Open Rights Group

The Open Rights Group was founded in 2005 by 1,000 digital activists. It’s a non-profit organisation that exists to preserve and promote the rights of citizens worldwide, in the digital age.

GRIT teamed up with ORG and 89up to build a system that reports on the stance of parliamentary candidates with regard to privacy and state surveillance matters.

Being a digital agency, we’re passionate about matters like this and are often asked by our clients how safe their data is, not only from hackers but also the general public and even governments.

Naturally, we were delighted to be able to work on this project and create something that will actually impact on the decisions the electorate make and the state of politics and online privacy in the United Kingdom.

The client’s existing CMS was incompatible with the new website, and thus the site was carefully designed for consistence yet resided on a separate server and on a subdomain.

The site was simplistic in its approach as its objective was solely to deliver clearly, the information provided by political candidates or, in its absence, their respective party’s stance on digital surveillance and the rights of law-abiding people.

"The team at GRIT Digital were a pleasure to work with on this project. We had a hard deadline and hardly any time. They helped us refine our ideas into a workable design, then saw it through to completion quickly, with a great deal of professionalism and technical skill. I would recommend them for similar work in a heartbeat."
