I am an artist and a designer with a passion to create product, build brands, launch campaigns, and align artistry with innovation. I love pixels, paint and technology.
Currently I am designing product for a private label brand in Irvine, running freelance design ventures out of my studio in Corona Del Mar, and developing creative strategy for a non-profit that is close to my heart. Beyond that I am designing a monument for the City of Newport Beach, which may be the most meaningful piece of artwork that I will ever create. #raisupforben
Outside of work I love spending time with my friends and family. I am blessed to be married to a beautiful woman who supports my creative ambitions. We have two amazing little boys together and we currently reside in Corona Del Mar, Ca.
Brand & Identity
I develop brand identity systems for businesses of all sizes, from startups to longstanding, established brands. My capabilities span the entire process from early development to final execution. In addition to brand assets, I have comprehensive experience in developing brand application guidelines and documentation.
Digital Design & Development
In addition to my design capabilities, I also offer integrated digital design and development. My digital work is informed by a traditional design skillset but also enhanced by an in-depth understand of digital platforms. My experience is diverse and covers responsive web development, user interface design, applications, e-commerce and digital publications. I pride myself on the ability to fully execute our design and creative direction in the digital medium.
Print & Publication Design
With extensive experience designing periodicals, catalogs and collateral, print-based publication has always been an integral part of my work. Informed by an in-depth knowledge of printing and production processes, I am able to deliver print-based work of the highest possible calibre.
With over a decade of experience working on a wide range of client-facing projects, I've developed the ability to not only communicate through design, but also through the power of developing strong relationships.
