Curated by world renowned designer and creative enigma Jeff Staple, the Miller Design Lab was inspired by the theme ‘gold is the new black’. Five Australian designers from the fashion, technology, art, music and design industries came together to create one incredible creative hub for Miller Genuine Draft.  

Our own was enlisted to help promote the series of events that took place to launch the creative campaign, which combined art, culture, music and the refreshing taste of Miller Genuine Draft – allowing people to interact with the brand in a new and innovative way. The sold-out events had over 2,500 people attend over 10 days and attracted some of the hottest acts in music, including Mojo Juju, YO! MAFIA, Total Giovanni, Spacey Space, Sunshine, CASSETTE, Alice Q, DAWS, Lewis Cancut and DJ Sezzo.

Events that helped promote during the campaign period included the official launch party, an experiential launch event for each design partner, and the closing event. All events were catered by Hanoi Hannah and Tokyo Tina, with complimentary drinks for all guests. Miller Design Lab also partnered with The Emerson Rooftop Bar and Club as their after-party venue.
