In this record-breakingly warm December, the 4c team decided to seek out more seasonal temperatures for our pre-Christmas away day. Along with our Design Hub colleagues we headed to the Greenacres Curling Rink near Paisley. Much hilarity ensued as 17 novice curlers ventured out onto the ice for the first time. Remember how cool, calm and collected the gold medal-winning Scottish ladies looked at the Olympics? We didn’t look like that!
After a few introductory exercises with our expert instructor we got a game started and soon enough we were all sliding around with varying degrees of competence/enthusiasm/trepidation. After a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon we left with a great deal more respect for the ancient sport of curling – so much more difficult and skilful than it looks on the TV!
And of course, no day off for the Design Hubbers would be complete without a spot of competitive Lego building!
So that’s it for 2015! A fun-filled year of improving lives with our award-winning S’up Spoon, helping Scottish Enterprise grant funded businesses design new products, growing our team, celebrating our long-term client’s achievements and re-inventing our design office.
In the first few months of 2016 we’re looking forward to working on projects in marine renewable energy and aerospace as well as continuing our work in animal welfare. And as for the rest of 2016 – who knows? Perhaps you are the person in need of our crack team of creative, practical, ‘can do’ designers & engineers? If so, get in touch!
Merry Christmas & best wishes for 2016.
