Our Services


Logos and branding are integral to your business, sometimes the first, all important step in your customers understanding of what you offer, but it’s often the most neglected element. Getting this part of your image right can be tough.


From TVCs, national press ads, outdoor, vehicle wraps to online – it’s all advertising. Making your brand, your product, your service, seen and heard is the lifeblood of your business.


We’ve created packaging for products from car wax to curry sauce, from soup to glass cleaner and chopping boards to meatballs. Whatever the product, we can create effective packaging from initial designs to final artwork.


We design and build websites that engage audiences, get results and work perfectly across devices. We create unique, user-friendly sites including e-commerce solutions that are on-brand and discoverable.


Beautifully designed printed materials produced by print and brand experts. We design for all kinds of printed materials; books, brochures, catalogues, posters, leaflets and corporate stationery.


Whether you need a corporate video to aid internal communications with staff, a 30 second commercial for national TV or to spruce up your existing film with new graphics, we can help.


We work with all types of exhibition stands for trade shows, expos and conferences to museum and art gallery exhibitions; from small pop ups through to large, complex, bespoke stands with furniture and interactive elements.

What Our Clients Say About Us

“Once again Hive have exceeded all our expectations and created a fantastic new website which allows us to showcase the best of our work. From start to finish the service we have received has been exemplary and we cannot recommend them enough.”

Charity Director, START

“HIVE marketing agency are fantastic to work with. They are proactive, easy to get along with and provide excellent cost effective results. They produced outstanding work in developing the brand proposition for Essential Cuisine’s new seasonings range ‘Street Food Chef’ for me and the team, and pulled together a compelling and successful marketing campaign launch.”

Head Of Marketing, Solina UK / Essential Cuisine

We have been very pleased with the team at Hive in designing our new website. They came up with a modern eye catching design and we are delighted with the results. We have already seen an increase in applications and enquiries. Really friendly team with nothing too much trouble.

RBUK Legal

Reliable, professional and friendly! We have been working with Hive Manchester Ltd for the past 5 years and will continue to do so.

JD Seasonings

Hive have without doubt been key to our growth, they have demonstrated fantastic creativity and understanding combined with the ability in turning our basic ideas and thoughts into visual concepts and products.

Crucials Sauce

The new packaging created by Hive is stunning and has launched us into the international retail market.

The Diet Plate

The design of the stand was excellent and had great stand out. The promotional giveaways that Hive sourced and designed for us were so successful we actually had people seeking us out. This has been our best exhibition to date and we have since had great feedback from existing and potential clients.

Pop-Up Products

Hive go beyond expectations.

They assisted with marketing material for a large media conference event for my company. They designed t-shirts, business cards and displays of various types and impressed us very much with it all. Spot on Hive – a safe pair of hands I’d without doubt rely on again.

The Composer Works

We have been especially pleased with the work that Hive have done for us with our Fears Foes & Faeries exhibition branding and promotional material. They take great effort to fully understand the brief, provide creative and varied alternatives that not only show their complete understanding of our requirements but also challenge our own thinking in a sympathetic way. They produce work to the deadlines prescribed and respond exceptionally quickly to alterations and amends.

They do take things to the next level and offer suggestions beyond the scope of their brief – again demonstrating their complete understanding of our needs and overall objectives.

Scarborough Museum Trust

I found Hive very easy to work with, they are creative but efficient, capable of squeezing the budget until it squeaks but at the same time maintaining quality control. Above all they responded to our concerns with practical solutions that still delivered the impact we wanted.

Scarborough Museum Trust

We have been nominated for four awards in the coming weeks including the BBC Good Food award where we are in the final three. Clearly you and the finished designs had a huge hand to play in this and I wanted to thank you for your efforts. Obviously I will also recognise your part in all of this during my acceptance speech, should I get so lucky!

The Soupery

Hive not only understood our brand; they understood our consumers and created a pack that really delivered! Since its introduction we have seen an upturn in sales.

Malton Foods

Hive won the TV by having a brilliant concept, and they have followed that through in producing a stunningly effective yet simple commercial. A combination of the packaging design and the TV helped us to sell out of the product within the first week.

Honeywell Consumer Product Group

We have commissioned the team at Hive for numerous projects as I know I can trust them to always deliver a fantastic creative whilst always keeping budgets on track. From designing and installing our 20th Anniversary exhibition complete with films and interactives, to our new website to packaging our beautiful handfinished chopping boards that our volunteers make, Hive really have been a huge asset to the charity and are always there to help with suggestions and advice.

Start in Salford

We are so pleased with the finished website, it really sums up what pure wedding photography is about; classic style and elegance with a modern twist. The guys at Hive were great to work with, many people can promise to deliver but Hive without exception delivered everything promised.

Pure Wedding Photography

I would just like to say a massive thank-you for all you have done to develop the new Holy Cross website. It is getting very positive reviews. Thank you for your patience, hard work and efficiency.

Holy Cross College & University Centre

We have engaged with Hive on a number of different projects over the years including high profile exhibitions within our industry.

Ed and his team have always demonstrated a clear understanding of our business and positioning. Using that insight and their experience they know what is required for us and them. Coupled with their strong work ethic and drive and determination to deliver, we have experienced only good things.

Pop-Up Products

Buile Hill Visual Arts College was looking to refresh its image and website technology, Hive were extremely skillful and helpful. An important factor was the flexible way Hive worked with the College with regard to deadlines and availability to bring the project to a successful close without unnecessary demands on school time!
