About Us

We are a family owned web design and development company based in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire - in the heart of the UK

We pride ourselves on our integrity, friendliness, and honesty and our objective is to always exceed a client's expectations in whatever we do.

We strive to establish long-term relationships and are in business to help our clients to achieve their online marketing and communication goals.

Our core area of expertise is in the design and development of cost effective standards based and accessible bespoke websites and web applications that are attractive, functional, and where appropriate can be managed in-house through a simple to use content management system.

We also provide integration into social network platforms, website hosting (through third party hosting providers), support, consultancy, graphic design, search engine optimisation and general IT related advice.

Established in 1998

With over 19 years experience, we have developed a large portfolio working with both small and large organisations across a wide range of sectors. See our Portfolio for examples of our recent work.

The company was founded by Paul Sivers in 1998 after many years experience working with blue-chip companies as an IT consultant. After a company merger following a period of growth in both clients and staff, we became The Learning Business and then rebranded as Cortexa Ltd. Paul left Cortexa in 2007 to re-establish Keywave and to focus on web design and development.

Paul is involved in all aspects of the web design and development process including consultancy, requirements analysis, graphic design, database design, coding, testing, implementation and support.
