Available on iOS and Android, the Made in Derby app is an integrated part of the Made in Derby floor plaque installation (Walk of Fame) that forms a trail through Derby City centre.

Lara Croft’s floor plaque — Made of Cast Iron (from local foundry) and Mosaic. Lara’s plaque was installed during Phase ii of the Made in Derby Project.

By using the app to scan the plaques, the particular Made in Derby star will appear via augmented reality. Their story, essence or achievement takes the form of purpose-made 3D and film artworks.

In total, there are 18 plaques. For Phase One, 8 plaques were installed along Albion & Exchange Street and for Phase Two, 10 plaques were installed along Iron Gate in the Cathedral Quarter.

The idea for the Walk of Fame evolved from discussions between the Derby Telegraph, Derby City Council and local business leaders. The plaques celebrate a hero or heroine who were Made in Derby, as suggested by a public nomination.

The Made in Derby project was coined and conceived by duo Tim Clapcott and Arnold Pollock, who specialise in interactive public-realm artworks. The project is a unified cross-disciplinary artwork that brings together digital and manufacturing processes. The floor plaques were produced by Sculptor, Tim Clapcott. The entire app design and content creation was by Arnold Pollock.
