The Queens Head Hawkedon logo

Maria initially designed and built our website, subsequently looking after its continued running and updating including its interface with emails, social media of various forms and the differing technical requirements depending on whether it is being viewed via computer or mobile phone. Crucially she understands how search engines work and how their searches can be optimised to highlight your website. On a personal level she is easy to understand and able to communicate technicalities clearly and in lay terms. Maria is willing to go the extra mile, research new ideas or issues, often spots issues and contacts you ahead of time and is always available to help. We have worked together with Maria for over a decade and would strongly recommend her services.

Pen Hill Holidays logo

I was recommended to Mdsign who have created two websites for us over many years. They are extremely helpful & patient, taking great care to design and deliver a website where the attention to detail is second to none. A website is the window for any business; Maria is very knowledgeable in her field, I cannot stress enough the care she puts into her work, she goes above & beyond to get the right feel & frontage for the business, her suggestions & ideas in helping to get the best search results and the time she painstakingly adds to getting it right is a credit to her.

Therefore, we highly recommend Mdsign to design your website at a cost you will be very pleased with.

Thank you Maria for all the time and effort you have put into my website. I am absolutely thrilled with the end product. With many images in my design, Maria spent hours finding the perfect one for each caption. Maria is professional and understanding and her attention to detail is amazing.

Would definitely recommend her.

United Net Connect logo

Yet again Mdsign has created a fantastic website for us! This is the second website that Maria has designed for United Network Technologies and I would highly recommend her. Unlike other website companies we have used in the past, Maria takes the time to understand your company and the story that you want to tell with a new site. When we were not sure how we wanted the website to look, Maria spent a vast amount of time coming up with various ideas for us and even mocking up the design on a test site so instead of us having to imagine what it looks like it was there on the webpage.

Exceptional from start to finish.

We are thrilled with the Hidden Gardens website.

Maria at Mdsign understood our brief and came up with creative ideas about how to present the information so it was simple to follow and easy to update. Her thoughtful approach made it a painless experience. The finished result reflects the character of our event – it’s colourful, fresh and fun.

Thank you very much.

Leathwaites logo

I was having great difficulty finding a website designer until a friend of mine suggested I try Maria from Mdsign. Right from the start Maria understood what sort of website I wanted to create and she was able to give me an accurate idea of how much it would cost me. I felt confident that she knew what she was talking about and that she could deliver a bespoke, professional looking website within budget. Maria exceeded my expectations. She has been a pleasure to work with and has created the website I wanted, quickly and within budget. I would thoroughly recommend her services to anyone.

House of Harmony logo

Firstly Thank you Maria, we are so pleased with our new website. From the first phone call I knew Maria was the one to create our new website. Her knowledge, her creativity and her passion came through the phone! Throughout the project it was a pleasure to work with Maria ensuring every detail was discussed and understood along the way. Nothing was too much trouble.

We ended up with all our requirements met and so much more. Since launching our site Maria has been a great support to us.

Ribbon Projects Logo

Maria, we can’t speak highly enough of your services.

From our initial introduction – which came by a recommendation made by one of our suppliers, and an existing client of yours – we had complete confidence in your ability to capture our vision. You were incredibly quick to grasp the nature of our industry and really helped steer the creative side of the site to get the aesthetic just right. I’m sure we were quite demanding as clients go (that’s designers for you!) and were especially grateful for all of your patience during our build.

A truly fantastic service.

ARM Locksmith logo

Having found Maria quite by chance she has proved to be a fantastic asset and most valuable source of information and advice. She is most approachable and gives you her honest opinion in plain English. To date nothing has proved too much trouble for her, and I am quite a demanding nuisance at times. Thank you for all your help and continuing support Maria.

The Garden Barn logo

Mdsign has been helping us since we opened in 2006. There is nothing more important to our business than the design of our website as it is the first thing that our prospective clients see. We have had one major re-design since we went online and our website is something that we are aware needs constant up-dating. We really like to support businesses in the local community and Maria has been ideal for us. She is always on hand to help and give advice.

Barrow Benefice logo

Maria has been a most amazing person; she is so professional and creative in her work which for our churches, was to totally revamp our website. She went above and beyond our expectations – keen to perfect everything she did, to learn and understand more about us so that she could make our website authentic, exciting and eye-catching. Five stars don’t do her justice – 10 stars do! Thank you Maria, our website is far better than we ever expected!!

