I'm Ben, a multidisciplinary designer based in  Staffordshire, UK.
As an award-winning graphic designer, illustrator, and photographer, I have a passion for creating visually stunning and user-friendly designs that help businesses stand out and achieve their goals. 
Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to work with a variety of amazing clients, including design studios, B2B/B2C brands, and startups. I have experience working on a wide range of projects from creating brand identities for small businesses, laying out editorial design for tech giants to designing event shows all over the world. 
I started my business on the basis of being open and honest in how I work. You as the client are kept informed but not overwhelmed through the project. 
My pricing is as transparent and straightforward—daily rates without any unnecessary markups. 
The value I bring is built upon over 24 years of experience as an award-winning creative.

Kind Words
Ben is a true professional. For me, running a branding consultancy, I need to know that version control and client amends are all taken care off and revised within the brand guidelines. Ben ensures we are always up-to-date, working on the same page and moving forwards.
Nic Rickets, 1st Objective
l've known Ben for a number of years and have recently introduced him to a number of my clients. The feedback to date has been excellent - as one client said to me "The one difference is that Ben delivers the same high levels of service found in the most respected London agencies, but without the huge price tag!" As well as this and from a creative point of view, I will certainly continue to recommend him.
Simon Cope, Marketer
I first worked with Ben early into a new role and when tasked with a large first project. I needed some existing resources to be rebranded, others' copy tweaked and rebranded and some new, created from scratch. 
I was impressed how quickly Ben understood a difficult product and complex brief and found him to be incredibly creative throughout; the first priority when looking for a graphic designer. 
More than that, though, I appreciated us working on things in a logical order, minimising the need for extra work. Having said that and, as always seems to be the case in business, there were still lots of amends! Thankfully Ben was always more than willing, never complained at my incessant emails and most importantly, was FAST to respond. I wouldn't hesitate to work with Ben again or recommend him to others.
