Whisky is our Canvas, what’s yours?
Canvas is built around an experimental parcel of whisky, so we think it deserves an experimental label to match. And that’s where you come in.
For this label, our designers Stranger & Stranger have been inspired by the Renaissance tradition of ‘trophy frames’, where the detailing gives clues to the life of the person pictured within. So on Canvas, you’ll see all sorts of hints to the Compass Box world. But what you won’t see is an image in the centre – because we’d love you to create your own.
This is really exciting for us. We already know from our followers' feeds on social media that you’re an artistic bunch, so we’d love to see how Scotch whisky sparks your creativity. Painting, photography, poetry, collage, even a musical score – it’s up to you.
How to get started
We have a number of templates of Stranger & Stranger’s fantastical frame, each with different coloured highlights to choose from. Pick the theme colour you want to work with, select the relevant file type and start designing.
The PDF files can be blown up to a larger size before printing and are perfect for free-hand illustration.
If designing on computer, the PNG link opens files, which can be edited in a number of design programmes, including Photoshop.
