Jason Pugh, originally from Johannesburg, started Global Village in South Africa as an event design and promotions company. He used his vast experience in the film scenic industry to apply such ethics and standards to the event design practices he grew. His experience as a DJ and producer added to his passion for creating surrounding environments to enhance the musical experience. His experience as a music video director helped nurture his understanding of music and design, and all contributed to his success as an artist, promoter and musician. In 2007, Global Village made London its new home. There, Global Village established itself as one of the forerunners in creative design for music events. By partnering up with Chicago born and European-raised Ivy Orth, whose talents as an illustration and backdrop artist, with experience using her art for advertising and commercial interior design in the USA and the UK, they were able to grow exponentially, and master their new medium of tensile fabric and multimedia installations.
