Joseph Holt

The iconic Manchester based brewers have been in the business for over 170 years; all the while remaining faithful to the brewing traditions established by Joseph Holt in the 1840’s.

This northern brewery giant were in need of a website to showcase their rich heritage and evolution as a cutting-edge modern brewery today.

Modern + Traditional

We worked closely with the Joesph Holt team to create a fantastic new website showcasing their tasty range of beers, welcoming pubs and of course community vibes.

It was important for us to capture the essence of the strong history of Joseph Holt along with their modern approach to brewing. We reflected this aesthetically across the site by introducing areas of subtle movement and animated typography, balanced with hearty and wholesome imagery of rustic pub grub and ales.

170 years of brewing

We also created a bespoke javascript timeline, documenting the last 170 years of Joseph Holt brewery. From their humble beginnings in a small house in the Northern Quarter, to the award-winning celebrated brewers they are today.


As an independent, regional family brewer, Joseph Holt places community at the heart of it’s charity activities. We produced an animated charity meter to track the targets of Joseph Holt’s fundraising endeavours.
