Get To Know Me:

Who is Benjamin Howes?

HDS-Ben-3.png

I was born in Lancaster, Ohio a year before the Berlin Wall came down.  The son of naturalist and a graphic designer, I was homeschooled and raised right outside the woods where I learned to draw, think, play music, and create.

After graduating from Ohio University, I moved to Columbus to take a job with a small software company.  Ever since then I have been honing my craft and working with some of the coolest cats in town.  I spent the last two years in a senior design role that also saw me overseeing project management and environment production duties.  Now I'm independent and creating for people and brands I love. 

My wife Perrie and I own a home in the Forest Park neighborhood of Columbus.  We enjoy eating all over the city as well as running, cycling, and hiking. I also play bass and guitar and am always building my record collection. We also hired a Cockapoo to be our guard dog. Her name is Juniper.
