Benjamin Miles

INTERACTIVE CREATIVE DIRECTOR

Over the last 10+ years I’ve been a partner in developing and growing creative companies. I’ve directed high-profile campaigns for major brands and artists, held lead creative roles across a spectrum of platforms, and have been a part of crafting numerous activations, interactive sites, web applications, and HTML5 games.

MY MANIFESTO

I believe in collaboration, exploration and creative problem solving through technology, design, art and music. Great projects tell a story with every pixel, pattern, and process. It's not about being right, it's about making progress.
