I’m Ben Gibbons, a multi-disciplinary designer working across brand identity, print and digital. Currently based at an advertising agency in Farringdon, London, I strive to create work that is not only beautiful, but has a purpose.





Profile

        I truly believe in the importance of simple and effective design. I first developed this passion when studying product design, learning how to turn original concepts into work that looks beautiful, but also serves a functional purpose.
My career began at the age of 16, when I joined the ad agency Havas London as an Apprentice Designer.

I’ve since worked at leading advertising agencies in London for over five years, creating both international and national campaigns across all touchpoints for clients such as Asics, Audible, Carlsberg, Citroën, Gumtree and Rightmove among many others.

Although I enjoy working across a range of digital and traditional projects, the discipline I have the strongest passion for is branding.

This has allowed me to view design from a wider perspective; to consider not only aesthetics, but how to create broader design systems for other people to use, setting out the rules for the future. I also have a strong interest in motion design.
