We love all things PR, here at Bloomin’ Creative. But we’re proud of our roots, and our roots are in journalism.

Client News – The Crossing Point Café goes for gold at prestigious national awards

We had a really, really, really proud moment recently. Our client, The Crossing Point Cafe, won the gold award for ‘Independent Café of the Year’ at the Café Life Awards.
