Ben Middleton
chief creative officer (cco) & founder
Creature

Ben - or to call him by his full name, ‘Ben out of Ben & Stu’ - has wanted to work in advertising and to run his own agency since he was a kid, growing up on the mean streets of Guildford. He got his wish straight out of university after he and Stu nabbed a coveted role at multiple-Agency-of-the-year, Mother. They spent the better part of the next decade there, working (and winning awards) on pretty much every client in the building, before ripping the agency’s creative heart out when they left to set up Creature with Dan in 2011. Ben’s never happier than when he’s riding a wave of intelligent misbehaviour to create work that real people can’t help but care about.
