Hey, friend. I’m Ben Whitla.

I build and sustain early–growth and at–scale brands.

I’m currently building something amazing at Blackbird.

Formerly I was a founding partner at Great Big Story where I led brand & creative partnerships. I’ve also designed and built the brand (and all original can designs) for Lord Hobo Brewing Company. A couple other fun brands I've built are Jibo and Libretto.

LinkedIn is still the best way to figure out where I’ve worked in the past. I tweet, but rarely, and mostly to complain about people with umbrellas. I’m pretty good at email, too.

I've also had the pleasure of working with such great brands in the past such as Yahoo, MINI, Hasbro, Mattel, Dreamworks, Daniel Boulud, Nike, and Johnny Cupcakes.
