John Barker Designs is a limited liability company located in Glen Mills, Pennsylvania. "We" are a one-man operation, which means our designer, coder and President (it says here on our tax forms) is one and the same: John Barker.

John has earned certificates in Web Design and Print Design from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, where he became trained in the use of Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Dreamweaver, as well as the art of hand-coding sites with HTML, CSS and Jquery. He holds a degree in theater from Northwestern University and has performed in productions with several theater companies in the Philadelphia area, notably Hedgerow Theater. He was also a long-time employee with Wyeth Pharmaceuticals prior to its acquisiton by Pfizer.

John resides in Glen Mills with his wife Gwen, their son Chase, and their menagerie of eccentric animals. He is a die-hard film buff and is well versed in the cinema of Hitchcock, Tarantino and, since the birth of his son, Pixar. When not sitting in a darkened theater or engaging in family activities he can most often be found devouring mystery novels and wrestling with the New York Times Crossword Puzzle.
