About his Lecture & Workshop

It might entail some common sense, but streamlining your life isn't easy. It's also never too late to learn. The reward is more time with people and things you love, and more space for creative bliss. Over the past several years, Ben has shared his mantra “Live Slow. Make Fast.” nationwide with those lucky enough to see him at lectures and conferences like Creative South 2014 and the Circles Conference. In his lecture, learn how this core belief has OneFastBuffalo thriving, making things they love and delighting clients through surprising collaborations. Re-think what’s important, and the value of an Airstream trailer. This lecture is free to the public courtesy of AIGA Philly & Pipeline Philadelphia. Fresh coffee and pastries will be provided.

In his "Designtrepreneur" workshop, Ben will illustrate a roadmap to build your ideas into successful brands. This is a class for designers looking for a more self-sustaining style of work that yields freedom and independence.
