Curtis Roberts' Sketchbook

Like so many people, I started drawing at a young age and for purely recreational purposes. I think if there is a style to my sketches, it dates back to those early years and my affinity for Marvel Comics.

Curtis Roberts is Design Principal and co-owner at fd2s.

Curtis Roberts thinks better branding and wayfinding (when and where appropriate) = a better, more engaging experience.

Curtis was born in Memphis, TN, but grew up in the thriving Coastal Bend metropolis of Beeville, TX (pop. 14, 586). Upon graduating with a bachelor’s degree from The University of Texas at Austin’s School of Architecture, he began working with fd2s as a design intern. He now serves as the firm’s design principal and is co-owner.

Founded in 1997 by cancer survivor and champion cyclist Lance Armstrong, the Lance Armstrong Foundation has raised more than $260 million for the fight against cancer. The organization’s new headquarters facility, a renovation of the 30,000-sq.-ft. Gulf Paper warehouse in East Austin, houses foundation staff and also supports the survivorship mission by providing space for programs and activities.

With more than 40 member institutions located on a densely developed 800-acre site, the Texas Medical Center is the world’s largest medical center. And with more than 12 miles of streets and roadways—and approximately 43,000 parking spaces in dozens of parking garages and surface lots—it presents some significant wayfinding challenges.

fd2s was founded in 1985
Founding principal Steven Stamper and fellow principal Curtis Roberts, lead a talented team of designers, strategists, and project managers. For more than 30 years the firm has been creating wayfinding programs, donor recognition exhibits, and experiential graphics that change the way people experience the world around them.
