Bingo in the house

If you’ve ever been lucky enough to hear Mr Bingo talk about his work and his career – and you found yourself uninspired by the experience – then a life in a creative agency clearly isn’t for you.

That’s one thing our recent Bloom Discovery Day told us. In fact, the day told us a lot about ourselves and each other.

The whole premise was to take some time out from work and make a little space to do something as a team. A bit of a company update, something to eat, a few drinks and some inspiration to remind ourselves how important it is to keep discovering.

After setting the scene we hit Leeds city centre in teams on a treasure hunt. The undoubted highlight of which was a ‘what’s the best thing you can buy for a fiver’ challenge. Here’s the winning purchase.

Then Mr Bingo stole the show. For the uninitiated, Mr Bingo is part genius, part enigma – all wrapped up in a load of swearing. A world-renowned illustrator and artist, and the man responsible for one of the most brilliant Kickstarter projects ever.

He also knows how to tell a story, and his tales of non-conformism, mis-adventure and generally creating amazing work that amuses himself are a wonder to behold. And although everyone took something different from his talk, no one has been quite the same since.

Discovery can do that to you.
