I work with great individuals, small-to-medium sized businesses and start-ups. I aim to have a great relationship with all my clients where I can add value to their business by being dependable, honest and by doing the type of work that makes a difference.
I’m based locally in Bilston (West Midlands) and spend a lot of my time working in and around Wolverhampton, Birmingham, Dudley, Walsall & West Bromwich.
I also work remotely across the rest of the UK.

Freelance Web Designer & Developer
Just so you know a little bit about me, my name is Timothy Oxendale, I am 28 years old and I was born and raised in Blackburn (Lancashire). I moved from Blackburn down to Birmingham over 9 years ago and I am now living around the corner in Bilston (near Wolverhampton) with my wife, dogs (Hugh & Rosie) and my 2 cats. I spend a lot of my time working in and around Birmingham, Manchester, London, Wolverhampton, Dudley & Walsall.
I have been designing websites since I was 14 years old, but as a professional freelance web designer and developer for over 7 years.
I donate my services to local charities and non-profit organisations in and around the Midlands. I do this one day every month. Get in contact, if you feel you could benefit from this service. I also donate food and supplies to the local Animal Rescue Centres as well as equipment to the local Scout group.
I have a simplified design style, I believe design should work with content, not dominate it. The same can be said for how I build websites. I like to keep my website markup clean and optimised for search engines. I believe usability is an integral part of the design and development process and something I’m constantly striving to improve.
I believe freelancing is more of a lifestyle than a job and I’m in it for the long run. I do try to stick to my office hours 9am to 6pm Monday to Friday, however I am flexible, you’ll find that if you email me Friday afternoon with a list of amendments, chances are they will be done and ready for your return to work on Monday morning.
I have a quicker start and fast turn-around time, as I usually only work on a couple of projects at any one time. This mean you will be a priority, whatever your website size or complexity.
Any enquiries, questions and uncertainties you may have are all answered by me, not a salesperson or account manager. However if I am with another client, I do have a lovely person who answers my phone to take a message. These get sent directly to me, straight away, wherever I am. A close designer-client relationship means that I have a much better understanding of your goals and requirements, producing fewer errors and invariably a better end result.
I have experience with lots of different kinds of business and knowledge spanning a wide variety of industries. Whether you are a blogger, an airline, or in a field I am yet to come across, I am able to use my experience, learning from you, to achieve the best outcome for you.
I work hard, have lower running costs and overheads than an agency, this gets passed on, you receive much better value for money.
I listen to your requirements, so I can deliver what’s is right for you. I like to work one on one and collaborate during every stage, using open communication and feedback, to build your perfect website.
I have been a freelancer for the majority of my working life, I quickly learned that the phrase ‘time is money’ is often true. I work quickly and efficiently, managing my time effectively to ensure that I can produce the best work for you, within your timescale.
One of my clients wrote a review that summed all of this perfectly
"Everyone needs a Tim!"
If you require any alterations to your site or fancy a few changes, I provide local support you can rely on.
I can upgrade the CMS your site uses on a regular basis or as just a one off.
If any security concerns pop up, then I can tackle these for you.
I will be there to provide you with backups (if you're also hosting your website with me) should there be a problem then I can restore your site for you.
Support if any links break or if you would like to update any sections, images or text for example.
I would say 80% of my business comes from repeat customers and referrals due to my outstanding customer service. All of my websites come with a technical guarantee and I offer full training and support if required.
I build long lasting partnerships by exceeding your expectations. I can become your websites best friend, ensuring it will consistently work well for you.

Tim's service is excellent. He is professional, easy to work with and knows everything there is to know about IT. I would not hesitate in hiring him.
Everyone needs a Tim! He's my go-to for all WordPress queries and his approachable manner makes him a pleasure to work with. He just 'gets it' and is always happy to help regardless of the size of job. A true technical whizz. So much time and frustration saved! Much appreciated :-)
Tim is the best!! I am so glad I had him to help me with my site, he is patient and listened to everything I wanted making the final product easy to navigate and just what I wanted. Tim will always be my first choice as a website designer and I will be recommending him to everyone!!!!!!
Another web developer I was using let me down, so I needed someone who could step in and quickly sort some issues on my website. Tim was extremely helpful from the first contact I had with him and acted quickly to resolve my issues. All the work Tim did for me was of the highest quality and I will definitely be using him again in the future!
I donate my services to local charities and non-profit organisations, I do this one day every month.

I carefully calculate the carbon emissions produced as a result of my servers, computers, transport and a few other bits. I then offset these emissions by planting trees in the West Midlands. As the trees I plant are young, and will absorb much more carbon as they grow, I ensure the long term goal of being carbon positive.
