Hey there, welcome!

My name is Ben and I create product for Bumble Snapchat in LA.

 

This is my porfolio website, so get in touch if you want to talk or just view my projects here.
Me

I'm a product design lead with six years experience in creating consumer-facing, mission-led products.

After graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2013 I help co-found and build a UK Top 5 Social app called Yubl, raising over £15 million in the process.

From there, I worked with Whitney Wolfe Herd and her team at Bumble to end misogyny and empower women to make the first move, taking over design responsibilities from the founding CPO.

In my latest move, I've up sticks to move from London to Los Angeles to help create product at Snapchat.

My roles have put me across all levels of product; from the definition of vision and strategic goals with the heads of business to ideating creative UX and UI outcomes that balance product, development, marketing and user needs.

I am hugely passionate about people, teams and processes, and have previously helped build a team of 75 at Yubl and more recently been actively involved in transforming how Bumble creates product into the future.
