We’re not just fans of beer, we’re fans of everything that the craft beer industry represents: startup culture, passion-fuelled business, taking on the corporate giants, and above all, putting quality and experience first. We have over 10 years building online brands, and use that expertise in leveraging technology to help the craft beer industry grow and to, ultimately, get more great beer into more hands and mouths.
"I've always been intrigued by how things work and have taken things apart and rebuilt them since I was a child. When I started Hallway in 2006 I didn't shy away from designing, programming, coding and marketing websites single-handedly, or from learning the nuts andbolts of running a business on my own. I learnt from the ground up. That hands-on startup attitude is something that I see echoed throughout the craft beer industry. Craft beer businesses share so many values with ours that it compounded my appreciation for great beer and motivated me to help beer businesses to grow.
Getting hands-on in every area of digital media helped me see what works visually and what is involved technically. It also gave me respect for the skills I would later bring on board. It's for this reason you'll find every team member isn't just hired for their technical or creative skills. We look for their natural curiosity and willingness to get stuck in, add value and solve problems. It's the Hallway style, and it works for us and our clients."
– Matthew HallOur approach
As the founding director of Hallway Studios, Matthew is in charge of all business direction, and oversees all client projects. When not coming up with the next digital solution for one of our clients, Matthew can usually be found chasing after a ball on a squash court, or going for gold at the local gym!
A love of miserable weather had Andy move from the sweltering shores of Cape Town to oversee marketing activity for Hallway Studios. An interim spell of two years in the brewing trade and many more in hospitality have developed his infectious passion for beer culture, and infatuation with big, hoppy IPAs.
Despite being a Luton FC fan, Luke redeems himself with a raft of digital experience and expertise, and by having a huge passion for all things digital. Always ready with creative solutions to our client's business problems, Luke brings a refreshing no-nonsense, clear cut and pro-active quality to all projects he works on.
Having joined us after a successful work placement from Bournemouth University, Nick is now a key member of the team handling various front end development tasks.

An expert in developing enterprise web applications, Andrew is also well versed in interface and front-end programming and has worked on projects for the likes of Coca-Cola, HSBC and Energy Saving Trust. When he's not neck-deep in a terminal session, you'll find Andrew on the bike, being tall or spending time with the family.
