Ben is head of the Design and Web departments for The Evoke Group. Everyone has a story, and it is the designer’s job to tell that story visually. Because he has his hands in both branding and web design, Ben has the unique advantage to ensure that the story remains clear and consistent between the brand and the website.
Ben doesn’t pretend to be the best designer on the planet, but he is definitely in the running for the hardest working. In Ben’s case, that means working with the client to find their voice and express that voice using exceptional design.
Design its core, is about creating. You can tell Ben loves design because he is creating all of the time. Ben co-created and illustrates Troglodyte, an Instagram based webcomic about an alien caveman and how he adapts to a modern world. Ben also produces an animated podcast on his YouTube channel titled The Talking Heads Podcast, where he interviews other artists and creators.
When Ben’s face isn’t glued to his computer screen you will find him embarrassing his son Teddy with his awesome dad jokes and impeccable taste in music. Once every blood moon you might even find Ben outdoors. On these rare occasions, Ben enjoys playing disc golf with his friends and family. If you have ever heard words come out of Ben’s mouth, you probably have heard him say how proud he is to be from Michigan, which remains true to this day.
Ben loves working for The Evoke Group because it is a place where like-minded individuals came together to make cool things and genuinely help other people grow their businesses. The tight-knit team at The Evoke Group provides Ben with a sense of security and confidence to help him grow as a designer.
