During the project we’ve had a personal manager – Elaine, whom we found deeply and passionately involved in the design process from start to its end! From each different texture on the vessel design, through to the illustration concepts for each of the packaging smallest details, Elaine’s attention and focus have been second to none. Whilst working on the brand, she lived and breathed the brand and captured all of our finishing touches perfectly.

Deborah Quagmire

The thing that I became absolutely confident about, while working on this project with the Compact’s team, is that all guys here are thoroughly committed to helping their clients understand the true value of branding… This team’s dedication to understanding our business strategy, coupled with specific brand objectives enabled a successful partnership when we needed to refresh a few of our consumer brands in the education businesses I was managing. Really appreciate the professionalism and quality of work are just impressive!

When we needed both to craft a design for our new packaging and actually manufacture it, in a matter of a really tight schedule, we felt hopeless… Luckily, this packaging company was the universal cure for us – as they provided both the packaging creative design and its manufacturing! With such a wide scope of expertise and a constant teamwork cooperation, we were able to actually manage to get the job done ahead of the schedule, just as well as under the budget! Amazing work, guys!
