Web Design Skipton | North Yorkshire | Mouse Will Play

About Us


We're different

Mouse Will Play is a tiny design studio based in Skipton, North Yorkshire. Our philosophy is to offer a friendly, personal service and affordable prices but with the quality and standards of a big agency. Here's our manifesto:


Advice should be free, honest and with no obligation

You'll find no pushy salesmen here.


We do a good job; you tell your friends; everyone is happy

We're very proud that we spend nothing; zero; zilch on marketing. We don't need to - nearly all our work comes from recommendations and repeat business.


One size does not fit all

Budgets vary, different businesses have different requirements, technology is constantly changing. We believe in offering a bespoke, tailored service not set price packages and 'out of the box' solutions.


The web needs artists and techies

A beautifully designed website is about as much use as a chocolate teapot if it doesn't show up in Google. Fancy coding can make a site lightning fast but won't please your customers if it looks like a dog's dinner. A combination of beautiful design and clever technical wizardry is a match made in heaven.


If you find a website difficult to use, it's the designer's fault - not yours

The web is about people not computers. Ease-of-use is key.


Long term relationships are beautiful

We don't disappear into the ether once your site goes live. You need changes, have questions, are starting a new project, need to expand - that's fine. We'll still be here - just a phone call away. We continue to work with many clients we met years ago and love to see their businesses develop. We're also a trusted partner of several larger design agencies who outsource to us regularly so we must be doing something right.


If you stand still, you'll get left behind

Web design has to be one of the fastest changing industries. The recent explosion of smartphones and tablets is just one example. We work hard to keep up-to-date with the latest technology and standards but that's not to say we jump on every passing bandwagon. The best solution for your needs is what it's all about.


Churning out the same thing over and over again is boring

Just look at our portfolio to see a vast range of design styles from clean and minimal to corporate and professional; quirky and fun to elegant and timeless.


Skipton's got talent!

Us creative types can be a self-critical, sensitive bunch at times so when we get outside recognition, it makes us very happy bunnies. Our sites have been featured in design books, on many design showcase sites and have won awards.
