Ben Shaffery has been a creative at Wieden + Kennedy London for the past 4 years, working on a range of local and international accounts. Some of his more recent work was Cravendale’s ‘Barry the Biscuit’ campaign featuring an animated biscuit boy, and Stirde’s ‘Gumulon’, the world’s first chew-controlled game.

Prior to that, Ben studied at London College of Communication and took part in a student exchange in Hong Kong for a semester. Following on from his time in HK, Ben also completed a string of internships that took him around the world, working for agencies in New Zealand, Shanghai and New York where he gained experience working in different markets.

In his spare time, Ben likes to play squash and volleyball. He’s also into cycling and likes to get on his bike and head out into the countryside when he can. Other than that he loves travelling and finding new places to explore.

Ben is very excited to be chosen for TIE and is looking forward to working in a completely different environment, with the guys from Kusamala, in Malawi. You can read more about his project HERE.
