What took you so long?

Sometimes it feels like the Internet has been there forever. But it’s still a teenager. We should know. We were there when the web celebrated its first birthday.

At 1st Web (it tells you something about how long we’ve been webbies, in that we could register that domain name) we designed our first website in 1997 – the year that Tony Blair moved into Downing Street. At the time most businesses were asking why they should be on the web. Within a few years, websites had become essential. Now, they’re everywhere, and we’ve designed well over 300 of them.

Odds are, you’ve got a website. Odds are, too, that it’s been around for a while, and like many teenagers is looking a bit scruffy, and doesn’t always meet your expectations. Whether your business is big or small – or somewhere in between – If it’s time to rethink your web presence, it’s time to talk to us… Give us a call on 020 7099 9075.

Some of our lovely clients

Over the years we've worked with hundreds of clients and one or two are still with us from the very early years. Below are some examples of websites our London-based design team have created over the last year or two.

How long have we been here for?

it feels like forever...

In 1997 two businesses started with very different visions – one created bespoke website solutions whilst the other offered affordable creative design and print. Both businesses did well but one couldn’t help clients with print and the other didn’t have an online presence or expertise.

In 2002 the two companies merged and have been evolving and growing ever since. Since 2005 our Central London studio began offering the printing.com range of print services and we invested in on-site production equipment, we now offer the same on-site and off-site services from our central London and Putney studios.

We help around 800 businesses a year (including some of the UK’s most respected brands and a number of whom have been loyal clients since the early days) with their creative requirements. Unlike most web studios we have genuine in-house print expertise (and unlike most graphic design studios also know the web).

So, if you’d like a creative partner that understands the web as well as they do print (or even if you only need one of these disciplines) why not call us today? The central London studio can be reached on 020 7099 9075 and Putney is on 020 8912 0880 or just email help@firstcreative.co.uk with details and we’ll be happy to see what we can do.
