I spoke to the new starters; Jack, Melodie and Loui to find out more about them and their roles at Quba.
What is your role as a new Quban?
Jack - Graphic Designer, I help bring ideas to life while trying to sprinkle a little bit of visual appeal to everything I touch.
Melodie - Project Manager, I’m here to ensure everything runs like a steam engine without too many breakdowns along the way.
Loui - Digital Account Executive, I help manage the Quba Care support retainer, so I will be the first port of call for any of our client's queries.
What has stood out to you about Quba so far?
Jack - How nice it is to be able to work on such large-scale projects, and the people here are very welcoming.
Melodie - The agency is very people focused, as soon as you walk through the door you get a feeling of what embodies a Quban employee, talented, friendly, collaborative and honest.
Loui - The atmosphere at Quba is brilliant, everyone is here to help each other, also the office is great, you can’t beat a game of FIFA on your lunch!
How would you describe yourself in three words?
Jack - Open, creative & adventurous.
Melodie - Kind, enthusiastic and chatty (my Mum used to call me Little Miss Chatterbox)
Loui - Inquisitive, outgoing & approachable
What would you say is your biggest achievement?
Jack - My biggest achievement to date is hitting over 50k online followers by showcasing illustrations (colouring in pretty much).
Melodie - Buying my house last year in Crookes.
Loui - Probably completing the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge for St Luke's hospice, extremely challenging but all for a good cause & very rewarding!
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
Jack - I like to DJ, both digital and on vinyl. Mainly house, techno & disco. Anything that gets your grooving.
Melodie - Vegan cooking, learning Japanese and dancing.
Loui - Following football & socialising with my friends.
What’s your favourite kind of music?
Jack - I listen to anything, but most of the time its hip hop. None of that mumble rap though, all about the lyrics for me.
Melodie - I like a whole smorgasbord, everything from 90s rock and electro to my indie heydays of the early 2000s. As I’ve got older, I’ve refined my palette and love a bit of old blues and jazz.
Loui - I like all different kinds of music but probably indie.
Tell us something we don't know about yourself?
Jack - I can be quite clumsy when it comes to spatial awareness, so apologies in advance.
Melodie - I teach swing dancing in my spare time, I do classes in Lindy Hop and Balboa which are two partner dances from the 1920s- 1940s.
Loui - I have had a passion for video editing ever since I was little.
