Hi! I’m Ben Simonsen, a passionate Visual Artist, Designer, Art Director, & all around Creative. I’ve been developing artwork for well over nineteen years.
I’ve been fortunate to collaborate with extremely talented people in the development of Video Games, TV Ads, Toys, Advertising Campaigns, UI/UX Experiences, Print & Web, Editorial Publications, Live Events, and Theme Park designs. Now, I’d love to do the same with you.
