We are a web design company. We specialise in making websites for small companies in the South Oxfordshire area. We have clients in Wallingford, Henley, Reading, Didcot and Stonehaven in Scotland. We use Joomla CMS to build our sites. We can do a lot more too. Read on to see what we are, what we have been and what we can do for you.

Lightquick - History

We are currently pooling information about our combined experience in web design, graphics and training and putting it here in a big brain dump. We will then figure out how to structure this page so it is best presented to our customers. We are busy working on our customer's sites and this takes priority.

Our talented team has the following skills: web design, development, project management and web marketing with extensive experience in creating and maintaining web solutions for clients throughout the UK and Europe.

If you want a small three page site or if you want a fifty page site with graphics and movies we'll do it for you. We specialise in using the new breed of content management systems and in particular Joomla CMS. We choose to develop using Joomla as it is free to the client and the on-going support costs are minimal.
