Rabot Beauty

Tim and his company The Suburbs have been a vital part of the growth of Rabot beauty. From initial website launch in 2018, through to key marketing activity and keeping content fresh, Tim has created a truly aspirational vehicle and Rabot has seen 1000% growth in 2020/21 for the UK's DTC business. Tim puts a lot of thought behind the site, not just on the look and aesthetic but as to how the customer is led and will navigate the site.

*Tim also supported additional website development for Rabot USA.

Simple Watch Co.

I have outsourced web dev work to Tim since I began my role managing 3 branded shopify plus websites. In that time Tim has consistently solved problems or escalated issues to shopify. He is always responsive to questions & in general I'd say we've had no problems & some big wins.

Tim is quite simply one of the best professionals that I have ever worked with. Not only from a web design and development perspective (his design talent is immense, and his development work quick, clean and efficient) but also from a project management perspective.

It's the first time I've had such a complex project carried out completely on time and exactly as described in the scope, if not better. And Tim is an absolute pleasure to work with.

We are thrilled with the results, and are getting excellent feedback from our customers. A must hire! Thank you Tim.
