Hello, I’m Ben – a UK based graphic designer and artist. I’ve been running Firesnake near Oxford UK since 1997. It started life as Firesnake Concepts whilst studying towards a B.A.hons in Graphic Design, Illustration & New Media. The first freelance jobs were all about establishing brands and devising promotional materials for local businesses.
Working with renowned musician and DJ, LTJ Bukem and his record label as design manager, I had the chance to create more interactive and illustrative designs. They later became a client of mine when I launched full-time, leading to an 11 year working relationship.
My background in art came to the fore in 2012 when I was selected as a finalist in the prestigious ‘Lumen Prize’ art and technology competition. I was immensely proud to see my works tour the world and exhibit in galleries in London, NYC, Shanghai & Hong Kong. In the same year I was a finalist in the ‘Banbury Business Innovation Award’, for an interactive tourism concept. An audio mix concept became the winner of a competition on Australia’s Balance Music label, placing it alongside some of the leaders of the electronic music scene.
I then helped create animated and interactive magazine ads for high profile UK & US brands, featuring on the software maker’s website as an ambassador. After continuing to work with some of the best design & print businesses in my area, as well as portrait and school photography studios, I’m able to combine all these diverse experiences into my work with Firesnake Design. If you’re looking for an enthusiastic and knowledgable designer to help your project, get in touch to see how I can help.
