Horn and Hoof is a restaurant and bar established in 2017. They were looking to open a  resturant in Thornton, Lancashire that served delicious american comfort food, made from premium locally sourced ingredients with love, care and attention.


Horn and Hoof required a full creative design, branding and website build to establish their desired brand positioning as a restaurant and bar.

As part of the wider digital strategy, they wanted to have a fully responsive website, allowing customers to easily find and book, explore menus and purchase items - all within a seamless brand experience.

The core aim of our digital strategy was to provide customers with a taste of the modern American burger dining experience they could expect at the restaurant.

Other key goals were to:
- Deliver a fresh brand.
- Increase organic search rankings for the restaurant.
- Develop a menu and website experience.


From a design point of view for the brand, we took visual cues from the wood from the bar to create an immersive rustic look. This allowed us to position the brand as fun and engaging, showcasing all the food and the tone of the resturaunt. 

We used Wordpress to bring the brand to life. Through the creation of a responsive website, Open Forum Media set about creating a seamless experience across a range of devices, meaning no compromise to design, functionality or quality.

We've run a number of projects, some for brand exposure and others for specific offers, periods or products. Our activity spans conceptual thinking through to execution and involves creating menus, flyers, vouchers, banner advertising, outdoor and, of course, on-site and social engagement.
