About Ben Newman

Ben Newman has developed a distinct aesthetic over the years; a contemporary fusion of bold shapes, bright colours and playful characters which has been described as 'bauhaus fuzzy felt.' He has produced work for a large range of clients, including the Tate Modern, New York Times, BBC Radio 4, Apple, Google and The New Yorker. His practice extends outside of commercial work into worldwide exhibitions, paintings and three dimensional collaborations.

Ben co-created the Professor Astro Cat children's books with his longtime friend and scientist, Dr Dominic Walliman, which have been translated into twenty-four languages.

Ben has produced several books with Macmillan Children's Books, including Snip Snap, Rumble Tumble and the My First Book of Everything series.
