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.

LightQuick is a UK computer consultancy with over 21 years of experience in High Availability and Fault Tolerant mid-range systems using VAX/VMS, UNIX and Microsoft Windows Operating Systems. LightQuick can provide skills such as Prince 2 and 'Agile' Project Management, Systems Administration, Application Support, Business Analysis, VB Programming, Web Design and Optimisation, Graphic Design and Publishing.  What does this mean?

Tim Berners Lee - the man who invented the internetweb presence.

LightQuick Web Design has been involved in the web since the early days of the 1980s when the internet was created as a concept by Tim Berners-Lee. We have created internet and intranet sites using a variety of technologies over this period, many of them using CMS (Content Management Systems).

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.

Tank Exteriors

You are probably asking yourself, why are there pictures of tanks on this site? Well we created this Tiger Tank amongst others as part of a military simulation package. The Tiger is there in all it's military glory! It shows you what we can do and what skills we can employ to make your site a beautiful one. Click on any of the thumbnail tank pictures to open a larger and more detailed version of the same.



We provide training for all our clients. This is an essential part of running your own Joomla CMS based website. Our clients have all benefited from the quality of training we provide, stating that they have felt 'empowered' at completion of the session. We offer our clients three hours training as part of the package which is sufficient for the organisation to take full control of their own site.
