About me

Hi, I'm Benja. My background is in design but my passion is for brand strategy, conceptual thinking, branding and copywriting. I'm a creative all-rounder and I'm never happier than when I'm devising a key proposition or writing a witty campaign headline. I'm an ambitious, conceptual and award-winning creative with over 16 years of experience in the industry. Most recently I was Creative Director at Ferrier Pearce Creative Group, a Design Week top 30 independent creative agency. My experience both agency and client-side has enabled me to collaborate well with people from a diverse range of specialisms. I'm a confident, articulate and personable communicator with strong presentation skills. My style is naturally collaborative and I enjoy problem-solving both alone and with others. I have considerable experience in branding, brand strategy and brand guardianship and with that a relentless desire to retain and improve standards, both in creativity and design, but also in efficiency and process. I’m a strategic, conceptually-led thinker who enjoys being challenged. My focus has always been on the ‘big idea’. But this doesn't mean I don't focus on the details. I am experienced at overseeing projects through from inception to completion, dealing with all of the usual obstacles that occur as part of that process. I’m a natural mentor and love to inspire, nurture and develop those in my team. For me, mentorship is by far the most rewarding aspect of any job – I thrive on helping others to develop in the hope that they may look back one day and remember that I had an impact on their lives.