Simon Kimber Cars Limited logo

Having had two websites constructed by Maria at Mdsign over the last eight years, this is the easiest testimonial I have ever had to write as I can only report good things.

Her knowledge of the industry is impresssive and she is up to date with all the current trends and available devices enabling her to build you a great website.

Her work and attention to detail has definitely helped grow my business and, with her constant support, I feel confident of continued success.

Her ability to understand and interpret my flimsy ideas into a strong and coherent design is her great asset as is her patience!

I would strongly recommend Maria and Mdsign to anyone wishing to create a professional ‘shop window’ to help grow and expand their business in this increasingly ‘digital age’.

Jordan Environmental logo

I really enjoyed working with Maria at Mdsign on our new Website project.

She was friendly, professional and liked to keep things on schedule, which is good for me.

She was also creative and had lots of ideas, but was always interested in my thoughts on how best to project the company image that I really wanted for Jordan Environmental.

Essentially, I always felt that Maria’s main motivation was not so much the commercial success of the project to her, but was to create a finished product that Jordan Environmental could be proud of and that she could be proud of also!

Baytree Bathrooms logo

Maria from Mdsign was recommended to me by a client of ours which lead me to make contact. We had survived with a homemade website since we opened the business and now that we are well established the old website did not portray us in the right light.

Right from the start Maria grasped what we were looking for in a new website and came up with some brilliant ideas. Due to the business being so busy I had very little time to dedicate to the new website, Maria was extremely patient and understanding. A basic layout and idea for the website was drawn up for us to view and work from. We provided Maria with the content and some images for the website and Maria set to work on the website. What Maria designed for us was very creative and had very little input from us.

The changing over of our old website to the new was extremely complicated and we would never have done it without Maria’ guidance and patience, Maria knew exactly what she was doing and made this really quite simple.

Maria really did take all the hassle out of producing a new website for us. We are extremely pleased with the finished results of the website, it looks extremely professional with some very personal touches.

I would recommend Mdsign without hesitation. Thank you Maria and we look forward to working with you closely as our website and business evolves.

Over the moon with our renovated website George Margarson Racing, we gave Maria an idea of what we wanted and no stone was left unturned to ensure we got across the messages and look we wanted! It was great working with Maria on the site I’m almost sad its over!

Wickhambrook village website  logo

The Wickhambrook website is provided to the village by the Parish Council in conjunction with Maria Sumner of Mdsign. Maria has done wonderful work re-vamping the whole site with easy links to follow for more information on every facet of life in the village. A huge vote of thanks must go to Maria for the hours of time and attention to detail that have made this a really interesting site to visit. If you have not done so already take a look – you are sure to become a regular visitor to the site once you have done so.

Sonya Thorburn
Parish Clerk (2018)
Wickhambrook Parish Council

Maria has operated a website for Wickhambrook Parish Council for almost 10 years including a major re-design and update some 4 years ago. The site covers all aspects of village life – the Surgery, the School, Community Groups and Sports Clubs, Churches, local walks, history, etc – and emphasizes forthcoming events e.g. Wickhambrook Fireworks, Over 60s Christmas Party and Flu’ clinic.

The website is of particular importance to the Parish Council because parishioners and the local Press need to know what has been decided at the monthly meetings. An agenda is published the weekend before the Thursday committee meeting and the approved minutes are published the day following the meeting. Everyone knows what has taken place and if there are areas of concern parishioners can raise them at the following month’s meeting. I am always amazed how attractive and vital a website can be and this is entirely due to Maria’s skill and enthusiasm.

Happy Days Childcare logo

After changing ownership at Happy Days in August 2016 we wanted to update and create a website that reflected how we had changed with the times.

Maria has been fantastic in helping us with this process, even when we had difficulties with the changes in technology. Our new website has made us all excited with how we interact with both our existing and potential parents.

We are looking forward to growing our business and improving our skills!

Thank you.

Grove Farm Stud logo

Mdsign created our original website; we were very pleased with the extra business generated.

The reduced expenditure on advertising has resulted in significant cost savings.

In 2016, Maria redesigned our website to make it more user-friendly for tablet and mobiles. The updated website has been well received by new clients from France, Switzerland and Germany. Maria has also guided us through the new GDPR, Cookie and Privacy policies.

I thoroughly recommend Mdsign for Website Design, Registration and Administration.

Quality Maps logo

Maria helped set up my new website which was not a straightforward task as I had a number of unusual requests which I wanted built in.

