Here's some of the brewers, brands and businesses we've worked with...

We first asked Nick to get involved in The Sheffield Brewery Company to help with our brewing process but soon realised he could also help develop our branding and help build a fresh image in a very competitive market place.

Under Nick’s stewardship, our beers have appealed to a wider audience attracting customers in both the cask and keg markets with winners in SIBA regional awards.  Nick's strengths were certainly in recipe and branding development and, alongside his strong communication skills, were an asset to the business.

Managing Director - The Sheffield Brewery Company

We’ve been delighted to work with Hop Forward in a refresh of our branding – our bottle labels and pump clips had been in place since our beginnings in 2012 and the original designs were looking cluttered and ‘clunky’.

Hop Forward nailed the brief very quickly, with Nick grasping that we were looking for something cleaner, more contemporary, whilst retaining a feel of heritage and tradition.

Nick isn’t afraid to challenge back if he feels strongly about a design principle and we’ve found he’s usually right to do so – we’re really pleased with the end results and would heartily recommend him to others!

Managing Director - Lincoln Green Brewing Co.

We’ve listened with interest to a fair few Hop Forward podcasts. Great for cleaning the cellar or cask washing too! I knew from those that Nick would do us proud. He listened to our story, where we are heading and how the name of the brewery and our new brewpub came about and what it means to us. Having a clear and unique brand is important to us.

It’s clear from the results that Nick spent much time thinking about our brief and illustrating our new logo. We love it! He’s managed to incorporate the key ingredients of beer into a modern diverse image. One that will help us stand out in a crowded market.

It’s been great and easy working with Nick, whether it’s talking brewing, beer or branding. Easy to get along with, but not afraid to put his view forward, there’s a wealth of knowledge and skill to be untapped.

Director - Common Rioters
Hop Forward worked on getting our logos ready and we're bloody pleased with them!  There were virtually no changes needed to the initial design, and great to work with.  Super professional and we highly recommend them.

Hop Forward's advice and experience has been invaluable; from more accurately predicting efficiencies to chilling lines properly for dispense, I feel that I am now confident enough to experiment and am consistently getting better.
