Welcome Backstage

Take a look around at what we do, how we work & who we are

Hotfoot Design is a dynamic creative agency, founded in Lancashire eleven years ago, with clients dotted around the UK. We are branding, digital, and marketing specialists. We only work with forward-thinking clients where we can make a real difference. We approach every project with enthusiasm, a keen intelligence, and the desire to move the needle, so our clients get incredible results.

“I founded Hotfoot in 2006 because I believe the best work happens when there's mutual trust, sincere collaboration, and a deep understanding of each and every client. It’s the first and final 10% of a project that make the difference, and with our energy and positive attitude, that’s where we excel.”

Charlie Haywood, Creative Director & Founder

How we Work


We start with your objectives and develop your Value Proposition. We work to understand your strengths, and any weaknesses; opportunities in your marketplace, and threats from your competitors. This helps ensure you achieve an outstanding ROI.



We believe plans should be agile enough to adapt to new information and priorities. That's why we offer clients a uniquely open approach to project management. We're also careful to ensure costs and deadlines are clearly communicated.



Design is in our DNA. It's what makes us different. We design brands that increase the value of products and services; user experiences that generate more enquiries and sales; and strategies that accomplish your objectives.



Over the last decade our team has developed expertise in a range of specialist skills, platforms and tools, so we can create work that meets your specific objectives and that performs exceptionally across all media, from web design to print.



Whether it's capturing feedback, monitoring web analytics, measuring email responses, or tracking media coverage, we are committed to giving you the insights required to ensure your projects achieve the success they deserve.
