Creativity can take us anywhere. It’s about starting with nothing, holding onto a vision, and creating something beautiful. Bombay Sapphire encourages stirring creativity and their own tantalising, smooth gin provides the perfect creative canvas for cocktails. So in July 2018, the renowned gin brand Bombay Sapphire launched its pop-up Canvas Bar in London. Artists Olaf Hajek, Josh McKenna, Timothy Goodman, Alex May Hughes, Super Mundane and Paloma Rincon transformed the blank canvas bar into a physical embodiment of creativity. They transformed the blank space to an alluring, immersive, and ever-evolving work of art with Bombay Sapphire at its centre.
To promote the launch of the Canvas Bar, Bombay Sapphire looked for creators who could capture the creativity and encourage the guests to stir creativity and enjoy the uniquely creative space. For this campaign, we partnered with 8 urban trendsetters looking to discover and live new experiences. The open-minded, spontaneous, and curious creators took to their social media and created content that cemented Bombay Sapphire’s position as a force of creative self-expression.
The 8 creators from 5 different countries raised a tremendous amount of awareness. Together, they generated over 3M impressions and generated enough buzz among their following to interact with the posts and visit the canvas bar to experience the multi-sensory interactive space.
