Watch & Wolf - Gattaca

Jelly & Gin were recently commissioned to produce a Watch & Wolf screening with a medical theme. We selected cult film classic Gattaca which has a central storyline of genetic engineering with a side helping of space travel!

The film presents a vision of a future society driven by eugenics where potential children are conceived through genetic manipulation to ensure they possess the best hereditary traits of their parents. The film centres on Vincent Freeman, played by Ethan Hawke, who was conceived outside the eugenics program and struggles to overcome genetic discrimination to realize his dream of travelling into space.

Matching moments in the film, signalled by Mister Wolf,  we served medical marshmallow swabs, Urine sample cocktails, skin flakes and Barney's Binary Star beer in the very fitting setting of The Old Anatomy Lecture Theatre in the Medical School of Edinburgh University.

A new home for Jelly & Gin

It's an exciting time for Jelly & Gin: we are moving to a new studio.

We are going to be based right in the centre of the city in one of Edinburgh's best examples of post-war brutalist architecture (our favourite kind).  It has CURVED WALLS and is situated just below Edinburgh Castle. Inspiration from all angles.

More news soon!

Wild Warriors - Lululemon Edinburgh Launch

On the 26th June 2015 Jelly & Gin worked with Canadian sportswear brand Lululemon Athletica to promote the new store launch in Edinburgh. To celebrate their arrival we collaborated with the Lululemon team to design and produce a mass yoga event in the National  Museum of Scotland. 500 yogis took part in an hour long practice led by Demelza Feltham, kicked off by a specially commissioned Call to the Mat by the talented Brave Little Note. Afterwards, the very serene crowd enjoyed a box of healthy treats, danced to the tunes of Swank'N'Jams.

CREATE:EAT:WHISKY

May 2015: Jelly & Gin transformed Gayfield Creative Spaces into an immersive whisky cocktail experience as part of Whisky Month 2015 and Year of Food and Drink.  Guests were transported to the top of a mountain, guided down and warmed up in front of a roaring fire: ending up in a surreal remote disco lounge. Specially created Haig Club whisky cocktails were served in each of the multi-sensory settings alongside matching edible items.

Creative collaboration. Part 1

Creative collaboration has been key element of the Jelly & Gin ethos from the very start. Early on a decision was made that we would aim to work with people that excel in their field. Yann and Erik are two of the creative people working with Jelly & Gin on Create:Eat:Whisky project.  They are both very talented but what makes them great collaborators is their awesome enthusiasm and seemingly unending energy.
