Benjamin George is a multi-faceted curator of simple yet meaningful things.
Ben’s journey is a little different than most. He started his career at the age of seventeen after dropping out of high school, with grandiose plans of becoming a 3D artist. After realising he was rather inept at it, Ben veered towards web design and began teaching himself. Fast forward a few years and a whole lot of ass-busting, Ben is now a designer, artist and mentor.
During his seven-year stint in Sourcebits where Ben was under the tutelage of Apple Design Award Winner — Piotr Gajos, he had the honour to develop products and services in a wide range of categories from finance, healthcare, e-commerce and enterprise products for companies such as Intel, SAP, IBM, P&G, to name a few. He grew from an enthusiastic junior designer to a creative director leading a team of 11 designers.
For the past two years, Ben has helped build FreshMenu from the ground up. During this time, FreshMenu grew from a few kitchens to one of the leading mobile kitchens in Bangalore, Mumbai and Delhi.
In his spare time, Ben can be found painting murals on walls for different restaurants and cafes in Bangalore. And if not painting, he’s usually found pacing on the football pitch representing Bangalore City FC.
