Ben Middleton

Chief Creative Officer and Founder, Creature

Ben wanted to work in advertising and to run his own agency ever since he first picked up a pencil. Growing up on the mean streets of Guildford, he got his wish straight out of university after he and Stu nabbed a coveted role at multiple-agency-of-the-year, Mother. They spent the better part of the next decade there, working (and winning awards) on pretty much every client in the building, before ripping the agency’s creative heart out when they left to set up Creature in 2011. Ben’s never happier than when he’s riding a wave of intelligent misbehaviour to create work that real people can’t help but care about; and when he’s watching Dulwich Hamlet with his two daughters.
