As you can perhaps surmise, my name is Benjamin Cannon and I am a graphic designer and writer living in Chicago.

I am intensely passionate about the practice of design and art direction, especially with respect to typography, branding, and copy. My approach is that of a hybrid creative, having a fascination with the interplay between language and image. My portfolio reflects these linked sensiblilities.

Presently I work for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics designing communications materials as well as webpages and advertisments. In my spare time I am a proud contributing writer for The Onion A.V. Club, the internet's foremost authority on pop culture. My writings can be found here.
