The last week of a packed year was crowned by getting our AV setup finished in the auditorium. We marked this occasion with a family film afternoon on Saturday. Fruit shoots, popcorn and plenty of space to run around, plus surround sound and a huge screen showing of Arthur Christmas kept the Clearleft nippers enthralled whilst their parents had a Christmas glass of wine.

In other news, Andy P, Rich, Jess and Mark met with NBC UK on Monday. We're looking forward to starting this exciting project in the New Year.

Viv finished an Axure prototype for Silverback 3 and completed the last touches for the Ladies that UX Brighton event on 28th January, organised together with Emma from Hatch. 20 tickets gone and counting!

James Box and James Bates were meeting and planning with new clients Nordea Bank. January sees them camping out in Copenhagen for a fortnight. And we aren't at all jealous. No.

Rich was usability testing our prototype at Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. As usual, it was fascinating seeing actual users use our designs and a few small surprises were thrown up, but the new design seemed to work really well.

Jess was working on planning the design phase of Wellcome pathways project and also NBC.

Ant has been talking to some really interesting potential clients in London, Manchester and New York, and once again finding himself getting late trains home from London (that's his story and he's sticking to it).

Finally, on a sadder note, we were blown away by our amazing interns, who gave their final presentation this week. We're gonna really miss their hive of activity upstairs in 2014.

Happy Christmas everyone x
