Projects
  • Cambalache: One Night in Argentina
    Cambalache: One Night in ArgentinaCambalache: One Night in Argentina took consumers literally on a journey to experience the whole of Argentina in a night. It was a cutting edge, multi-sensory wine tasting event that showcased the culture (both traditional and modern), the food and the wine of this phenomenal country.
  • The Dots launch party
    The Dots launch partyAkin to a beautifully designed, content rich and more creative version of linkedin, The Dots is a brand new professional networking platform for the creative industries in the UK, that my company, JAR London was tasked with launching in 2014. Since The Dots values are based on community, collaboration and creativity, this formed the basis of our concept for the launch party. The evening saw guests come together on the incredible rooftop at the Ace hotel, where everyone was given the opportunity to create their own personal canapés, cocktails, desserts and confectionary.
  • Cambalache: One Night in Argentina
    Cambalache: One Night in ArgentinaThe marketing director for Wines of Argentina tasked me with creating a game changing, contemporary wine event in London, relevant to the millennial generation and positioning Argentine wine as a "go-to" wine choice for this audience. Challenge the wine industry with a completely new concept for a one-night event that catches up with the spirit brands who are ahead of the game in terms of "brand experiences". I created "Cambalache: One Night in Argentina" - a cutting edge, multi-sensory wine event that showcased the culture, food and wine of the country and took consumers on a journey to experience the best of Argentina in a night. Since its phenomenal success, myself and my partners at JAR London repeated Camabalche in 2014 and also took it to NYC.
