Co-founder and CEO
Ben’s degrees in religion and art history include a BA from Vassar College, masters degrees from Oxford University and the Courtauld Institute of Art, and a PhD from Glasgow University. He founded Orson & Co because he wanted to give digital books the opportunity to be as beautifully designed as books always have been.
Ben has written and designed a children’s Old Testament, The Oldest Bedtime Story Ever (2012), as both a book and an Orson. It received starred reviews in Booklist and Jewish Book World and won gold and bronze independent publishing medals upon its release (www.biblebeautiful.com).
In addition to being published in numerous magazines and academic publications, he has restored historic homes in the UK and designed and co-managed the first phase of a rural regeneration project in South Africa. His photographs have appeared in Italian Vogue and the international art-zine TAR.
