Dear Ben & Frank

What designers do you look up to the most?

Question Submitted by Anonymous

Ben SaysFrom a historical perspective I admire the work done by people like Rudolf Modley, Lester Beall, Alvin Lustig, Ladislav Sutnar, and James Victore.

On a more personal level I would have to say my mentors Christian Helms and Michael Newhouse who have had a huge impact on my development and growth as a designer.


Frank SaysI’m a big fan of the multi-dimensional designers that were practicing towards the middle of the century. Guys like Paul Rand, Saul Bass, Alvin Lustig, Alexander Girard, and Stig Lindberg. They tackled everything from patterns, to packaging, to print, to interiors, to textiles to movie sequences.
