6. Ideas turn up in funny places
Presenting to a morning crowd, Mr Bingo woke everybody up with his barrel of laughs talk called ‘37 Things I’ve Learnt’. Out of a puddle of humorous predicaments and perspectives, Bingo’s thoughts on making ideas really stuck.
Stop trying too hard at your desk was amongst the advice, as creative block is not going to be relieved sat in the same old place. Instead, Bingo recommended the crowd to escape big city life and walk:
“Life goes slower when you’re walking, one day walking feels like 3 days in London” and to be open to finding the best ideas in funny places, sharing: “I often get ideas from places like the shower and cycling” (cue a quick flash illustration of a the speaker struggling on a bike in a storm, having a lightbulb moment).
Bingo suggested that creatives need to think outside of the box when it comes to business: “I like art and humour but I don’t like businesses and I don’t like money - sadly I need it”, admitted the rap dabbling illustrator, continued (a little controversially): “I hate advertising so I did the opposite, I put my prices up on Black Friday and actually got more people buying my stuff!.”
