Hi there! As you've worked out, my name is Tim. I'm a freelance web designer who has been making websites professionally for 6 years, but created my very first website 12 years ago.
I started websites at a young age, and have always been fascinated by the power of the internet, as well as the massive potential it holds.
I have a First Class Honours degree in Software Engineering, specialising in Website Programming. Even though I was making websites as a freelancer by the time I started, I learnt some valuable skills that I implement into any website I create now.
I am based on the outskirts of London in sunny Watford, Hertfordshire.
However I serve clients throughout the United Kingdom and am more than happy to travel to discuss a project.
Over the last 12 years I have been based in Gloucestershire and Cardiff, Wales and I still maintain good relationships with clients across the countries.
If you hire a design agency to build your website, the cost increases.
As a independent freelancer, I don't have the same overheads so I can charge less for the same quality of work.
I care about every website I create. I will put in the hours to make sure your website is made to the highest quality.
I have the knowledge and experience needed to make this happen.
You will always talk to me to discuss your website. I will never talk down to you, or expect you to have technical knowledge.
Your job is to run your business, my job is the website.
Everyone has different ways of doing things. For creating websites, I use a Collaborative Design Process.
A collaborative design process means that I constantly keep you in the loop about what I'm doing to your website. This means the website always works the way you want it.
My full process looks a little like this:
Discuss your requirements - We'll chat about what you want your website to achieve.
Cost estimate - Once I have an idea of what you want, I can provide you with a cost estimate for the project, with an outline for the project.
Let's go for it! - The next stage is the most exciting! I'll go away and produce an initial design based on what we have discussed.
Feedback - This is when the collaboration comes in. I will ask you for your thoughts on the initial design, and continue the design based on your feedback. We will then continue this process until we have something that works for you.
Next steps - Once we have gone through the collaborative process we will run through how to use and update the website.To be continued - I will keep in touch and let you know how your website is doing, in line with your goals.
