a strong signature appearance that suits the colourful and varied work I do as a musician, easy to negotiate and full of photos, video and audio clips, links and text that work incredibly well. A lot of work has come in via both websites, and I've been absolutely delighted with everything Henrietta has come up with. She's extremely efficient, professional, easy to work with, and instinctively understands what I'm after, whilst happy to adapt to new ideas as my work changes. I highly recommend HBarnes Websites to anyone wanting to showcase their work at any level.
