Our roots

Hotfoot has years of experience across branding, design for print and web development for a variety of large and small clients.

Why are we different?

We offer a cost-effective alternative to the larger agencies - and you’ll be working closely with the people who like nothing more than to roll their sleeves up and get involved with your business.

A better way of working

Our aim has always been client satisfaction. We don't take a briefing from you and vanish, reappearing only to deliver progress reports, attend occasional meetings, and, eventually, unveil the work itself. Instead, we aim to involve you in your project at every stage of its progress.

Sharing the same vision

Our web-based project management tool gives you complete control over your project, and the confidence that we are working towards the same vision.

Hotfoot met a complex brief and an inflexible timescale with absolute confidence. They oversaw design, proofing, printing and delivery, on budget and ahead of time.

Matt Fenton, Director, Public Arts, Lancaster University

I can’t say enough about our new logo and website. The clean and creative brand design has boosted our organisation’s visibility and enhanced our professional reputation. Hotfoot’s team was a pleasure to work with, and they surpassed our expectations in every respect.

Brian Johnson, LGEC

We have been delighted with the work Hotfoot have provided for us so far and are always excited to see what they will come up with next.
