We got the details on Ben’s journey into the creative world from starting off in animation and getting his break with Skint Records to his current freelance career. Ben gives us an insight into how a moment at a Flaming Lips concert inspired the use of bubbles in his early work, the influence of a Go Team! track and how music still inspires his work today.

We asked Ben how he feels creating works for good causes and his sold out Back to the Future print for Art V Cancer. Ben also gives us an insight into the process behind Fluid Animals, how they started and how he got in trouble for not doing a calendar this year! Alongside Ben’s illustration work he is also one half of Huddle Formation and B-Goods with his wife Fi.

Ben treats us to an insight into what to expect from them both in the year ahead before answering the difficult question of where he sees the future of design. We also got a chance to ask Ben what a playlist to accompany his career would consist of and he has very kindly put together a Soundcloud playlist to go with his answer. You can check it out here, its’ a perfect upbeat studio soundtrack.
