What We Do
United Creatives is a small, multi-award winning group of designers, thinkers, artists and makers with the common pursuit of creating beautiful, thoughtful and relevant graphic design and environmental branding.
Based in Manchester, England and with a team headed up by Creative Director Chris Edmunds, we offer bespoke services for projects large and small in the fields of print, screen and spatial environment. Collaborating closely with our clients our work spans the micro to the macro, from drinks labels to brands for buildings and urban quarters, and across the sectors of regeneration, food, drink, finance, property, fashion, architecture and the arts.
In addition to our love for design for print which encompasses vintage letterpress, large format, litho, flexo and silkscreen, we also work with a broader set of mediums that sees us go beyond traditional paper and ink. We strive to challenge the role of graphic design within the public realm and our past projects have been executed in compressed concrete, kiln-fired vitreous enamel, carved typography in brass, slate and sustainable timber, graffiti rendered on listed buildings, narratives in cast iron and laser-cut and illustrated corten steel.
Our design approach has been influenced by the early grounding in Dutch design of our Creative Director, an approach that is very much non-compartmentalised when compared to the English model. The translation of the English word 'designer' into the Dutch is 'vormgever', which literally means 'giver of form', a term not assigned to a given medium.
We pride ourselves on being able to deliver a diverse and growing range of design services which cover the staples of graphic design as well as a variety of niche areas. If you would like to know more about our services or would like to see a rate card please get in touch.
