[Creative Direction & Execution]
With a combined 35 years as award winning* nightclub operators, pub entrepreneurs and DJs, Jaime and Michael have cultivated a firm grip on the zeitgeist.
From identifying emerging trends and styles, and an innate sense of what makes a venue work, the pair has worked their magic on over 25 venues since embarking on their creative collaboration in 1996.
Masters at taking an idea and transforming it into functional, successful reality, Jaime and Michael have owned, renovated and operated their own businesses under the Drink’n’Dine moniker and now consult to other businesses to help them do the same.
From design, renovation, construction and operations, Jaime and Michael’s first hand experience at every stage in the process of development and implementation of hospitality venues has been proven time and time again.
Aesthetic may not be everything in life, but when it comes to creating a restaurant, bar or nightclub, it’s crucial.
International Worldwide considers great design at the centre of any solid venue concept and the businesses ability to succeed. Having worked on projects ranging from shoestring to big budget, we believe that great design can be achieved no matter what the brief or creative challenge.
[Food & Beverage]
Once the stage is set, it’s up to food and beverage to take the spotlight and show people a good time. Creating adventurous, interactive and slightly off the wall drinking and dining experiences are at the heart of what attracts new customers and breeds loyalty.
The team work with fearless culinary talent who are committed to creating high quality offerings. Whether it’s high calibre dining or hands-on casual eating, the experience may be influenced by anything from Mexican street food, Jamaican feasts, American BBQ, or a blend of any of the above.
Ever tried hanging out with a group of friends in a venue without music? It just doesn’t work.
The last piece of the atmosphere bubble is music and whether it’s a feature or just bubbling below the surface, it can transform the mood of the room, or kill it entirely. But it’s ok – this is what we do. International Worldwide came together because of the tunes and music will continue to hold a special place in our hearts. From understanding venue acoustics to what music it takes to complete the picture, we’re on it.
[Branding & Design]
Integral to any venue is its ability to create a brand. From logos to menus, coasters to websites, strong graphic design is central to establishing a clear brand for your venue.
It’s what ties the whole thing together into a cohesive and attractive package. IW have spent years creating design experiences that culminate in original, attention grabbing and most of all effective design.
