What our customers say

We are totally satisfied with the final product and the easy management system, and can highly recommend MID as the best and most reliable web designers we have ever worked with.

And they are so easy to work with — efficient, quick, reactive, intelligent and innovative.

Kristina Trapp
Chief Executive, EAVE

I have really enjoyed working with MID. They took our brief, gave us a great new look and a very user friendly website.

The content management system is easy to use, and their back up support has been helpful and prompt.

Tess Woodcraft
Director, The Centre for Strategy and Communication

From their assistance at the planning stage through to the relaunch of the site MID have been a pleasure to work with, and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

Their design flair, attention to detail and patient approach have produced an easy-to-use website that looks great!

Robert Dann
Head of Marketing, The IR Society

Having worked with MID for a number of years we find they take the time to understand the brief and as a result produce wonderful, easy to navigate sites.

We would recommend them without reservation.

Inder Brar

Working with MID was a dream.

They didn’t simply do what we asked for: MID took the trouble properly to understand our requirements, and suggested better ways of doing things than what we had in mind. I wish I'd found MID years ago…

Dr Ian Dungavell
Chief Executive, Friends of Highgate Cemetery Trust

MID made the whole development process incredibly easy for us, showing a clear understanding of the voluntary sector in which we work.

The whole process of development was made refreshingly calm and straightforward. We were delighted by MID’s smooth handling of the project, making an initially daunting prospect something of a breeze.

Tim Welburn
Information & Communication Officer, HAVCO

We’ll do all the hard work for you

We really understand how to get it right on the Web — we’ve been working hard at our craft since 1996.

We’ll take the time to understand your organisation, too. And we’ll aim to see what’s on screen through the eyes of your site visitors, so we can make your message work online.

We like solving challenges. Crafting code and graphics with care. Making websites accessible as well as beautiful. Creating it will be a pleasure for us, and we want you to enjoy the process as well.

We’ll make sure your website delivers — simply, elegantly and reliably.

A stress-free web design process

1. Planning

We can help you explore opportunities and challenges, plan your site, define audience and objectives, and organise your content.

2. Design

We’ll establish the ‘look and feel’, and design the site architecture and user interface. Detailed mockups show you exactly how the site will look.

3. Development

We develop the code that makes it all work, turning the approved design into functioning pages, and integrating the content management system.

4. Testing

We keep testing all the way through the process, making sure the site is accessible, and displays properly on all kinds of browsers and devices.

5. Deployment

When everyone is happy with the results, we press the launch button and your site is live. We’ll be standing by to make sure it all goes smoothly.

6. Hosting & support

You’ll benefit from rock-solid hosting on our dedicated servers as well as ongoing technical support. We’re here whenever you need us.

Easy content management

Easy content management with ExpressionEngine

We’ve always believed that the most successful sites are those where the owner is engaged and in control.

That means an easy way to manage site content of all shapes and sizes, and for site administrators of all kinds too.

Since 2006, ExpressionEngine has been our first-choice content management system for most web design projects. MID is a member of the ExpressionEngine Pro Network — EllisLab, the company behind ExpressionEngine, vetted our work and judged us worthy.

Why ExpressionEngine? Ease of use, flexibility, and security…


The ExpressionEngine Control Panel provides a logical, user-friendly interface. With our on-demand training and support, you can manage your site’s content quickly and easily.


ExpressionEngine does not limit our creativity. Accessibility, search engine optimisation and bespoke requirements can all be addressed without compromise.

A safe choice

It is well-supported, secure and reliable — ideally suited to powering mission-critical websites. Its popularity with web design agencies means you are not tied to any one developer.

Hosting & support

Top-notch web hosting, monitored 24/7

Our web design clients can take advantage of robust and reliable hosting on our own dedicated web servers. Our fully managed servers are located in a private high-security datacentre floor in Docklands, with extensive security, and redundancy in every aspect of the network.

Security guards patrol the datacentre, and on-site qualified technical engineers pro-actively monitor all systems 24/7.

Our servers are powered by 100% certified, renewable green energy, sourced from hydroelectric powerplants.

Our hosting provider complies with the EU datacentre code of conduct, and is audited and certified to ISO 14001 (Environment Management) standards.

Comprehensive backup

All servers are independently verified as having greater than 99.99% uptime. They are backed up four times a day, and backups are remotely hosted.

Hardware RAID10 redundant mirroring disks mean that even if a hard disk fails, another is there to back it up seamlessly. Disaster recovery is usually possible in minutes, and hardware replacement is guaranteed within one hour.

Unlimited support

We provide unlimited email and telephone support during office hours.

We are available to offer help and advice on any aspect of the site, and one-to-one telephone-based training to help you get the most out of your website and its content management system.

Whatever happens, we’re here to help!
