Lured to Delaware by the promise of quiet country roads for cycling and an 8 by 12 Chandler and Price, Ben is the most recent midwesten transplant to House Industries. Once arrived he underwent rigorous training to whittle down his innate midwestern friendliness to a sharp point of East Coast wit. Born in Columbus, Indiana, Ben has lived in Nigeria, Wisconsin, England, and most recently Saint Louis, Missouri. Compelled by an obsession with letters, he studied and received a MA in Typeface design from the University of Reading, England. He and his wife Ida McCall live just a block down from the original Brand Design studio in downtown Wilmington. Along with Ken, he also corrupts the minds of students at Maryland Institute, College of Art.
