"It’s been an absolute pleasure working with you and the team at Hunter." - Hannah Goodey, Assistant Brand Manager, Beam Suntory
We’re really excited about our ‘little-big-little’ brand activation for Suntory’s Kakubin Whisky. Wanting to drive consumer action in Yakitori and other Japanese bars across Australia, we got in touch with our back-street Shinjuku pasts and came up with a kitsch Sumo inspired roller menu.
Working with New Zealand’s wonderfully talented designer/makers George & Willy and their near legendary roller menu, we twisted things by adding a larger-than-life Sumo Wrestler’s head. Illustrated by regular co-creator Nick Spender, the head is positioned just so that you can pull down on his ‘tongue’ and have a scribble. Just do it gently. Sumo Wrestlers can get angry.