I had already used GoDaddy and WordPress for an earlier website but I was unhappy using it without the technical knowledge to amend the site to my own requirements and keep up to date with all the current legislation. I therefore needed professional help to start again and oversee it for me.

Maria proved to be especially helpful and her depth of knowledge was excellent. I am very pleased with my new website.

Mark Last Handmade Kitchens and Furniture logo

Being a total technophobe and feeling my business would benefit from a website, it felt like quite a daunting challenge of how to go about it and who to ask. Fortunately for me I asked Maria. Her talent for listening to your ideas and translating them with her expertise into your website is brilliant. It is a good feeling to talk to prospective customers and say, ” you can see this on my website.” It is such a good tool to help customers see furniture I have made, and help them to choose the designs they want. I have had many people say how nice my website is, so I am confident that it projects my business in positive way and can guarantee it has brought me in work that I would otherwise have missed out on. I cannot think of a more cost effective and efficient way of sourcing customers, having a really professional showcase for your products and raising the image or your business.

Maria, is great to work with and takes the time to understand the product so that a lot of the work can be done by Maria before the site owner gets to fine tune. Quite reasonable charge for our website.

John Hendy

A year ago my time was critically limited. Simultaneously, my business website DIY support software was about to be withdrawn and the domain names, that I had collected over several years for future projects, were lodged with an unhelpful host and needed review. Despite being very involved in computing for 43 years, I needed help.

I contacted Maria. She had been recommended by a business associate. I explained my tight situation and my need to have a one-stop shop for all of my present and future web-related needs. 

Within days I found that I had hit gold. Within a week Maria had reviewed my domains and fully understood my reasons for retaining them. She researched, defined and presented me with my options and future costs. 

Suitably informed, we made basic decisions, sorted the ‘keepers’, cut out  EC registration and other difficulties and scheduled all of them to be transferred to her care as their renewals fell due. Maria made all the arrangements and navigated a world that, frankly, I would not have had a snowball’s chance in. 

My DIY website data was saved and transferred to Maria’s care. We agreed an outline and Maria completely overhauled and re-created it in up-to-date software and also made it mobile ‘phone friendly. Very little changed from her first draft to the final version. 

Over the last year I have known that my domains and website are in very safe hands. If I have needed to do something or to sanction a change, like the option to take a deal on longer term renewals, I knew that Maria would be in touch.

My time is still critically limited, but my Web-presence and Domains are up-to-date and, in her hands, future-proofed.

I would be happy to recommend her services to anyone.

Maria heads the preparation of a highly professional web design service whether the requirement new and fully conceptual, or as in our case, the upgrading of our site to make it user friendly, and to incorporate that latest thought process on web design.

We are a charity and the site Maria has designed reflects the skill, enthusiasm, and generosity in doing such a worthwhile job.

Helen Allison Garden Design logo

Thank you Maria for the long hours, careful thought, and creativity that went in to the design of my website. It is a very professional job while at the same time it still feels personal to me. It looks great, and is well laid out with concise information, which gives my clients a really favourable first impression of my business, and that is borne out by the amount of work it has generated for me. I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Mdsign.

Jayne Pope Artist logo

I initially chose Maria to design my website as I liked her measured approach and thought I could work with her. Our collaboration was such a pleasure, her ideas and energy drove it forward, inspiring me also.

Her creativity, tireless attention to detail and her ability to understand my work and my personality has created a website that has exceeded my expectations.

The site is innovative, clever, easy to use and is comprehensive and flows .

Maria is a consummate professional and I feel very privileged to have benefited from her unstinting effort and talent. Maria gives over and above what one would expect ,which is so rare these days , that is why her results are so successful.

Dogs and Wellies logo

Having used Maria’s design and marketing services over 10 years ago, (before websites were essential for small businesses) I was confident that she would be the only website designer for me. I have not been disappointed.

Maria’s attention to detail is second to none, she is patient and understanding to a complete technophobe (me). Nothing has been too much trouble. The setting up of my website coincided with all the new rules around GDPR, Maria has guided me through it and has taken my worries away. Who could ask for more?

Most importantly, my website looks AMAZING. Thankyou Maria.

I would not hesitate to recommend Mdsign to anyone.

The brief to Mdsign was ‘make it look fantastic but to not require too much text’.

As usual Maria’s interpretation was spot on, and as a bonus after just a few months we already rank number one on Google for the search terms ‘office relocation london’, and ‘office move london’.
