About Us

Howard Hill website designerI am Howard and I set up First Ideas as a family-run business based in Wantage, Oxfordshire back in 1997. I used to work in the Computer Science part of Harwell and before that I was a biologist.

(I am also a musician and you may see me playing tunes with my friends in Wantage Marketplace – but that’s another story!)

First Ideas loves to work with Small Businesses and Charities – helping them to get a website and to be found easily when people search for them. We understanding that most people have better things to do than fiddle around with computers – that’s our job!

We enjoy a friendly, non-technical relationship with our customers. Our methods are flexible and we are happy to get involved in the wider aspects of the job, such as digital photography, scanning, Facebook, Twitter and so on.

Most of our customers are local; in and around Wantage, Oxfordshire and the OX12 villages such as Challow, Charney Bassett, Grove, Hanney, Hendred, Letcombe and Wantage, and a little further away: Abingdon, Didcot, Faringdon, Newbury, Oxford, Reading, Swindon and Witney.
