I offer a close designer-client relationship and an understanding service for individuals, small-to-medium sized businesses and start-ups.
Freelance Web Designer & Developer
I have been designing websites since I was 14 years old, but as a professional freelance web designer for over 12 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'm also quite environmentally conscious, so it was only right that my business/life would be setup in a way to better the world, find out more here.
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.
My name is Timothy Oxendale (Tim), I am 32 years old and I was born and raised in Blackburn (Lancashire). I moved down from Blackburn to Birmingham city centre over 13 years ago to go to Aston University and I am now living around the corner in the Black Country (Bilston, Wolverhampton) with my wife, daughter, two dogs and cats.
If I do manage to find some time where I'm not working, then I'm usually outside either out walking/exploring with the family or down at my allotment trying to grow something more than just weeds. On the rare occasion, I have a few days free then I'll be found camping somewhere!

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 means 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 freelance web designer & developer 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!"
Tim is professional, calm and very helpful. I'm happy to recommend him to anyone who needs a little extra help or a completely new solution.

Tim is a super STAR! I don't think our business (Push Rio Ltd) could have found a more responsible, capable and absolutely honest person to support our website. I totally trust Tim from his WordPress expertise to the hours he charges us. Tim is one of the most reliable people I ever worked with and I have been managing IT professionals for the past 30 years. I would prefer to keep Tim as our precious secret but I think others also deserve to have the very best support that only people like him are capable of providing.

Would definitely recommend.

What a find this guys was. I needed help to transfer a website to a new template and it was plain sailing. Tim is friendly and easy going, responsive and helpful. I can recommend his services with ease.

Tim was quick to respond, fixed my website problem and was just great to work with. Next time I need website help, he'll be the first person I call! Thank you.
