DCS Guest speaker: Ben Nicholson of Lightborne

ben500

Ben Nicholson, Creative Director at Cincinnati-based Lightborne will be joining DCSAdobe User’s Group to share some insight into his creative process and show off some of the projects that were born from that creativity. Lightborne’s work is focused on motion graphics, but anyone can benefit from Ben’s advice and perspective on the creative process.

This meeting is the first in a three-part series of meetings on video and motion graphics. We are not planning to discuss technical design or animation techniques, but rather focus on broader creative topics. So whether you’re a print designer, web designer, or photographer, you should be able to gain something from attending this meeting.

  3. We’ll watch various clips of Ben’s work accompanied by his notes/anecdotes
  4. Brief Q+A
  5. Door prize giveaway (2 books, chosen by winners)

About Ben

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.

Wow what a great day for a move. The weather was super, we had tons of help on hand and we were successfully able to transfer all the contents of our 232 East Sixth Street office over to our new building.

Thanks so much to all who helped, it was an excellent display of teamwork. We were able to load and unload the truck in record time—which just leaves the jobs of finding and putting everything in it’s space and learning to work in our new building. Also big thanks to Oregon Printing who offered the use of their new delivery van for our move and thanks to Bev Shillito for the wonderful sandwiches and goodies, Joanie Wire for beers and more goodies and Rob’s mom, Jennifer Romick for the wonderful cakes.

Check out the photos from the move here. More will be added shortly.
