New Midland Group Website Designer
New Midland Group Website Designer



New Midland Group (NMG) is a consortium of three artist-led organisations located in Nottingham: Backlit, One Thoresby Street, and Primary. We work together to develop the profile and sustainability of contemporary visual arts in the Midlands, through research, activity, and opportunities that are additional to the three organisations’ work.

NMG is looking for a Midlands-based website designer to redevelop the consortium’s website ahead of the launch of the NMG City Pilot Programme. The programme will develop over the course of the project, centring around a group of core participants who will be offered a slate of activity including mentoring, collaboration, and professional development.  

The website redevelopment will play a central role in increasing the reach of both NMG and the project. The website will: 

  • House resources and documentation of past and upcoming projects and events.

  • Act as a platform for both live and recorded online events and activities.

  • Increase NMG’s visibility and develop its public profile across the Midlands, nationally and internationally as a platform for excellence in artist development.

  • Promote opportunities delivered through the NMG City Pilot Programme.

  • Be simple to update with regular content, news and visuals.

  • Be shaped by NMG City Pilot Programme associates. Associates will work with the Programme Coordinator, who will update the site following its redevelopment.

  • Align with and support NMG’s social media output and an expanding mailing list.

  • Be reviewed as part of a wider consortium consultation process and by Near Now, who will provide digital consultation
