  • Design & Friction: Crafting Emotional Experiences


A hands-on creative leader with over fifteen years of experience, Ben manages Stink Studios New York’s UX, design, copy and motion teams and sits across all client engagements. Previously, he spent time at some of the world’s top advertising agencies and digital studios, including Wieden+Kennedy, B-Reel, Mother, R/GA and 72andSunny, building a body of work that stretches from conceptually-led film storytelling to digital products and experiences.

In addition to his projects as a creative director, Ben is also an accomplished filmmaker, having helmed productions for Twitter, Cole Haan, The Washington Post and top independent record labels.

His work has been recognised with numerous industry awards (including an Emmy nomination) and is included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art.
