Bio

Ben is living proof that true creative talent has no borders. Now based in Nelson, NZ, Ben continues to work with top agencies all over Australasia, producing work of an international standard.

 

His enduring campaign for Tourism Tasmania perfectly frames the promise of a true escape. And his ‘First Dance’ work for Apple beautifully captured a historic cultural shift.

 

From 121 animation projects in Amsterdam to 13 same-sex weddings in 6 days for Apple, Ben has always been prolific. His energy and passion drive projects forward, and his positive attitude keeps clients coming back for more.

 

Ben’s talent for ideas and the ability to make brands stand out has been recognised as both a judge for AWARD and a lecturer at AWARD School. (His own award-winning run began as a student, so he’s proud to help refill the funnel.)

 

Continuing his own creative development, Ben has recently expanded into design and illustration work with immediate success. He’s helped create two new products for big Aussie brewery Carlton & United, as well as a fresh new branding project for Dancing Sands Distillery.

 

Whether it’s an agency booking or working directly with clients, Ben brings a unique perspective and experience that’s hard to top. For nearly two decades, Ben has applied his creative touch to leading brands like ALDI, Canon, PepsiCo, Samsung, Vodafone, and Uber.


Now he’s keen to grow his New Zealand client base and help Kiwi brands turn bright ideas, into business success. He’s available for ad concepts, art direction, or pitch-winning creative input, or to bring your next graphic or packaging design brief to life.
