Whisper partners with Chapter 3 Graphics
Whisper, the sports and live event TV production specialist, announces today that it has partnered with Chapter 3 Graphics, a thriving design agency specialising in broadcast motion graphics, live event graphics and title sequences.
With an impressive track record of engaging global audiences and elevating entertainment through cutting-edge design solutions, Chapter 3 Graphics is run by Will Butcher, who has over 20 years’ experience within the motion graphics industry. His company has produced work for significant clients including, amongst others, Formula One for rights-holder FOM, the US Open on Amazon and the Winter Paralympics, W Series and Women’s Euros on Channel 4.
Whisper has invested in Chapter 3 Graphics to enable it to develop and diversify into other areas, beyond sport and branded content. Within the partnership, Chapter 3 Graphics will remain free to work with other competitive companies, as suits its business.
Chapter 3 Graphics has partnered with Whisper to draw on its significant reach and expertise in the industry, as well as its impressive and expanding infrastructure and facilities.
“I’ve worked closely with Whisper over the last eight years and love the ethos of the company; it’s always exciting to be involved in their productions”, commented Chapter 3 Graphics Managing Director, Will Butcher. “A partnership is a fantastic opportunity for Chapter 3, but more than that, it very much feels like a natural progression. Whisper attracts the best in the industry and to be able to draw on that expertise and experience is something I am very excited about. At the same time, it’s great that Chapter 3 Graphics will remain a business in its own right; we have clients beyond Whisper and we will certainly be looking to retain and increase those as we continue to develop.”
For Whisper, this is a significant moment for the sports and live event TV production specialist. Having become a leading player in the market, Whisper is both strengthening and broadening its organisational set-up.
“It’s great to partner with Will and his team,” said Whisper CEO, Sunil Patel. “Chapter 3 Graphics is a very strong addition to the Whisper set-up. Their talent is significant; the team is slick, creative, delivers beyond expectation and their ambition and drive is very much on a par with our own. It’s a great first partnership for Whisper; there is a lot to look forward to.”
Whisper was established in 2010 by CEO Sunil Patel, Jake Humphrey and David Coulthard. It is an exciting time for the team. This year, it received a raft of award nominations, including two for Best Sports Programme at the Broadcast Awards, for its Channel 4 F1 coverage and the BBC NFL Show. Whisper’s current sports and live events portfolio includes Formula 1, Rugby World Cup, Women’s Six Nations, SailGP, W Series, Women’s Super League and the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics.
