Naturally friendly, clear, warm and British
Nicky Barber's voice is warm and familiar. With a soft inviting tone she can make technical copy come to life.
But her strength is her versatility . Great for serious narration or for up-beat kids apps. Recent clients include Aquafresh, Priddy Books, M&S and Nescafe.
From her studio she can proof read, self direct, record, edit and deliver within 24 to 48 hours.
Or if you want to get more involved you can listen into the recording via skype phone patch or she has good connections with local studios in Brighton or London if you prefer ISDN.
Highly experienced in E learning, promos, marketing videos, audio books, kids educational apps and narration, she can also sound like a stroppy teenager, a cat or Queen Victoria.
"Nicky Barber is one of the best voice actress I’ve worked with. She's a real professional, and her voice, accent and diction are always highly praised by our players."
Piotr Zygadio- VP Artifex Mundi for "Time Mysteries", Big Fish Games
“Nicky's voice, like her attitude, is a breath of fresh air. She was highly professional and the quality of her work was first class. Tone and timings spot on first time! I will definitely be working with Nicky again.”
Nick Gripton - RSPCA campaign video.
"Nicky Barber is one of our preferred British Female VOs.
She has a trustworthy and kind voice that really fits our
international corporate projects. Nicky has been voicing
for Microsoft including Lync and Sharepoint and Oslo Kommune.
There is a certain sunshine in her natural voice and we can really recommend her professional attitude. She has a lovely voice and is always fun to work with"
Leif M. Synnevaag - Voice Box Productions
"Nicky has been great to work with on the voiceovers for our animated 'how things work' videos We chose her because of her friendly yet informative tone of voice. Nicky has always delivered on time and to budget, and has been able to do edits for us at very short notice. She's very easy to work with, requiring minimal direction from us and the quality of her recordings has been very professional. We're looking forward to our next project with her."
Jo Tyler, www.archipelago.co.uk
"Nicky did a great job on the voice-over and it was a challenging medical, technical script. Her style and delivery were right on target and the client had no changes which is both rare and satisfying.
We're looking forward to working with her again soon."
Neil Jaehnert - www.midlandvideo.com
"Our company was in a tight time crunch and hired Nicky to do some voice over work for an online piece that we were creating for our client. Nicky helped us out and even stayed up late to work with us even though she was in the UK and we were in California. She was very professional, thorough and did a great job on the final product!"
Virginia Guevera-Threshold Interactive for Nestle "Butterfingers Defence League" Part of an award winning viral campaign for Nestle.
"It was a pleasure working with Nicky. She is always professional and timely with her delivery of work, her voice has fantastic versatility and the communication throughout the projects has been second to none. I would recommend her services heartily!"
Adam Oliver- Animator
Nicky Barber has a great sounding voice. She did a great job working with us on the video production voice over. She is a true professional.
She sent us a great sounding track and read the part perfectly. I know she will do a great job to anyone needing quality and great service from a voice over professional.
Scott Felsen -C-Marc Digital Video Productions
"Nicky was great and easy to work with. She hit the tone of voice first time and ensured we delivered a great animation with a short turnaround time. I can't recommend her enough and I'll definitely be using her talents again soon."
