BANG! BANG! No.3 | Newcastle

What do you get when you put the North East's finest creative minds in one place, for one night only?


Our BANG! BANG! events are designed around creative problem solving, under a really tight deadline. Creatives are split into teams, given a problematic brief and then the clock starts. You have less than an hour to come up with a solution to the brief using any technology, advertising, world-shakingly awesome concepts and then you get to pitch your idea to the rest of the room.

Things you'll want to know.

• There will be booze.
• There will be fun.
• There will be a chance to work with brilliant people.

For students/juniors/creative minds - you'll get to speak and work with some of the regions leading Creative Directors, after they've had a beer you can start mentioning that you're looking for a job.

For agencies - you'll get to work alongside some really cool students and mention you have a placement and/or job that they might be interested in.

For anyone that likes to network, have creative fun or drink beer for £4 - just bring ideas and make new friends.



If you have any questions about the event get in touch with

Komodo Digital are a digital studio based in Newcastle, working with clients across the UK, Europe and beyond. Delivering innovative, agile digital solutions to forward-thinking organisations.
