Ben Nicholson, Creative Director at Cincinnati-based Lightborne will be joining DCS‘ Adobe User’s Group to share some insight into his creative process and show off some of the projects that were born from that creativity.

Since Joining Lightborne in 2000, Ben has overseen the development of a once one-man motion design department into a fully staffed global creative force. Ben has directed and animated both live-action and animated national Ad campaigns, music videos and tour visuals. At Lightborne, Ben is the dreamer and the technical limit pusher who is always looking for a new way to not only execute motion design but also to display it. This want comes from years of prior experience working on media for Disney rides, robotic projection screens, and just about every other surface where video should not be seen. Creative collaboration is the fuel for his fire and he loves helping clients execute, grow and implement their vision.
Ben’s credits include work for MTV, Death Cab for Cutie, Kenny Chesney, Puma, and many others.
