Benjamin Buddy, is a one-man nice guy design and art studio by myself, Ben. I offer apparel consultation, branding, illustration, and print design.
I was born and raised in the Bay Area, California, but spent the last few years living and working in Honolulu, HI. I studied graphic design at the University of San Francisco. I have eight years + experience designing at creative agencies, start-ups, apparel companies and starting my own projects.
I'm an evening fine art painter, small time art curator, and founder of my beloved clothing brand. I enjoy working in between both worlds of art and design.
Since my short stay in Hawaii, I'm currently living back in the Bay working as an Art Director at Instagram. I apologize but I am no longer accepting freelance work. Regardless, please feel free to drop me a note. Thanks for looking.
