These include 3Sixty, Bray Leino, Zone and Potato
Through his experience at agencies, Ben has worked across many sectors such as legal, transport infrastructure, technology, entertainment and automotive. This has led to involvement in a wide range of projects, including internal tools such as events planning platforms; interactive gaming utilising augmented reality and e-commerce.
