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.
If you require any alterations to your site or fancy a few changes, I provide local support you can rely on.
I can upgrade WordPress, plugins and themes 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.
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!"
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 (Wolverhampton) with my wife, dogs (Hugh & Rosie) and my 2 cats.
I have been designing websites since I was 14 years old, but as a professional WordPress developer 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 was very pleased with a new website that Tim created for me. Good value for money and Tim was very accommodating when it came to requests to make changes and tweak the design.
Tim is a pleasure to work with and completed all the work I needed doing quickly and to a high standard. Would Recommend!!
It's been a pleasure working with Tim on relaunching www.huntandwilson.com. Tim rebuilt the site from scratch, simplified user experience and really helped bring our ideas to life. Great job and look forward to continuing to improve and develop the site.
Tim is very reliable. He explains technical details in the way that our team understands and always finds the best solution to the problem. His appreciation of both technical and business realities makes him the perfect partner.
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 :-)
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 specialise in WordPress development for scalable, secure web sites and ecommerce solutions on the WordPress platform.
I can work on new projects, part-completed sites or existing solutions. From building online event booking platforms through to WordPress driven ecommerce sites, my process is adaptable to fit the needs of the project. My WordPress development experience has helped produce technical, scalable solutions to a range of complex, difficult projects.
All WordPress web sites go through rigorous testing processes, adhering to WordPress’ tests and standards.
Not everyone needs a custom theme built from scratch. It’s possible to take advantage of the wide range of free & premium WordPress themes available, and adapt them to suit your needs. Colours, fonts, layout and functionality can all be changed to match your branding and website goals.
Lots of people still use desktop computers with large monitors, however the majority of people use mobiles day to day to browse the internet and tablets are very popular as well. Having a website that works equally as well on all platforms could make the difference between that customer choosing your services or going elsewhere.
All the sites I build, whatever the design will respond to all devices. I make sure your site looks great on any sized screen, effectively creating one website for all; desktop computers, laptops, tablets, mobiles and all those in between.
WordPress Plugins are one of the reasons why WordPress is the number one content management system (CMS). There are a huge number of excellent and also terrible plugins available for free. If your needs are not met by a current plugin, I can build one for you which will allow you to add further functionality like ecommerce, event booking and 3rd party integrations to WordPress. My plugins are built using the latest best practices, making them portable, secure and robust.
I go beyond writing code. I’m constantly creating business critical websites on time and on budget, providing training to all members of your organisation who need to update independently and maintain your website. Not only do I revolutionise the way your website looks and functions, but I’ll also enhance the way you do business online.
My WordPress installation service gives you a simple, quick and secure way of getting WordPress setup without any hassle.
A basic WordPress installation can be completed the same day. It’ll depend on you providing the information promptly. An advanced site can take more time and it will depend on your theme and your requirements get in contact for a quote.
Moving hosts can be almost as daunting as moving your home. With so many pieces, it's easy to forget something. No need to worry though, my migration services are the best in the business. I make sure everything is fully reviewed, backed up, moved carefully, and double checked.
I can transfer your WordPress site to a new host or new domain name with minimal downtime.
I can flawlessly move your data to WordPress. My agile workflow ensures your migration is handled with care. I provide training for a smooth transition.

I’ll show you everything you need to know about WordPress and set up to all the most useful features and tools within the CMS (Content Management System). You’ll learn how to use your existing WordPress website and will be working on it throughout the day. You will learn how to add new pages, posts, make the site search engine friendly and add all of the features and functionality you need to further develop and run the site yourself.
Training can be flexible to suit your needs, whether that be a day or half day, where we build your site together, work on an existing site or even a client’s site. You will be able to take control of any WordPress website, which you can easily make changes to without having to rely on your website developer. My WordPress training courses can be delivered 1-2-1, in a group or virtually via Skype. I can deliver the course in house at your office, home or at a local meeting space with an internet connection.
Your WordPress site needs a safe reliable home.
Without hosting, no one can see your website. To get your website online and to keep it online you can simply let me manage it for you.
WordPress hosting is always undervalued and over looked, why build an exceptional website then stick it on a server that’s down every other day or runs slowly at peak times, this will lose you customers.
Without a solid base for your website, it will be unreliable, slow and sometimes inaccessible.
After years of struggling with terrible hosting providers I have created my own network to host sites on.
I can also setup, manage & maintain dedicated/virtual servers.
