Mixd are moving to Leeds

12/03/2018 by Fran Davison

Mixd are moving! We are expanding the team and moving to new offices at the Leeming Building in Leeds with plans to move to even larger premises later in 2018. Our new home is right in the heart of the city and only a short walk to the train station.

Phil Shackleton said:

“As we continue to grow, we are servicing an increasingly national client base, and the transport links Leeds has to offer are vital. We will create five new jobs spanning design and development and we aim to attract the best talent the region has to offer.”

#Leeds

The Northern powerhouse

We believe Leeds gives us the best opportunity to continue our growth, especially as it’s increasingly becoming the hub for technology. The investment coming into the city is improving not just in terms of business and technology but in its re-development and infrastructure. The digital GVA alone is £688 million according to technation.co.uk.

The culture

We want to be a prominent fixture in Leeds and be known for what we do best. Over the years we  have built a strong reputation for rigorous research and standout UX design and have worked with some great businesses including many projects for the NHS. We want to join and be a part of a city with an innovative and inspiring culture. The variety of industry events that take place means we can learn from other like-minded individuals. Learning more means improving ourselves and our service to you!

The education

Once a year we run an intensive three-day course for up to 10 students called Work the Web. It has close links with Leeds Beckett University and the University of Leeds that help to attract over 100 applications from across the UK and Europe. We also work extensively with both universities in lecturing and mentoring the next generation of designers and developers. We believe it’s our chance to give something back to our industry, to spread the word, teach and inspire.

Come and say hi!

So all that’s left to say is please pop in and say hello! The kettle is always on and we’ve got some great coffee from La Bottega Milanese.
