Hey, I’m Ben! I’m a Multi-disciplinary Designer living in London. By day I work as a designer in a design studio called ‘Angel London’ within the heart of Shoreditch, London working on projects for Coke, Jack Daniels, Cartoon Network etc. However, by night I work across a whole range of passion & freelance projects covering motion & animation, branding, print, editorial, illustration & digital, for a broad demographic of clients.

I started off my career after graduating at the design studio ‘onedotzero’ where I worked on an array of projects. Most notably the Nike World Basketball Festival. Afterwards I moved into the motion design an animation industry at an agency called ‘Swhype’ (Pronounced Swipe) where I worked my way up into a senior position conceptualising and creating work for companies such as John Lewis, The White Company and the social media platform ‘Vero’.

In my own time I’ve co-founded a part time studio called Matter No Matter creating work for non-profits, charities and causes which raise positive awareness around issues in the world. This includes animation work for the mens mental health charity C.A.L.M (Campaign Against Living Miserably), ‘City Harvest’ who aims to reduce foot wastage around the world, ‘Unpackaged’, a start up which is trying to reduce plastic packaging and consumption and our own self initiated projects, most recently we produced our own short film on a tiny budget of £70, which attempts to bring attention to anti gun legislation within the US.

Along side this I also help to run a 17,000 member online community called ‘The Designers League’, which acts as a safe environment for creatives of all abilities to showcase their work, learn, receive feedback and collaborate. Make sure to join! We’re always looking to help creatives out however we can regardless of what stage they are at in their career, or design journey. If you ever need advice, or just want to meet for a tea, coffee, beer or a game of table tennis then get in touch.
