Celebrating 18 Years

Celebrating 18 Years of Creativity at Hive Manchester

This year marks a significant milestone for Hive Manchester as we celebrate our 18th birthday! From our HQ in Manchester, we’ve spent nearly two decades turning bold ideas into memorable experiences. As we reflect on our journey, we want to share a bit about who we are, what we do, and how our approach has led us to where we are today.

At Hive Manchester, we don’t hide behind buzzwords or flashy terminology. While some agencies may talk about ‘brand irrigation’ or ‘idea gardening,’ we prefer to call it what it is: thinking. Simple, straightforward thinking. Whether it’s at our desks, over a coffee, on the train, or even in the bath, our minds are always buzzing with ideas. This relentless thinking leads to a deep understanding of our clients’ needs. Furthermore it translates into work that not only captures attention, but sticks in people’s minds like burrs on a jumper.

We believe our unique approach has enabled us to thrive as an agency. Therefore providing amazing service to our clients.

Celebrating 18 Years – Our Clients

Over the years, we’ve had the pleasure of working with amazing clients who have become an integral part of our journey. Thank you to all of our clients from day one, to now! Here’s what a few of them have to say from our work over 18 years.

Smithy Bridge Primary School

Our school hall looks stunning as a result of an excellent service from Hive. We now have a 360 degree learning resource on our walls for all children. The entire process was professional, bespoke and timely. The finished product is superb as a result of clear consultation, an exceptional product and skilled, careful installation. I would thoroughly recommend Hive.

Holy Cross College

I’ve worked with the team at Hive for several years. In my own role, the quality of the working relationships you develop is hugely important in creating successful outcomes and the investment made by Hive in this area has been fundamental to the projects we have collaborated on. Our working relationship has been excellent.

They have at all times been professional and supportive but have also been prepared to challenge us where this has been necessary; this has been key for the work we have done together and genuinely valued. They are very experienced in their roles and, importantly, are very willing to share their expertise, and their time, in supporting clients. I would be more than happy to recommend Hive as a company to work with.
Admissions and Marketing Manager

Grosvenor Road Primary School

We are absolutely delighted with the website, new logo, school prospectus and signage 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.

Oak Learning Partnership

Hive worked with us to create the identity for our trust and redesigned our trust and school websites. The team understood the complex brief perfectly, and designed trust-wide branding, which still allowed the individuality of each of our schools to shine through. Hive’s combination of creativity and practicality mean that we now have a strong, recognisable image which has changed the way we present ourselves to our stakeholders and the wider community. It was a pleasure to work with the team at Hive, who were always easy to contact and who engaged fully and enthusiastically in discussions about our projects.
Oak Learning Partnership

As we are celebrating 18 years, we are grateful for the clients who have trusted us with their visions and the dedicated team that brings those visions to life. We’re excited to continue our creative journey.

Here’s to many more years of creativity and success! Happy 18th Birthday, Hive Manchester!
