Client Nelson City Council

“HotHouse won the tender for ‘Live Nelson’ in 2009 and we’ve been working together closely ever since.

I have no hesitation recommending HotHouse, for a number of reasons.

Firstly, speed of response. As a communications team we deliver to consistent deadlines. HotHouse support us by processing our content quickly and efficiently. We know Live Nelson and the other design work we develop with them will look fantastic, and we can depend on that expected high quality level.

Secondly, they’re fun and down-to-earth. We enjoy working together, crafting the Live Nelson material, and this team dynamic makes such a difference when you’re working together in the long term.

Finally, they are open. Our work together is no longer confined to one publication. HotHouse’s responsiveness to our communications needs lets us utilise their expertise when we need it. They augment our team, and we appreciate and value the flexibility that gives us”.

Taylors We Love Shoes testimonial

Taylors We Love Shoes has employed HotHouse across their full range of marketing services for the last five and a half years. They can take a lot of the credit for the distinctive marketing face our company presents and the high profile we enjoy in the Top of the South. HotHouse designed and manages our successful web site, they prepare all our print advertising, and contribute to the development of our marketing strategy.

Overall, we have had a most productive working relationship with HotHouse, and their performance has been consistently high. What I like about HotHouse is they are very accessible and outstandingly responsive to deadline pressures and that’s in addition to their outstanding creative culture.

As we are a small business we need to keep a close eye on costs for such services and HotHouse have proved to be good at delivering high standards of service and expertise at affordable prices.

Partnering with HotHouse gave us confidence to be visible.  We knew we were great at our job, but how did we get other people to see us. 

HotHouse have inspired us and still do. I know that at any time when we want something done…..I just ring them and sure enough it gets done, it’s usually me that drags the chain.  Because we have opened our business to them, means they are alert to opportunities for us. 

They have great ideas, some I had never thought of, they are organised and always receptive when I ring, no matter how busy they are I never feel as though I am not important.

NMIT is the largest provider of tertiary education in the Top of the South region. HotHouse has been our preferred supplier for over five years which speaks volumes about their ability to work with a large organisation.

NMIT has regularly adapted to meet regional tertiary education and governmental needs over this time and HotHouse has responded to these changes with us, processing our large volume of work in good time and in budget, and assisting us to maintain brand consistency and quality across numerous publications.

Grand Mercure Nelson Monaco

We were looking for a design company that was excited about the business and had fresh but aggressive ideas to help us grow our business and take our marketing to the next level.  And we were looking for someone that could work as part of our team in essence.

We’ve used HotHouse now for seven years when they launched our first website. Two years ago HotHouse redesigned our national magazine. The new look for the magazine and consistent delivery, at a great price, has contributed significantly to the credibility of our organisation nationwide, for both internal and external customers. Last year we worked with HotHouse to update the design and content of our website.

HotHouse have since taken over production and delivery of all our communications. They have added such an exciting level of professionalism, it’s a pleasure to represent our organisation knowing our brochures, flyers, invitations and letterhead all match perfectly.

And our new website. We’ve had lots of comments on our site...I think it’s the best Montessori website in the world!
