Meet mini-Dan

Friday, October 26th, 2012


A few of us got to have a cuddle with dinky Dylan, our designer Dan and wife Sarah’s new addition when he was officially introduced to the team yesterday. Look at all that hair!

Introducing Susan, our new office manager

Friday, October 19th, 2012


We’re very pleased to introduce our new Office Manager, Susan Larmour. With more than fifteen years administration and property management experience, Susan is the queen of organised.

To help you get to know Susan better, we asked her a few questions:

Q: If you weren’t ensuring the smooth running of the Katapult studio what would you be doing?
A: I’d love to run my own cat sanctuary actually. I’d like to spend more time travelling too.

Q: What’s the last thing you laughed out loud at?
A: A man who broke into a breakdance at a pub I was in last week. It was very random.

Q: What’s the first single you ever bought?
A: Kim Wilde, Kids in America.

Q: What in your opinion is the greatest invention of all time?
A: The internet…or the dusting brush on my Dyson but that’s sad isn’t it? (It actually sounds very useful)

Q: What are you most looking forward to about working at Katapult?
A: Having a varied job role where every day is different and feeling appreciated by the team.

Q: Do you have a favourite piece of design?
A: My Dyson! (Susan then proceeds to tell us all about the attachment you can get for vacuuming your dog).

Q:What’s your biggest guilty pleasure?
A: Ant & Dec. If they’re on TV, I’ll be watching.

Susan will now be the main point of contact for accounts and office enquiries and you can contact her on
