Chief Creative Officer, Associate Partner
Ben joined Butchershop in 2015. Under his leadership, the agency has doubled its creative department, added services and capabilities, and moved into new B2C and B2B verticals. His background spans advertising, brand consulting, and design, in both strategic and creative posts. The integration is a distinguishing mark of Butchershop’s approach to crafting brands and experiences.
As head of creative, Ben partners with our clients to help them change trajectories, launch businesses, and find new customers. He’s helped Microsoft reach startups, Oculus explore social VR, At-bay define a new category, Zenefits get their reputation back, Good Eggs buck the marketing cliches targeted at moms, and Lightspeed act the part of a culture-shaping VC firm. His work has been recognized by numerous awards in advertising and communication design, including The One Show, Communication Arts, TDC, Drum, Telly and others.
Prior to Butchershop, he was Copy Director at Office when the agency received the Cooper Hewitt National Design Award. While there, he prepped the Whole Foods brand for Amazon’s acquisition and overhauled the Star Wars’ brand voice for the franchise’s reboot under Disney. He also developed content series for award-winning kids brand Wee Society, now published in book form through Penguin Random House.
Ben loves our crew’s special combo of head and heart. “The crew is thoughtful with strategy but audacious with creativity. People here talk about emerging technology and the latest Virgil drop. Data science and DJs. SaaS and street fashion. I’ll drink that cocktail.”
