Or business-wise,  my (Ben Weldon) Linkedin profile.

I started out designing and building websites in London, as a designer I worked my way up through a cool design agency called Gurus there until escaping the UK in 2004 to travel.

Leaving London and freelancing to fund my adventures I gained valuable experience working on print and web design and development for a ton of companies around the world.

From small start ups to multinationals my clients have included Ford, Reuters, The Australian Liberal Party and Disney. I now run Thread Design a Branding Agency in Shanghai.
