Blackcomb Liquor Store


Welcome to the world of Blackcomb Liquor Store, where hip, resourceful, and community-driven spirits meet exceptional libations. We are proud to have been partners with Michael and Rachel Kompass, the passionate owners of Blackcomb Liquor Store, since their inception in 2007. Our collaboration has evolved over the years, from creating their initial logo to a full rebrand in 2019, and from the original website design in 2007 to a 2021 e-commerce upgrade. Together, we’ve ventured into custom merchandise, designed captivating marketing materials, including window decals, and forged a brand that epitomizes Whistler’s vibrant culture.
