The Hatchling is a spectacular, free live event, taking place in Plymouth in August 2020. Produced by the award-winning creative team at Trigger in collaboration with leading designers, the project combines age-old myth with innovative puppetry and cutting edge technology.

Arts & Culture
Arts & culture work for various clients, including a invite for a Cassini space mission funeral. Club night posters for interactive theatre-makers, Coney and a poetry pamphlet in response to motorway service stations.
Working with Ben has been a really positive experience which resulted in a great outcome for our business. We required a brand identity for a new vegan deli & cafe that we were launching and wanted a bold contemporary logo that projected a strong personality. Ben was very quick to understand our ideas and quickly came back with suggestions that were far more innovative and interesting than the other opinions that we sought. We are really pleased with the brand and have received a lot of positive feedback from others.
