Canadian-born Ben Johnston is a 28-year old self-taught designer who grew up in Cape Town, South Africa. After a brief stint in industrial design, Ben started focusing on traditional graphic design, with a preference for creating typographic illustrations from scratch.
His industrial design experience gives him the ability to break the confines of 2D and 3D, enabling him to bring his designs to life. Ben’s portfolio includes a prolific selection of completed projects for renowned ad agencies and major overseas clients. But it’s his handwritten designs that people talk about the most: huge handwritten typographic murals.
Ben is currently based in Toronto as a full-time freelancer.
