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 Wolverhampton (West Midlands) and spend a lot of my time working in and around, Dudley, Walsall, Birmingham, Coventry & the rest of the West Midlands.
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 29 years old and I was born and raised in Blackburn (Lancashire). I moved from Blackburn down to Birmingham over 10 years ago and I am now living around the corner in Bilston (Wolverhampton) with my dogs (Hugh & Rosie) and my 2 cats.
I have been designing websites since I was 14 years old, but as a professional freelance web designer for over 8 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 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!"
I can't rate Tim highly enough he is friendly, efficient and it has been a pleasure to work with him. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
To say Tim is good would be a disservice to him.
By far Tim is the best developer we have ever used to help build one of our websites. He works quickly and efficiently, is always on hand for any quick changes that need making, answers our emails promptly, and is just an all round great person to work with.
He built an entirely new website using our old dilapidated site as an outline, and expanded on its functionality. We now have eBay integration, sales analytics that are easy to read and a plethora of features that make our day to day business far easier to run.
Any technical aspects we didn't understand were explained without confusing us. Any suggestions/needs we had were always catered to, and many things that I didn't realise we needed were added without us having to ask. He just knew that it would be needed and implemented the change.
Not only that but his price wasn't eye watering like the other quotes we had been given for the same sort of service.
Tim Solutions offers the best website building experience we have ever had, and everyone at Ink Express would agree you won't find better.
Check out our website as his work speaks for itself.
Tim is the best wordpress expert we have come across, we have used people based in London previously and they have just always come up short, although he is not local to us, the service provided was excellent. He was flexible and able to video call, which was reassuring for us to see who we were working with.
Tim very quickly and efficiently transferred our Wordpress website to a new host. Very pleased with his service.
We'd been putting off some much needed customisation of our Wordpress theme without really understanding how to proceed. After posting questions unsuccessfully on various forums, we found Tim together with an immediate solution. Not only did he quickly identify a fix, he gave us more flexibility than we thought possible. Highly recommended - expert, prompt, professional and excellent value for money. I only wish we'd found Tim ages ago :)
I donate my services to local charities and non-profit organisations, I do this one day every month.
If you feel you could benefit from this or know someone that would please get in contact.
I’m currently looking to fill the spaces from August 2019 onwards.
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.
My home/office is using 100% renewable electricity and green gas.

Understanding the importance of website design can be difficult. This is especially true when your business is putting forth a big investment towards it. Many come to terms with the mentality that if the website exists and functions, then it’s “good enough”. This is far from the case, unfortunately. In a digital era where the … Read more
