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 are published by Flying Eye Books and have been translated into 24 other languages.

Snip Snap and Rumble Tumble are his first books with Macmillan Children's Books.
