View from the top: A charity abseil down Jurys Inn

We’ve been working with Derby Hospitals Charity for a while now and we have regular meetings at their office at the Royal Derby. Today was a little different as we took a trip to the Jurys Inn to see Vicky from the Charity team abseil down the side of the building, along with about 40 other people all of whom are braver than me.

Derby Uni Degree Show 2015

Last weekend we decided to take a trip over to Derby University to have a look at the graphic design, illustration and animation degree show. There was an interesting range of styles on show so we decided to collect together a few of our favourite pieces which you can see here.

Derby Silk Mill, Museum of Making
