About Freelance Web Designer

Your Website Design & Optimisation Partner

A website designer based in Manchester

Hey, I’m Tiago: a Freelance Web Designer living and working in Manchester for over 10 years.

Originally from Lisbon (home for Web Summit), I developed a passion for Web Design from a very young age (in the ’90s), allowing me to witness the evolution of the internet and learn how to build websites, even before investing in a Web Design career.

When I first started, I built websites using Raw HTML, CSS, Dreamweaver, Flash and other trendy platforms back then, but 6 years ago, WordPress stole my heart! After getting enough experience working for Digital Marketing Agencies both in Portugal and the UK, I decided to jump into Freelance Web Design and here I am…

In July of 2019, I received three awards from The CSS Design Awards Community; The Best Innovation Award, the Best UX Design Award, and the Best UI Design Awad.

After trying 3 different web design agencies, who messed me about for years, I came across Tiago's website on Google and decided to give him a go. Best decision I've ever made for my business! I still can't believe that a freelance web designer, working alone from his home, gets back to me pretty much instantly all the time when all the marketing agencies I tried, full of staff members, took no less than 10 days to respond to my e-mails with simple questions. But what really impressed me was the fact that within a few days after Tiago launched my website, I got my first inquiry! It might have been luck, but the website looks absolutely beautiful, so I'm not surprised to see the difference between the site he made and the sites made by the other companies. I can't recommend Tiago enough to anyone looking for a freelance website designer, in fact, anyone looking to build a website at all. I'll never go back to agencies! Thank you SO MUCH bud, you're the best.

I’m completely new to website builder but I have to say Tiago has made the entire process simple and understandable. It feels like he’s available all the time, and the results he’s given are incredible.There is so much to consider with SEO campaigns that I was becoming overwheled but he’s helped me to build a website that is continue to generate more and more traffic.I have absolutely now idea how he manages to do it, but the tweaks and changes he continually makes have a huge impact on the slick and quality feel for the site. Check it out for yourself. Smart Estate Agency co uk.I will not go anywhere else for websites and SEO management. Tiago is the best in his industry.

After spending quite some time looking for a web designer that understood my business and could assist at a reasonable price, I came across Tiago. From the outset he was a stand out professional that took great pride in the work that he does and his service.He was transparent, honest, reliable and incredibly hard working to ensure my website was completed by the deadline with no compromise on quality. On a number of occasions Tiago gave me ideas to make the website even better. He genuinely wants to create the best product that you, as the client, will be happy with. His service is worth every penny and I have no hesitation in recommending him to others looking to have a website made. You are in safe hands with Tiago.

Tiago was honestly amazing through the whole process, I don’t know how he possibly replies so quick with all his ongoing projects. Any question you ask you can rest easy he’ll go above and beyond to not just answer the question but provide you with further reading/video links to further understand what you’ve asked. The website design was professional and better than I could ever of imagined.Definitely would recommend to anyone.

One of the key factors I look for in any professionals is their ability to respond in a timely fashion. Tiago is one of the top communicators I have met and has been consistent in his professionalism throughout the time we worked together on my website. He is active in sharing his expertise and always writes detailed, informative advise and I look forward to working with him with the ongoing project and recommend his service fully to anyone looking to build a website. Thank you Tiago for being a brilliant web-designer!

I first saw Tiago's work when I was on the internet on a different site. I liked the way it was done. So I checked out the bottom of the page and his 'created by' was there. I got speaking to him and within 1 month of the initial call we have a site up and running. I'm well happy with the site. Whilst the site was in the process of being built he has also made me 4 different Logos and with a few free revisions in there too!I can not recommend this guy enough and I will use him in the very near future again for more business ventures

I have no words to describe how appreciative I am of Tiago’s work on the website he created for my online teaching venture. Not only is Tiago very responsive to queries and super cooperative with his clients. But he’s genuinely interested in delivering a product that works and appeals to his clients. I’ve had several meetings with different website designers to discuss plans and costs to produce my own work platform and I was a little suspicious about settling for a designer that I couldn’t meet in person due to the different geographical areas we live in. But I was incredibly impressed with the smooth communication process and Tiago’s skills at producing a website I’m very pleased with.If you’re looking for a top guy to design your company’s website, look no further. This is your man. You won’t be disappointed. Thank you very much for your hard work Tiago.

There aren’t enough adjectives to describe how wonderful my experience working with Tiago was to set up my own website to be used as a platform for English language teaching. Tiago is super friendly, professional, always present to discuss projects, very fast at replying queries and exceptionally talented in his line of work. I’m extremely satisfied with the work I commissioned and I couldn’t recommend him more for whoever is in the process of selecting a website designer. Thank you very much Tiago! 🙏🏻 Luca
