Our Work &

Portfolio

An extensive repertoire of experience.

In this digital age it can be hard to cut through the noise and reach the people who need you most – and we have loved helping a huge selection of businesses do that. We believe that there are many opportunities and tools that can help you reach out in a powerful and authentic way.  It might feel virtual, but the world’s need for you in this space has never been so real. Have a peek below at the work we’ve been privileged to do. We’ve had the chance to work with many outstanding entrepreneurs and organisations, nationally and internationally, and we have built a huge selection of sites from authority-business sites and first websites, to expansive information sites and commerce.

Public Relations, Brand Building & Fundraising

Meet Caitlin Hazell – a freelance specialist in PR, branding, fundraising and corporate relations. Caitlin needed a first business website to showcase her growing portfolio and promote her strategic alliances. Her brief was a simple understated design without any compromise on her expression of style or site functionality.

Mits interpreted my brief and understood what I wanted to achieve, better than I could have anticipated and was on hand to offer advice on copy, design and functionality. It was such a pleasure to work with Mits. Thank you Mits for interpreting my brief and ideas perfectly, I can't recommend you enough!

Restore York LTD

Meet Restore, a York based charity, on the mission to stamp out homelessness and the social injustice it creates. With the heart to create greater impact, Restore, needed a new website built on the latest technology that aligned with their mission and the needs of those who would use it. The new website needed to assist supporters, collaborative organisations and tenants to hear success stories and see impact, to easily access the information and support this work and to get in contact appropriately. We built a brand new website from the ground up with a custom design to  portfolio success stories, campaigns and team members. The new website also enables visitors to download referral forms and make online donations securely with credit card and Gift Aid with the option to even automate their giving.

We used Mits to redesign our charity website and we are absolutely thrilled with the end result! I'm a complete novice when it comes to designing and building websites, but Mits was professional and approachable throughout and she guided us through the whole process really well. The regular communication as we tweaked the design was really useful and the final product is something we're really happy with. We'd have no hesitation in recommending her to other people.

Psychotherapist and counsellor

Meet Kirsten, a psychotherapist and counsellor, who needed a start-up website that could direct visitors to take action and qualify leads before a call. With PDF downloads, portfolio articles and strategic landing and application pages that harnessed multiple-step sign-up forms, we created a site to place Kirsten as serious contender within her marketplace. Goodbye dear unfinished D.I.Y. Wix website – and hello WordPress.

I cant even put into words how amazing Mits is. I just knew she would "get it" - she somehow intuitively gets what I'm trying to say and creates a vision and a brand that stands out. Not only is she a creative genius and an all-round lovely person but she has tirelessly tweaked things, let me think about how I want something to appear, let me alter wording, change buttons, play about with how it looks. She is absolutely on your team. She is absolutely who you need to create your vision.

Art School

Meet Seek Art School, a newly launched school in York. Seek Art needed a highly customised and bespoke E-commerce website so that their students could book courses online while presenting a portfolio of all their courses, classes, workshops and expertise in one place. Being creative directors, Seek had an extremely specific design brief and we had great fun as they contributed to every aspect of their site.

Mitsgriffin has been a gift to us - I doubt if we could find the same personal level of service anywhere else at any price! She’s very quick to respond to and fix issues that arise (we’re on her support plan) and she listens and explains things well without alienating or baffling us with techy-speak. She really understands the importance and impact of a well put together website and is so supportive of our work. Not to mention all the positive comments we’ve been getting from our clients when they go online to find out more – here’s a message we got recently that made us smile: “What a fab website, I’m not in least bit artistic but it made me want to come along!

Drama Agency & Coach

Frances needed a highly informative new website that could compete with the London-based agencies. We also designed for her a single landing page allowing clients to get in touch and book onto her Summer 2019 Workshop. Within 7 days the course was SOLD OUT generating a R.O.I of 48.6%!

Mits Griffin provided a hands on personal service that was exactly what I needed at the right time. She was incredibly flexible and worked around my time constraints and gave me really practical advice concerning my website. She certainly has a talent for this which is fabulous.

LED Light Therapy Pioneer

Meet Shaun Sutcliffe – a LED Light Therapy and Deep Tissue and Sports Massage specialist. After the success of launching his business last year, Shaun expanded into the highly progressive and novel field of Light Therapy. Pioneering this technology in the UK, Shaun needed a website re-design to faithfully represent his expertise and promote him as one of the leading LED Light therapists within the UK.

I needed someone who was trustworthy who would not pull the wool over my eyes. There’s plenty of people out there who are making promises but just can’t carry it through. Mits is absolutely NOT in that category. You’ll not meet a more genuine and honest business woman. So helpful, knowledgeable and full of integrity! I have absolutely no issue in recommending Mits to anyone.
