What Our Clients Say About Us
OMG!!! I love love love the wall graphics!
It looks amazing and has gone down a storm with both staff and pupils.
We couldn’t get the pupils to work for the first period, they all wanted to look at it!
I am so glad we chose your company to commission the work for us, you have been so efficient and easy to work with.
Bishop Bridgeman CE Primary School
I LOVE IT. The kids will love it too and there are so many subliminal messages in there that they will see every day without even realising. The difference it will make to the way the school looks and feels will have a huge impact on the way the staff feel and act too.
And a spontaneous outburst from one of our TAs: “WOW!!”
Bradley Green Primary Academy
Thank you so much for the speedy response in getting the brochures to us – they look amazing!
Thanks for all your support this year – we are thrilled with everything that you have put together for us.
St Philip’s CE Primary School
Working with the team at Hive is always a delight. They are uniquely talented and seem to know exactly what we’re thinking and create bespoke designs of the highest quality. Their professionalism means that that the entire process, from design to completion, runs smoothly and efficiently, keeping to timescales and budgets. The installations that they have completed for us have transformed our school environment and we’re already planning our next project!
Oakfield Primary School
I have worked with the team at Hive for over two years now on different projects. Their superb bespoke creative designs, always carefully following the design brief, have transformed a drab, uninspiring and utilitarian environment into exciting, colourful and truly beautiful spaces appreciated by the whole school community.
New Islington Free School
Thank you very much.
The children were in awe when they saw it. It has a real wow factor. The staff love it too!
I am so pleased with the final result.
Denton West End Primary
We asked Ed and his team to update some areas of our school with bespoke art work. They listened carefully to our ideas and turned them into the most amazing designs that encompass who we are, whilst enabling the art work to be used to enhance the children’s learning. Both staff and children love the art work!
Eastfield Primary Academy
Hive have worked alongside school leaders and children to transform our school. Our brief was to help create a space to be proud of that promoted a love of learning and our school values. The results are stunning. Hive were incredibly professional throughout the project, caring about every last detail. Thank you.
Moorside Primary Academy
We are absolutely delighted with the website, new logo and school prospectus that Hive helped us produce. They worked with us extremely closely on every detail and at every stage of the process to help us achieve what we were looking for as a school. The team listened to us very carefully and produced a variety of options that reflected what we were looking for in a website, school logo and school prospectus. I can’t recommend Hive enough to any school currently thinking about updating either their website or school prospectus.
Grosvenor Road Primary School
Hive produced an excellent promotional video for us with the minimum of fuss. They were quick to turn the brief into a quality product that delivered our key messages. A professional team who we are happy to recommend.
River View Primary School
Once I’d made the decision to refresh the school logo and branding I needed to work with an agency that was creative, that listened and understood where we were, that’s why I chose Hive. They have done and continue to do fantastic work with both schools – it’s a partnership.
Christ Church & Lewis Street Primary Schools
The Hive team were very responsive and positive about our ideas. They provided us with opinions to ensure that the website would support our vision. They listened to our views, providing us with workable ideas and a clear outline for how the website could work and function.
Having an open dialogue and a shared vision meant that we had a very positive working relationship with Hive and we achieved a high quality outcome with a website that meets all our requirements and is easy to navigate around. The visitors to our website are very impressed with how it looks and parents, children and other members of the community have already begun posting their suggestions and comments on our interactive noticeboards.
It has been a pleasure working with Hive who have produced a professional website which has a high quality finish and is straight-forward for us to manage. We also know that we can always contact them if we need advice or additional support to keep the website up-to-date and with the same high quality outcome that has been established so far.
Thank you to the Hive team for all their hard work and for making our vision a reality.
River View Primary School
The team at Hive have been fantastic from start to finish. They are professional to a fault and work in a very organised, timely and efficient manner. From the initial meeting where ideas were gathered to the creation of the site, including taking very professional looking photographs. They have catered to our needs and been very patient with our requirements. The results are fantastic along with the ongoing support.
Buile Hill Visual Arts College was looking to refresh its image and website technology, Hive were extremely skilful 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!
Buile Hill Visual Arts College
I have dealt with Hive since 2009, during which time they have provided my school with excellent support in the areas of website design, branding and photography. I can confidently recommend Hive as experts in their field and would thoroughly recommend them.
Willow Tree Primary School
A very personal bespoke service with a really quick response time to the queries and ideas we had.
St Gabriel’s Roman Catholic High School
Our website is BRILLIANT!!!!
There has been an amazing response from everybody who has used it and I haven’t lost any opportunity to tell people who designed and built….credit where it’s due.
Christ the King RC Primary School
The work done by Hive before the opening of our new two form entry primary school has been a major factor in our success. Creating a process by which all stake holders were involved in the naming and branding of our new school has meant that three different school communities have been successfully brought together.
Hive showed great creativity and understanding and at all times listened to what we wanted. This combined with great service and value for money has been central to us returning for further work such as leaflet and prospectus design.
Willow Tree Primary School
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.
