Based in the vibrant city of Nottingham, we’re a small and dedicated team of design and development specialists, committed to delivering the absolute best in website design, development, programming and software solutions.

The team at Hood have been working with the very latest in web design, development and content management techniques for over 10 years. From simple websites to complex multichannel ecommerce solutions and fully-integrated CMS systems; whatever your business needs, we can handle it.

But our clients don’t choose us because of our claims or our credentials. They choose us because we produce results.
We use all sorts!

We use Craft CMS for most projects, but we’re also happy to work with any off-the-shelf CMS, Wordpress, Umbraco, nopCommerce and more.

We specialise in .NET server side programming using languages such as C# ASP.NET MVC and .NET Core, work with PHP and Java where required, as well as JavaScript client side programming, including HTML, CSS, LESS, SCSS.

Here at Hood we know the only way to stay at the top of our game and at the forefront of rapidly changing web technology is to create and collaborate with the wider community. For custom websites and applications, we use our latest in-house site base, HoodCMS, built using the very latest Microsoft open-source platform, ASP.NET Core. Check out our GitHub for more info.

Because open-source is at the heart of what we’re about, we welcome collaboration and input from the open-source community on everything we do. Tapping into the global repository of design and programming expertise means we can provide the very latest cutting-edge techniques and technology at the very best prices, and pass those directly onto you. Great service and great value.

2005

The story begins back in 2005, when George Whysall started up a small music promotion company called MissionBift Promotions Ltd.

MissionBift produced graphics, flyers, posters and websites for musical acts from around the globe, including the popular ‘Blips & Beats’ themed nights at Nottingham’s famous Rescue Rooms, which hosted artists such as Canada’s Kid606, KnifeHandChop, and Ceephax Acid Crew (brother of global IDM superstar Squarepusher).

2008

Having achieved success as MissionBift, George knew his design talents could be used for bigger things. So in 2008 MissionBift evolved into MB Web Graphics Ltd. His client roster expanded to take on business clients, and George began specialising in the design and development of cutting-edge websites, programming and digital marketing.

2010-2011

From 2010-2011 George re-attended Nottingham Trent University, where he completed a Masters Degree with Merit in Computer Science, writing his thesis on Artificial Intellegence and it's uses in computer games and online applications. After which he returned to work, with a new passion and a greater knowledge of his field.

2012

In 2012, George, still flying solo, secured a working relationship with CDG Leisure in London. This was a key development in the life of MB Web Graphics. The CDG website that George designed was one of the very first interactive property listing and mapping sites.

Word soon got around other forward-thinking property agencies in London, and George quickly found himself in demand. Agencies including Third Sector Property (now TSP UK) in Camden, Charles Benjamin Associates in Great Portland Street, and more notably, Live-In Guardians, (currently blowing up a storm in the guardian security sector), all sought out his talents.

2014

In 2014, it was time to take the business to its next stage. This meant new offices in College St, Nottingham and fresh talent in the form of Tom Burwood, Chief Operating Officer and just the man of action to help George build upon his success.

2016

Two years later and by 2016 MB was fast becoming a serious player on the Nottingham digital scene. Time for a brand upgrade. MB Web Graphics became Hood Digital Ltd. New offices in the city’s trendy Lace Market area reflected their close ties to the city and its vibrant creativity.

In 2017, Hood Digital unleashed their brand new website, branding and design: A cutting-edge agency proud of their Nottingham location and heritage.
