Formed in 2005, M Media & Design (mm&d) are celebrating this month having being in business for ten years.
Directors Gavin Hatton and Mark Skirving formed the company after gaining experience working for Teesside-based agencies. Mark Skirving, Director;
What started with two computers and a printer in a back bedroom has grown into a team of ten employees and clients from all corners of the world.
Whilst it seems like the past ten years have flown by, the changes in the industry have been huge. Keeping up with the constant advances in technology has been a challenge but the fact we are still in business shows we have adapted well.
By coincidence, Property Webmasters, now part of the mm&d Group, were also formed in 2005, by current mm&d Director Jamie Arthur. Property Webmasters specialise in working in the real estate industry, building estate agency websites and property portals for clients far and wide. Property Webmasters and mm&d joined forces in 2010 and work closely alongside one another as a full-service marketing agency. Jamie Arthur, Director;
We recognised that there were a lot of symmetry between the two businesses. Bringing together a wider range of experience and expertise has allowed us to offer more services to our clients which has boosted both arms of the business.
The agency has won several awards over the past ten years, including the Creative Business of the Year at the 2015 Hartlepool Business Awards.
We feel we have a very personal approach to the way we work with clients and feel any success we have enjoyed has been off the back of this.
Along with the focus on the property industry, the agency also works with many clients from the engineering sector. Gavin Hatton, Director;
Being based in the North East, naturally there is a good fit with engineering companies.
We are incredibly thankful to all of our clients, many of which we have worked with for the best part of a decade. We want to be considered as one of the leading agencies in the region and have big plans for the next 12 months to grow even further.
As well as hosting a party for family, friends and clients, the mm&d team will also be taking part in 10 different challenges over the next 10 months to find their own office decathlon champion!
To coincide with the ten year milestone, mm&d will also be launching a new website to showcase their work.
