I’m Ben Powell, a design lead & filmmaker currently creating digital products at MetaLab. I love working with passionate teams and believe in the importance of designing, shipping & promoting responsible, impactful technology.
Having spent the last 7 years working primarily as an interface & visual designer, I’ve become passionate about human-centred design. Working on technology that enables and improves people’s lives whilst respecting their attention is what gets me up in the morning. To build products which have humanity’s best interest at heart isn’t easy, but I believe it’s an important responsibility for everyone working in the tech industry and a challenge we should all relish.
In the last few years, I’ve worked on projects which have involved user research, interaction & motion design, visual design and product strategy in industries ranging from automotive to healthcare. I’ve also been lucky enough to bring a passion for filmmaking to work, creating short films for Monument Valley and ustwo’s Moodnotes.
