Mando launches innovative new Liverpool HQ at showcase event

Digital agency Mando launched their new, flagship headquarters at a showcase event yesterday evening (Wednesday 30th November).

Mando have relocated to the 4th floor at No.5 St Paul’s Square, from their base of nine years at the Liverpool Science Park, where they grew to over 50 staff. The office fit-out has been designed and completed by leading specialists Tétris-bluu, whose clients also include Karmarama, Spotify, Dreamworks and Buzzfeed.

Guests included many of Mando’s suppliers, neighbouring businesses around St Paul’s Square and clients like Pets at Home, Together Money, Robinsons Brewery and Cathcart Recruitment.

Guests got the opportunity to see in action the dynamic expression of the Company’s brand values of Curious; Collaborative; Momentum Makers. Exploring the new office space, guests were welcomed by a large-screen ‘Mando Bot’ in the reception area on the floor to ceiling projection wall. They then made their way to the Curious room, a Sherlock Holmes-inspired 1920s style lounge with antiques and artefacts, designed to pique one’s natural curiosity. 

Guests enjoyed food and drinks in the open plan kitchen and dining area which is central to the whole design, promoting one of the company’s values of ‘collaboration’. The tour then continued through the other meeting spaces and Studio area, which includes an informal creative breakout space, comfortable sound-proofed meeting ‘snug’ and Boardroom.

Guests also got to experience the new addition to Mando’s award-winning ‘Timesheet Fridge’ innovation, which opens on Friday afternoons after all timesheets are submitted, treating staff to a free beverage. In its new home, the Timesheet Fridge has been upgraded with an artificial intelligence-driven ‘chat bot’ enabling staff to ask questions such as, ‘Am I a beer blocker?’, ‘What’s in the fridge today?’ or even just to enquire how the fridge is feeling today.

Speaking about the new workspace, Ian Finch, Managing Director of Mando said, “I’m delighted to be able to showcase our new home to some of our most valued friends and clients. The new office environment will allow us to do even greater work, take our business forward to a new level, and is a perfect demonstration of our values.” 

“We’re also pleased that our friends at Tétris-bluu could join us for our launch evening, to experience so many people enjoying their incredible workspace design”.
