Benny Hinman

Benny believes in the power of big ideas, wild ambition, and trying to do things differently – sometimes really differently. He relishes in finding original solutions and perspectives to communication and design problems. By day he works as a brand designer for DesignStudio where he works on a diverse range of high profile brands around the world.

Through his work, he likes to explore the peculiar, beautiful, unexpected, charming, and clever. Benny is all about creating crafted, emotion-driven work that resonates with audiences and does so by bringing to the table a wide range of creative disciplines such as graphic design, illustration, copywriting, art direction and photography.

I love how design can impact perceptions and culture.

Why do you teach?

I love to be a champion of ideas and love helping people shoot for the stars.

Tell us about your design career outside of Shillington.

As a brand designer, no two days are the same. Each project and client present a new challenge and opportunity. Some days I’m deep into creating toolkits and guidelines, others I’m in immersion workshops learning all about how their business works.

What or who are you loving right now?

Tacos, I always love tacos.

If you were a typeface, what would you be?

Gooper! In a friendly shape of yellow or peach.

What’s your favourite blog?

Not a design blog per se, but I shamelessly love HYPEBEAST. I love that it covers all things culture.
