The Speakers

For the first Talks event of 2021, we've managed to secure a stellar lineup of artists, designers and magicians (literally), for a jam-packed evening of talks. We have two amazing headliners, Mr Bingo and Eriol Fox, and three stellar lightning speakers, who will give quick-fire 10 minute talks each. Without further ado, let's introduce the speakers:

Mr Bingo

Mr Bingo was born in 1979. In 1980 he started drawing. There wasn’t a lot to do in Kent. Mr Bingo is called Mr Bingo because when he was 19 he won £141 at the Gala Bingo. He’s been making it rain ever since.

For those who don't know Mr Bingo, he was a commercial illustrator for 15 years, working with the top brands around the world. In 2015 he launched a Kickstarter to fund a book about his Hate Mail project, which saw him send offensive postcards to random people in return for money. The Kickstarter was not only a major success (reaching almost 400% of the funding goal), but had some of the best rewards I've ever seen including being trolled, having your washing up done, going on a date in Wetherspoons, being told to fuck off on Christmas Day and getting shitfaced on a train.

He decided around this period to never work for clients ever again and focus on being some sort of artist which he’s done ever since.

Eriol Fox

Eriol is a Design Lead who has worked in-house for 9+ years. Eriol now runs Humanitarian.design human rights-focused and humanitarian design consultancy. Before that, they worked at Ushahidi, a non-profit developing open-source, digital tools to help people with democratic processes, human rights, and crises like typhoons, earthquakes and terrorism.

Eriol is a non - binary, queer person who uses they / them pronouns and an LGBTQIA + advocate.They are deeply passionate about intersectional inclusion and promoting healthy attitudes towards mental health in the tech sector.

Caitlin Goodale

Caitlin is the Head of UX at Drest (though she likes to think of herself as more of an Experience Sommelier.) The world's first luxury fashion styling game, her team sit between the worlds of e-commerce, luxury couture and gameplay, crafting a player experience that is both beautiful and useable. Caitlin herself has worked on everything from Paint3D and Hololens at Microsoft, to Minecraft’s console editions, and is passionate about the intersection between game design, and product design and making games everyone loves to play.

Jules Mahé

Jules is an Paris-based experience designer in the field of design industrialisation. He has worked in agencies where he has set up numerous design systems for different clients. He also works in schools to guide students and teach them about current design issues. He is now a Design Advocate at zeroheight to help the design community create a better future for design.

Paavan Buddhdev

Paavan is a digital product designer at the fast-growing agency AND Digital. In his spare time he performs professionally as a magician, is working towards an Art History MA, and looks after a multitudinous amount of plants.
