Ben is a creative director at Morse Project, a startup based in San Francisco. His thirteen years of experience span working within teams large and small, both in-house and consultancy, and from startups to corporate behemoths. Ben has worked on projects with many different areas of focus, beginning on the web but expanding to include mobile, brand, application, strategy, product and service. Prior to joining Morse, Ben has spent time at Method, Adaptive Path, IDEO, Twitter, Samsung, UK-based service design pioneers live|work, and Oyster Partners, a big British web agency you'd probably only remember if you still have the scars from the first dot bomb.
