The W team launched the Aperol Spritz Social summer campaign with a mystery 321 Routemaster bus.

Five years ago, Stella Tooth, former head of publicity at Sky News, traded in PR for a paintbrush. She is now a portrait painter and founding member of The Lots Road Group of artists.

Tooth drew Geraldine Sharpe-Newton, former comms head at ITN and CNN International and current president of The Media Society.
