A freelancer founded on the principles of Honesty, Clarity, Simplicity.
Ben Loka is a designer, photographer, writer and creative living in London. Renown for his humorous online video blogs, he quickly gained a viewership of over 4 million with a loyal following on YouTube. With a BA (hons) in English Language & Linguistics Ben has worked as a magazine editor and is an experienced designer of 7 years, progressively pairing together this fusion of talents to produce eye-catching marketing materials and consistent branding across both digital and print platforms. He is a former head of design at DMG Media and currently available for freelance projects.
Ben lived as a monk for 3 years, an experience that demanded deep focus, patience and introspection, but one that ultimately would equip him with the mindful vision to see his calling in life. To make websites about himself.
He has worked with small businesses, corporations, nonprofits, musicians and more. A keen photographer of weddings, portraits, food and anything that doesn’t move around too quickly. Most recently in 2016-17 Ben worked extensively on the app ‘Rise’ which yielded an impressive 10’000 downloads in it’s first few months. As well as designing the interface, this was also an opportunity to refine and expand his skills in video production, creating an innovative and visually enthralling collection of online courses.
When he’s not taking photographs, designing or meditating, Ben also enjoys writing about himself in the third person.
