Hutchhouse kicks off the first Creative Clinic at Milton Park – 29th May 07:30 – 09:00 featured image

Having moved into Milton Park earlier this year we’ve had our heads down, cracking on with our work and generally settling in. However, it soon occurred to us that there wasn’t a massive amount of creative ‘get togethers’ happening on the Park so we decided that the only thing to do was to create our own.

Milton Park is massive, there’s over 150 businesses here and some 7,000 people working on the Park making it one of the biggest in Europe and in-keeping with the trend here in Oxfordshire, many of them are science based.

There’s seem seriously intense stuff going on here.

Hutchhouse win Best Overall Business award, 2012 featured image

Last month Hutchhouse was delighted to have been nominated for an award. As it turned out on the night… we won!

The evening was organised by Inca Accountants who are a major player for all things accountancy related. They have a huge client list and help dozens of small businesses in the Oxfordshire area. Their approach is both professional and personal which is why we’ve stuck with them for all these years. We take great comfort knowing our accounts are safe in their hands.

After 10 years in business Inca threw a black-tie event to celebrate their own success and to thank their customers. A fantastic meal was laid-on before the nominations were announced. It came as a pleasant surprise to have won the category for ‘Best Overall Business’ – just look at the smiles on those faces.

Being recognised for your hard work and  continued business growth is always a great thing, so we have to thank the great team we have built up at Hutchhouse. We think we constitute the best digital agency in Oxfordshire and rival the very best in the country.

It’s been a great boost to the team and we’re over the moon to have this award. Thanks Inca!

The Today Show & Pap The Question featured image

Today we received a message from one of our clients that he had just been on the tellybox. A few months ago we branded and built papthequestion.com for our friend James Ambler who lives in New York. James has been a successful pap for many years and worked for most of the tabloids both here at home and in the USA.

Not content with his lot, James though about striking out on his own and creating his own company. It’s still early days but it’s going really well and James’s business idea seems to be taking off nicely.

Hutchhouse (London) move to a new office featured image

Just a quick post to let you all know that the London team have moved to new offices. We took a considerable hike to our new location… right across the road! Seriously, we were able to walk our stuff across the street. Very handy.

So no great change of location then, we’re still in Soho and approximately 30 yards from our old pad. We’re really happy to be here. We’ve got windows, a lift AND a view! The new address is:

Hutchhouse @ Media Junction
2 Archer Street
Soho

Where have the Giraffes gone?

Where have the Giraffes gone? featured image

With a tear in our eye the new Hutchhouse site replaced the well loved ‘Giraffes’ which have really established us amongst the css blogging community. Ok… maybe there weren’t that many tears, we love the new site!

The Giraffes concept was a step in the evolution of our brand and has done us proud over the past two years – however it’s time for a change, or rather it’s time to grow up a little.

We’d like to say a very big thank you to all of the websites that listed us in their design galleries over the time that the Giraffes were around. If you’ve been sent to this site from one of these galleries then I hope you like the new site just as much.

To Hatch – Hatched featured image

Hutchhouse help launch a new charity website which facilitates good practice within fertility. The website also provides a mass of info on the processes and pitfalls.

Founded by Camille Strachan, To Hatch provides support to it’s members via a website (designed and developed here at Hutchhouse). Membership is free and users get access to an online community of advice and resources, including a full database of fertility clinics which can be compared with their local counterparts as well as being rated by members.

There are a few extra special benefits of becoming a To Hatch member – not only the great advice and information on offer, but also access to the To Hatch debate. On becoming a member, you get access to the TH_Community Twitter account which (combined with the live To hatch Twitter feed right on the To Hatch site) provides the ability to chat and debate about the current issues and provide support for other members.

A unique area of the site will also offer a lottery to its members with fantastic prizes that will have everybody excited and taking part.

The charity provides a fantastic service and we hope will be a huge help to everyone out there that needs support and advice on fertility treatments.

Our hats off to Camille on her dedication to the project and overwhelming positivity in the face of sleepless nights whilst pulling all the various parts of the charity together.

If you were at the Carswell Senior Golf Tournament in Oxfordshire on the 15th of July then you might have see us at one of the holes!

We wanted to get involved with some local events and saw this as a good opportunity to dip our toe in. We made a vinyl banner for the occasion (which for us digital designers is really quite exciting!).

Big thanks go to Nick Ruck at Falcon Signs for getting our banner finished in double quick time!
