Hospitality & Leisure

We specialise in helping hospitality and leisure businesses grow.

From new openings and re-launches to brand building and promotions, we know how to drive footfall, increase bookings and optimise customer spend for pubs, restaurants, hotels, spas and other venues and visitor destinations.

We have extensive experience of working in the hospitality sector and our clients include Beetham Nurseries, the Club at Holbrook, Holbrook Manor, the Horns, Keswick Tourism, Lancaster Brewery, the Mill at Ulverston, the Plough at Lupton, the Spa at Underscar, the Sun Hotel & Bar, the Weighbridge Brewhouse, Windermere Jetty and Wrapora.

As an integrated creative agency we offer our clients a range of services including brand identity design, web design, social media management, print design, and public relations.

We also created a gift voucher platform called Regalo for hospitality businesses.

Our mission is to help optimise the revenue potential of every venue.

We can help…

  • Build a compelling brand narrative
  • Increase customer loyalty and repeat visits
  • Attract new customers and increase awareness
  • Increase direct bookings
  • Achieve an outstanding ROI

We are an enthusiastic and experienced team with a can-do attitude, and a collaborative approach, which means our clients trust us to deliver their objectives as extension of their team.

If you are seeking to improve the performance of your hospitality and leisure business please do get in touch, we’d love to learn about your specific objectives – and help you achieve them.

We are members of Cumbria Tourism, Marketing Lancashire, and the Lakes Hospitality Association, and we regularly exhibit at hospitality and leisure industry events including Northern Restaurant & Bar (NR&B) and the Lakes Hospitality Trade Show.

How We Work


At the beginning of the project we make sure we fully understand your objectives for your venue or group. We then undertake competitor analysis, study market trends, review your existing assets, and develop your unique customer value proposition.



We firmly believe that the best work comes as a result of good processes, and that's why we plan projects with defined opportunities for collaboration, review and feedback. It means there are no surprises, and you achieve the outcomes you want.



We live and breath hospitality, and we know what works, whether it's immersive food photography on your website, the psychology of menu design, the design of your POS collateral, or the essence of your brand. We use design to increase your revenue.



Our team are at the top of their game. We work across a range of technologies, integrations and expertise, so we can craft exactly what you need for your customers, whether it's an intuitive menu or a streamlined booking process, on a phone, tablet or laptop.



Our work isn't done until we've measured the results, and used that data to improve your performance. Whether it's increasing your followers, achieving media coverage, driving loyalty and footfall, or maximising your average order value, we've got you covered.
