Founder
The Midnight Club

Ben is the Founder of creative agency The Midnight Club. Having worked in various roles at Dentsu Aegis Network for 6 years, he started TMC in 2016 as a new-world antidote to relentless flux and tension in the marketing industry.  

Operating at the forefront of sport, trend and culture comms, 'the club' thrives on offering more influence and control to it's youngest staff, whilst insisting on only ever hiring 'hybrid talent' - allowing for fat-free, alternative creative solutions at electric speeds. Ben's agency has grown from 5 to 25 people in 12 months, counting adidas and Spotify amongst it's key clients. 

"I feel like if there was ever a rule book for agency design, it's now in tatters - which is great! I'm looking for firms which recognise and embrace that, those actively proving major shifts in model and philosophy, with brilliant consequences."
