About us

Maraid Design is a web design studio in the heart of York. We've been making websites for over ten years and enjoy every project we work on, whether it's for a local theatre company or a national museum.

We know that effective web design starts with understanding our clients’ needs, so we begin every project by listening. We’ll talk through every aspect of the website with you and we’ll stay in touch throughout the process.

Our websites are a product of our love of design, technology and problem solving. We make them clean, simple, and compliant with the latest web standards. And of course we make them stand out from the crowd and a joy to use.

We like to work with like-minded organisations whose activities have a positive impact on society. We specialise in events and education websites that concentrate on culture such as music, theatre, cinema, art, festivals. We have lots of experience in cultural events content management.

Because we're a small operation you're guaranteed a personal, friendly service at a sensible price (we also make good coffee when you come to see us.) We're proud that the majority of our work comes from referrals and returning clients - it's a sign that people value our professional approach and creative skills.

All our services

We're committed to being an ethical and green business. Here's what we do: have ethical business banking and pensions, offset our CO2 emissions and walk, cycle or take public transport to work.
