Sum Studios
Sum Studios is the rebirth of the Victorian, Grade ll listed Anns Grove School site in Heeley, Sheffield.

Curv head back to school


Back in 1992 Liam Broomhead was a first year pupil at Anns Grove school. Now he’s back as a Sum Studios tenant, in the form of design agency Curv Creative. Established in 2011, Curv offers design and advertising to clients across the country, including Yee Kwan ice cream, Reporter Magazine and DSG Motor Group.

Liam Broomhead, founder and director, said “I’d seen the school was under development and expected it to be flats, so I was really pleased to hear the plans for creative businesses – I’ve been working locally from home since setting up and when I came to see it I thought they’d done a brilliant job. It’s funny now coming into my studio and knowing how it used to look when I was a kid – it was the video room! I love the blend of old and new here, and the quality of the finish is something you notice the moment you get through the door. It’s an important step for my business which I expect to grow from here, and I’m looking forward to being part of the Sum community.”
