Founded in 2009 by Scott Murray, Cru Holdings is best known as a bar and restaurant operator and innovator behind brands Bar One, Scotch & Rye, Prime, Dow’s Bar and Bistro, The Keg and Inverness Travel. In September 2018, Cru Holdings opened its first venue outside the Highlands with the launch of High Spirits in Falkirk.

The Design Hub has worked with Cru Holdings on a number of projects; developing brand visuals, website builds and undertaking PR activity.

Projects include branding and websites for venues as they open, such as the launch of High Spirits and Prime, including menu design. The Design Hub team has also developed websites for a number of Cru Holdings' brands and communicated the latest news from the company to media.

Additional PR activity has ranged from award entry writing, including helping Scotch & Rye secure Best Kitchen at The Scotsman Food & Drink Awards 2018, to launching steak and seafood restaurant Prime to local and trade media.

The Design Hub provides everything I need in one place. Whether it is branding for a new venture, a new website or raising our profile in the media, I can rely on the team to deliver.
