What I Do

With a keen eye for design and proactive ambition, Curtis is a valuable asset to the design team. His background as a self-employed designer saw him create cover art, logos and posters for the music industry. As an Apprentice, he’ll be taking on board the world of Commerce, aiding the larger team with internal and external projects.

A Little More.

What made you apply for a job with 5874?

I had been working as a freelance Graphic Designer over lockdown and wanted to take on an apprenticeship to hone my skills. I knew a career at 58 would be a great opportunity to learn about design and the Commerce industry.

What's your favourite thing about working here?

My favourite thing about working here is the team, there's a great deal of expertise in our team and I have already learnt a lot from being here.

In your role, what do you most enjoy and what area do you feel you excel in?

Within my role I most enjoy building a brand up from the bottom up to create something interesting across multiple channels.

What would you say is your favourite project you've worked on?

My favourite project I have worked on so far is Johnnie Walker. I enjoyed working with such a big brand and seeing the site come to life.

Where do you see yourself career-wise in 5 years?

In 5 years I see myself being a more knowledgeable Designer with some more experience at 58 under my belt. I also hope to take more of a lead role on some client-facing work as my skills as a Designer progress.

Who or what inspires you?

I find Birmingham very inspiring, there's a really good culture here and the city has a lot to offer in terms of art, music and of course food.

Got any pets?

I have an 11 old Kings Charles/Bichon Frise cross who still looks like a puppy, she's very cute but won't give you any peace if you're eating something.

Tell us a little bit about yourself / family / hobbies

Outside of work I'm a big music fan and like to spend my weekends listening to music and going to gigs, I also play bass guitar in a band. When I'm not designing or doing something musical you can catch me at Villa Park.

What's the best advice you've ever heard/been given?

Celebrate small victories.
