Ben Lewis Creative.
Nov 2009 - Present (11 years 11 months)
Developed a one piece display fixture through research and innovation to interface with both of the predominant retail display systems. This doubled production volume to reduce per unit cost. Used visual communication to convey complex ideas to Chinese factories, ensuring original design intent and product quality. Redesigned a helmet fit system, reducing the cost by over 50%. The result is a universal design which is operable with only one hand. Conceived, developed, and implemented a holistic brand solution for a high end apparel start up that spans the physical product, website interface, and social media. http://benlewiscreative.com

Funded, organized, marketed, and managed a non profit bike shop start up.
