My name is Ben.I am an art director and designer, currently hanging around the north of England.

I have spent the last 8 years working at creative agencies and brands. This has led me to work with futsal players in Lisbon and 3D printed walnuts in London. What a strange world we live in.

Most recently I have been leading the brand design team at Umbro, across campaigns and the launch of global marketing materials. That all sounds very serious but essentially it has meant solving problems, managing projects and making things.

To sum up, check out my projects and read more about me below and If you would like to work together or chat through some upcoming projects drop me a line, in any of the usual ways.


That's all well and good but what can you do?

Great question. The short answer is… a lot.

Having worked at both agencies and brands I feel I bring the best of both worlds. Conceptual thinking and creative strategy but with a focus on delivering results and ultimately to sell a product or tell a story.

In terms of skills, I can create conceptual creative and marketing campaigns. Design for digital, retail, packaging and print. Art direct or shoot photography and film. Edit video and create animations. Manage budgets and help with production. Basically, I am a bit of an all-rounder.

Numerous Other Roles

Various / The rest of my life

I used to sell VW cars in a non-sleazy way. I also held down a part-time job as a designer throughout my time at university. Please don't hire me based on these things... it was a long time ago.
