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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

I work for a spirits brand, owned by one of the major global drinks distributors globally. And while working on a brand project we need services. I found working with George and his team great, and very flexible to meet our needs that seemed to change on a regular basis. I couldn't recommend Hood Digital anymore highly.

Hood (formerly MB WebGraphics) have impressed me with their consultation right through to the delivery of the site. George always listens to me and offers a solution that is tune to what my prospects are looking for.
