Hey, friend. I’m Ben Whitla.

I build and expand early–growth and at–scale brands by way of branding & marketing.

I’m currently the Head of Brand & Creative for Grubhub.

Previously I built brands at Known where I led our work for TikTok (earning them AdAge Marketer of the Year), Rockefeller Center (which led to their historic rebranding), Shift4 (where we worked with SpaceX and St Jude on the first all civilian mission to space – creating a Super Bowl Campaign, Netflix series and tons more), as well as others.

Formerly, I was a founding partner at Great Big Story (sadly shut down) where I led Brand & Creative Partnerships. I’ve also designed and built the brand and original can designs for Lord Hobo Brewing Company.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with a bunch of other great brands: Nike, Yahoo, Nomadica, MINI, Hasbro, Mattel, Dreamworks, Daniel Boulud, and Johnny Cupcakes.

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.
