Taste Derby pack of cards - Eating Out Guide

Congratulations to all of the winners announced at the very first Derby Food and Drink Awards, held at a packed event at Derby College’s Roundhouse on 12 October.

Also launched at the ceremony was a guide to the best places to eat and drink, as nominated by Derby businesses, in the innovative form of a pack of playing cards designed by Katapult.

The fantastic range of recommendations includes places perfect for eating and meeting, formal and informal, social or business.

Featuring 48 individual venues and six neighbourhood cards, they have been made available to Marketing Derby Bondholders and are also available from the Tourist Information Centre in the Market Place.

Are you creative? You are creative!

We could not have asked for better weather for our Marketing Derby Bondholder event in the newly re-landscaped Katapult garden this morning. With the marquee up and the bacon butties going down nicely, we welcomed a host of people from various businesses and organisations across the city.

Wanting to give our audience an insight into some of the creative thinking techniques we employ, we issued a straightforward brief and organised a few activites to get everyone involved. Each group responded brilliantly and rose to the challenge, seemingly inspired by the Katapult team’s donning of glittery head boppers for ’The Martians have landed’, an exercise designed to stimulate a visual response to the brief.

We hope everyone who attended enjoyed their morning with us. We really enjoyed speaking to everyone, giving them an insight into what we do and putting them in touch with their creative side (!). As we did at the event, we’ll leave the final word to Pablo Picasso: ‘Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.’
