The former De Montfort graduate – a First in Graphic Design and Illustration, since you ask – also claimed the D&AD (Design & Art Direction) Best New Blood award in 2010.

When Ben isn’t busy conquering the world of design and graphics, he can be found following the progress of Warwickshire County Cricket Club. But let’s not hold that against him.

IDEAL ROAD TRIP COMPANIONS: Alan Fletcher, AKA Dr Karl Kennedy from Neighbours, along with Andrew Flintoff for the cricket chat and photographer Martin Parr for the artistic contribution.

FUN FACT: Such is Ben’s affection for a certain long-running Australian soap that he managed to squeeze in a night at a Neighbours Trivia Night while visiting his brother down under. And as luck might have it ‘Dr Karl’ was performing a set with his band Right Prescription. Ben’s night wasn’t wasted – he managed to grab a quick moment with his hero after the show.

LEADER, IN 3 WORDS: Personal, thoughtful, creative.
