Ben is a graphic designer with illustrative tendencies; born, raised and based in the glamorous West Midlands. In 2011 he graduated with a First in Graphic Design from Staffordshire University, and whilst studying won a D&AD Best New Blood award and was the first student from the course to be awarded an ISTD Membership for typographic excellence.

Recently graduated, and disillusioned by the amount of unpaid internships on offer, Ben set up as a freelancer to try and create a job rather than wait for one. Six years later he is frequently defying normal sleep patterns to serve a range of publishing and entertainment marketing clients in London, Berlin and Los Angeles.

If you think there's a project Ben might be able to help you with, please don't hesitate to get in touch — info@benanslow.com
