PictoBingo


The aim of this project was to bring back the fun to a game of bingo and introduce a new concept.
After analysing the modern approach to this traditional game, I noticed that the ‘bingo-lingo’ (phrases) of the game were being sidelined and in-turn removed the enjoyment and laughter.
Through linocuts I created visuals, to represent many of the phrases which have over the years become associated with the game of bingo. The ‘bingo-lingo’ comes to the forefront in my approach and visuals/phrases become more important than the numbers. My unique game named ‘PictoBingo’ allows the players to enjoy the game in the comfort of their own home, while travelling or at fundraising events.
