On opening door number seven of the advent calendar this morning and quickly shoving the little chocolate reindeer in my mouth before anyone else can pinch it, I realised that there are only 18 days left until Christmas!

If, like us, Christmas has crept up on you all of a sudden, don’t panic. Our Christmas in Derby website has gone live and it covers just about everything you need to know about the city’s festive period, from shop opening hours to what’s on in and around Derby.

Visit www.christmasinderby.com and don’t let Christmas pull a fast one on you!


We are officially on the count down to Christmas, which, for most people means, 23 shopping days left until the big day!

If you’ve been putting in some early Christmas shopping time (smart move), then you’ve probably seen some of our Christmas campaign dotted around Derby city centre.

We were so excited to win the tender for Marketing Derby’s Christmas campaign earlier this year and it’s a thrill to see our work both large and small scale throughout the city.

Keep an eye out for our work and tell us what you think.

Kiss Design has teamed up with the Derby and District RSPCA to give the charity’s website a new lease of life.

The Kiss Design team is working closely with the Derby RSPCA to re-structure and re-vamp the website, in a bid to increase the number of visits to the site and, ultimately, re-home as many animals as possible.

Creative Director at Kiss Design, Terry Summerfield not only donating his creative talents to the charity, he is also donating his time and has become a volunteer dog walker for the shelter on Abbey Street.
