About me.

I'm a 38 year old award-winning Creative Director, Web & Graphic Designer based in Niagara, Ontario, Canada. 

I love everything about clean, simple design and have always strived to find a strong balance when using the principles of minimalist design while pushing a message.

I’ve been working as a freelance designer since 2006, gaining invaluable knowledge working alongside clients such as Canada’s former Prime Minister Stephen J. Harper, Shark Tanks’ Kevin O’Leary, Greenfield Global, Toronto Global, Capstone Mining Corp, Canadian National Railway and Aphria Medical Marijuana & Cannabis Oil Canada.

Ben has a passion for great design and creates beautiful work. It's what makes him a successful graphic designer. But the reason I continue to hire him to produce creative for my events, is because of his work ethic. He's fast, hard-working, honest, able to take direction, and always available to make changes in real time. He is an absolute pleasure to work with!

Ben has been our ‘go to’ designer for public affairs materials for the past decade. He's always been able to help turn complex information into a visual image that gets our client’s message across quickly and persuasively to our target audience; helping us meet incredibly tight deadlines when circumstances demanded it. I highly recommend him (but please don’t take up too much of his time because we still need him!)
