The Hive Widnes website

IC-e provides marketing services for a range of companies in the hotel, leisure and retail sector.

Design and branding

Creating the right ambience is critical in the retail, hotel and leisure industry.  Very often many thousands are spent on the interiors with not enough love being put into the graphics and literature.

We have worked with a number of hotels and restaurants to improve the brand identity or to launch a new venue.  The examples shown are Salingers Bar and Grill, NY,  and Rumble in the Jungle kids play area.   Whoever your target audience, we can create the right  emotional connection to engage your target market.


We have designed and produced many sales promotions for retailers, restaurants and hotels. Driving footfall in the quieter periods, increasing  sales of products and services, filling beds and creating customer loyalty.

Web Marketing

We were involved in the launch and development of LateRooms , one of the most successful Dot.com start ups and have advised independent retailers to public sector leisure services on how to use the web to market leisure services.

Shown at the bottom of this page  is The Hive website we developed for a new leisure complex in Widnes Waterfront, boasting a new multiplex cinema, a state of the art bowling centre,  a major new ice rink, a new hotel and several restaurants.

The scheme has been a great success and is bringing a new level of family entertainment for residents of Widnes and Runcorn and has largely been promoted through the website, signage and social media campaigns.

Commenting on our online marketing, Chris Underwood, Director of County Galleries in Altricham,  said

“I am really, really happy with what you have done for us and very grateful for the price you have charged. Hats off to the team at IC-e”

Since it’s launch their website has been used to drive the sales of original artwork very successfully.
