About Benjamin

I am a Sydney based Digital Designer, Art Director & foosball enthusiast. Since picking up my first Alan Fletcher book over 8 years ago, I have worked to remain a thinker foremost, and a designer second, whether the project calls for an intuitive user experience or poetic copy.

I have been afforded the privilege of learning from and working with some of Australia's leading creative minds and am eager to leave my own mark on the creative industry.
