Design and Illustration
All our equipment is in-house and state-of-the-art. Our wide range of Desktop Publishing systems and Agfa, 3M, and Apple pre-press technologies make unique solutions possible - on time and within budget.
CAD systems convert initial interior design concepts to practical and environmentally friendly products that rely on renewable resources, such as veneers and laminates from birch and beech. Hothouse clients always work in harmony with their environment.
Major names in the retail industry have reaped the benefits of our rotary letterpress design services - multi-colour, offset quality labels manufactured in rolls. For outdoor environments we produce multi-colour silk screened labels - eight colour, pinfeed or thermal transfer.
HSA Retail Online integrates SET into each phase of the e-commerce transaction and uses digital certificates to guarantee authenticity for the consumer, the merchant, and the bank.
Hothouse Design also develops more traditional EPOS systems for speciality market clients - department stores, distributed retail, and the hospitality industries. A typical Hothouse EPOS system will feature a bar code or magnetic stripe reader, receipt printer, credit card authorisation, a client preference tracking system and Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) for processing financial transactions and inventory management.
Hothouse Information Sevices provide a full range of Computer Systems Design, Data Management Services and Automation Systems Design to clients. Relational database systems, and data analysis and manipulation tools are used extensively in projects where Hothouse Design undertakes data mining activities and data processing on behalf of clients. Recent examples include surveys on computer use in Europe and analysis of Millennium Mug sales data for a well-known client.
Our multimedia professionals will agree design concepts with you and help develop the multimedia that your customers need.
We also recognise that many companies wish to have a non-retail sales presence on the world wide web. For these companies our designers can create simple web sites that aim to inform or entertain, or more complex web sites that use other revenue generating models such as banner advertising.

The Future and Our Vision
" Our vision is limited only by our imagination. We can turn the impossible into the possible. If technology is the foundation stone and our designers' skills provide the infrastructure, then HotHouse can weave our clients' dreams into the fabric of success."
