John Glaser, Founder of Compass Box Whisky was our first freelance client, he bought us our scanner which we still use, and worked from a bedroom in London and he in turn blended Scotch in his kitchen. Over a decade on we still work for Compass Box across a range of print, web and interior projects. We designed their website coordinating all of the photographic and video content with our creative partners visiting bottlers, cooperage, headquarters and warehouse alike.
The first Compass Box whisky called Hedonism was designed by ourselves which set out to rip up the fusty and traditional approach to whisky label design. Fast forwarding 15 years we more recently set out to design and programme a content-rich web experience across mobile and desktop which tells their rich story of the craft of whisky making and blending.
United Creatives also designed and created a staff manual for Compass Box in the form of a book which aids pitching, selling and the day-to-day business for what is fast becoming a global operation. Not all communication needs to be customer facing but these sometimes have equal if not greater importance.
Other projects have included many limited edition whisky labels as well as bespoke animations and infographics that detail the different blends for each Compass Box product.
