We are a truly dedicated boutique design agency, working from our purpose-built “eco-friendly” studio based in Greenwich, London. Light, fresh and vibrant, we have the perfect environment to get creative. Our location and low running costs enable us to keep our rates down,… not having †premises based within the city centre means no extortionate overheads, therefore our prices are always very competitive. Our dedicated team strive to give one-to-one attention, creating a strong working bond and a true understanding of our clients needs.
We love where we work, we are passionate about what we do and it shows in everything that leaves the studio.
The Secret Ingredient
How We Work
At Hatch we aim to develop an excellent relationship with you. This is done by ensuring your targets, budgets and deadlines are met. From start to finish you will be in direct contact with the designers dealing with your project, who will do whatever possible to ensure your every need is met. Our passion for design and results is obvious in all that we do.
Hatch is small enough to care but big enough to cope.
Our office follows a daily recycling policy especially concerning paper goods. All unwanted paper is recycled along with other items such as aluminum, plastics and ink cartridges. A well-lit workspace is achieved with fluorescent light bulbs along with plenty of natural light. In order to save energy, we have not implemented any air conditioning units within our office. We also make sure our computers are put into energy-save mode when not in use and that machinery is shutdown out of office hours. Our employees are encouraged to use public transport/cycle whenever possible, and are also encouraged to carry out sustainable practices in their own homes.
We do not print any unnecessary files, we have done away with our fax machine and use emailable PDFs as our method of artwork supply where possible. Our clients have access to sustainable printing too. Our preferred print suppliers exercise environmental and sustainable policies and practices, using vegetable inks, chlorine free paper, as well as Carbon Neutral printing.
For over a decade Hatch have been offering work placements twice a year to students from the universities of Iowa, USA. Below are some of the kind words our new friends from across the pond have relayed back.
The Central University of Iowa has had a long and fruitful relationship with Hatch Creations Ltd. For many years Hatch has been taking US study abroad students, as interns for 15 week programmes, providing them with invaluable work experience in the field of graphic design. In feedback all students speak highly of their time at Hatch, the breadth of their experience and the skills and professionalism of the team. Long may this mutually beneficial relationship continue.
Mark Simmons – Executive Director
Central University of Iowa – London Programme
It is always a pleasure to meet, teach & share knowledge with all of our interns. If there is a willingness to learn, we are more than happy to accommodate, it’s great to see them flourish in a relatively short space of time. I wish them all the very best in their chosen professions, and look forward to a reunion when I take the family stateside for a vacation ;o)
James Dexter, Creative Director – Hatch
Working at Hatch was the experience of a lifetime. I was treated with great respect and given tasks that helped me immensely in my future jobs. My Hatch experience helped me land a great job at a publishing corporation when I returned to the States, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
Tara Veeder, Drake University (our very first intern at Hatch)
Hatch was a one-of-a-kind learning experience. They were a home away from home and they treat their clients just the same. Their dedication to high quality work is an attribute I will carry on throughout my design career. Hatch was very much concerned with my ability to succeed and with that I was able to recognize my strengths as much as my weaknesses in design. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with the Hatch family.
Lindsey Trabing, Drake University – Class of 2010
Working in such an innovative studio alongside talented designers provided me with valuable design experience and insight into the profession. Not only did I return to the States with excellent portfolio work, but I also feel more prepared to enter into the work force as a young professional. After graduation, I intend to use my creative skills to work in the media industry.
Allison Maze, Drake University – Class of 2010
Working at Hatch was the dream internship. The team were very committed to providing a positive work environment and to assigning me challenging tasks, which helped enrich my design experience while abroad. Their love of design and dedication to quality are aspects that I strive to maintain in my work today and into the future. My experiences at Hatch helped me expand my creative ability and led me to a wonderful graphic design job at the Iowa City Press-Citizen. I am thrilled to have been part of the Hatch family and could not have asked for a better internship experience.
Rebecca Skalsky, Central University of Iowa – Class of 2009
Interning at Hatch has been an enriching experience, I was able to improve and expand my design skills as well as get the feel for an accomplished design agency while working in a positive atmosphere. Since interning at Hatch I have continued my studies and will continue onto graduate school in commercial photography.
Kristi Olberding, Loras College – Iowa – Class of 2009
Interning at Hatch was definitely worth the trip to London. (Of course, the city itself is pretty amazing!) Its inviting, friendly work environment is very comforting to a young design student. There is a lot of opportunity for one-on-one contact with talented design professionals. Once I proved to Hatch my abilities in design, I was entrusted to help out with live projects. Overall, my experience as an intern at Hatch allowed me a peek into the real world of design. I felt this was an integral part of my graphic design education and I hope the internship program at Hatch continues for years to come.
Anne Catherine Kopf, Illinois Wesleyan University – Class of 2007

WHAT THEY SAY … a lot of our work originates via word of mouth, recommendations and referrals. Here are just a few things our clients say about us.
Many thanks for all your help over the last few weeks and for producing such an innovative and well made design with a fast turnaround. It’s been great working with you!
Amy Jenkins, Production Coordinator, Big TV
I would just like to say how professional and eye-catching the Adam Hall creative has become since Hatch Creations took over creative control for both MI Pro and Audio Pro International, there is now a real concept behind each brand advert placed with us, not only does this work visually, it also gives the impression of Adam Hall as a serious contender in both the pro audio and MI sectors. I’m sure that the good work you’re doing here by raising the Adam Hall profile with us will result in better business for the company.
Darrell Carter, Advertising Manager, MI Pro & Audio Pro

Sparky, creative and able to run with a loose brief. Hatch impressed me with the quality and speed of their work, playing a key role in defining a distinctive look and feel for bid-up.tv’s print marketing communications. A great agency to work with.

Hatch has consistently come up with pleasing innovative designs in a timely manner to help deliver our marketing message to our target audience.

It’s been a delight working with Hatch, who rose to the challenge of creating campaigns which have been well received across the pub and bar trade. The speedy and efficient response, eases the design workload in a busy exhibition calendar.

We have been using Hatch since its launch and they have never failed to impress us. From brochures, advertisement design, right through to magazine page production. They are quick, efficient and cost effective.
