About Benjamin Allison
Art direction, branding, graphic design, and illustration in Sonoma, Napa and the San Fransisco Bay Area.
I’m Benjamin Allison, a graphic designer and illustrator originally from Toronto, Canada, currently based in the North San Francisco Bay, California. The focus of my design work is branding, food & beverage packaging, and 3D visualization. My illustration work makes heavy use of solid colors, sweeping tangents, and analog textures.
I’m available for engagement with art direction, brand design, graphic design, web design and illustration projects.
I am also a fine artist, with a focus on drawing, painting and printmaking.
My work explores how internal structures can be exposed to impart spiritual insights: simple examinations of how confluent lines suggest form; the excavation of nostalgias; one’s experience of their own psychological extremes. These explorations all seek to understand the transmission of interior to exterior, and transmutation which moves us back into some unexpected aspect of the observed’s substance.
