Katapult welcomes new trio of specialist talent
International leisure and attractions design agency, Katapult, has expanded its team, facilitating new growth by welcoming more specialist skills to the company. The team now includes Andy Charlton, Richard Ninness and Declan O’Mara.
Richard Ninness joins as technical project manager, and brings experience from Picsolve where he worked on major projects at some of the biggest attractions in the UK and Europe, and his time as an engineer.
Andy Charlton, Katapult’s new 3D designer, has spent over 15 years in architectural and automotive studios creating 3D computer visualisations. Andy likes to stay at the forefront of technology developments and will use all his experience and skills to communicate great guest experience ideas to clients through 3D visualisation.
The newest addition to the team, Declan O’Mara, aka Deadskull, is a multimedia artist specialising in 3D Projection Mapping, Photorealistic 3D Animation, and immersive live Performances. He has an extensive portfolio within the music industry creating content with millions of views. Dec has toured North America, Canada, and Russia with his live show ‘Invasion:Live’ and has worked with the likes of Skrillex, Steve Aoki, Hospital Records, OWSLA, Dim Mak and many more.
“It is important for us to build the specialist skills on our team that the leisure industry really needs. Our recent project wins, including Merlin Entertainments and Cartoon Network, coupled with our plans for growth, means we need the best and brightest talent available. We’re really excited to see where these new people will take us!”
