Red Stripe launched a unique campaign… ‘Make with a Red Stripe‘ with sound artist Yuri Suzuki, in collaboration with DJ Al Fingerssinger/songwriter Gappy Ranks and designer Matthew Kneebone they created a series of cultural projects cel­ebrating the DIY culture of the brand’s Jamaican roots.

Starting with the cans partly collected at this year’s Notting Hill carnival….
