Alison Carmichael's hand lettering for the Glenfiddich Experimental Series.

Project by Alison Carmichael

Purple Creative designed a visual identity for the Glenfiddich Experimental Series, featuring Alison Carmichael’s expressive hand lettering.

The Experimental Series represents a new chapter within the wider Glenfiddich visual identity that we originally created in 2014; one where we have permission to express its maverick DNA” says Gary Westlake, Founding Partner and Creative Director of Purple Creative.


Alison tells us:

“The thumbprint was made by creating a template of a real thumbprint, set loosely with holding place typography to make sure that the copy all fitted in without any gaps. Then I traced the shapes with different styles of handwriting to represent the twenty whisky collaborators and pieced it back together on screen like a puzzle. The artwork was around a metre squared.”
