About Wax Media
We are a friendly, plain speaking, hard working and innovative web agency. We're based in Wokingham, Berkshire, but work with businesses large and small from across the UK
We're not faddy creatives, nor are we geeky programmers. Our approach combines imaginative thinking with technical expertise, underpinned by years of experience in our field.
Our clients love our ideas, our enthusiasm, our hard work and our dependability. We’ll turn our hands to any project and pride ourselves on delivering quality customer service and genuine return on investment.
"We've been using the guys at Wax Media for the last couple of years for all of our design/web needs and quite simply, they rock. Nick and Ian are blessed with a particularly hard to find mix of creative flair, technical excellence and general all-round-good-to-deal-with-ness. If you’re looking for an online media company to work with, you'll have a tough job finding anyone better."
Why work with us?
1) We put our clients first.
We work hard to understand the particular needs of every business and are always prepared to go the extra mile.
2) We speak plain English.
Not binary. We work in a highly technical industry but don't believe in jargon, waffle or blinding with science.
3) We have a clear pricing structure.
Our fees are based around a simple time and materials business model, which means no hidden charges or inflated project management fees.
4) We do things properly.
We're experts in our field with more than 15 years combined experience in the industry. We don't cut corners and stand by the quality of our work.
Who we are...
Wax Media was founded in 2007 by Nick Higton and Ian McInnes. Our client base has grown steadily and we now provide web and related services to a broad range of businesses, from SMEs to international blue chip corporations. We operate a flexible business model, drawing on the talents of various specialist associates according to the requirements of a given project.
Meet the directors
is the creative director at Wax Media. Nick's diverse role includes interface and user experience design, account and supplier management, Flash animation, the odd bit of print design and even some copywriting when the mood takes him. Nick began his career in online marketing before taking the plunge and becoming a full-time freelancer in 2006. Outside of Wax, Nick has provided caricature illustrations for two books and has a vague ambition of one day writing a novel. He has an abnormally large DVD library.
Ian is the technical director at Wax Media. A senior .NET developer and all-round web genius, Ian's brain is behind some mind-bogglingly complex functionality, including custom content management, e-commerce, recruitment, team collaboration and price comparison systems. Ian previously worked as senior developer for the UK's leading education recruitment website. When he isn't knee-deep in code Ian spends most of his time with his wife and son, or working steadily through a seemingly endless list of home improvements.
