We are happy to announce we are entering spring with two senior appointments following a series of new business wins here at Hotfoot, including Atkinson Vos, Beetham Nurseries, Brades Farm Barista Milk and Lancaster Brewery (see some of our recent client work here).
Becky Sewell joins us as a senior designer and she will be working directly with creative director and founder Charlie Haywood. Becky has almost a decade of experience in design working with British and American clients in a variety of sectors, including food and drink. Becky joins Hotfoot from design agency Refined By, and has previously worked as a designer and marketing manager for Cross Bay Brewery and Morecambe Bay Wines.
Becky comments: “I’m so pleased to be joining Hotfoot at such an exciting time at the agency. The company is going from strength to strength and producing some stunning work for a range of great clients. I’m looking forward to contributing to Hotfoot’s success and growth, and working with a really talented team that have already made me feel right at home.”
Charlie adds: “Becky is a real talent, and we are really happy to have her on board. This is our eleventh year in business, and we grew by almost a third last year. We have a big focus on the hospitality and the food and drink sectors, and Becky’s experience and multidisciplinary skill set will help us make an even greater impact.”

In her new role Jane will help drive our integrated approach to achieving growth for our clients.
She comments: “Hotfoot Design is a great agency, with some lovely clients with fascinating stories to tell. I am looking forward to working with Guy to build on the agency’s integrated offering, and to raise the profile of some fantastic businesses.”
