A 40+ year veteran of the advertising and marketing business, Ben Graham spent his career as a graphic designer/illustrator, art director and creative director. Graham received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Northern Michigan University in 1974 and has been creating art, for and separate from his aesthetic based commercial career, ever since. For the past 30 years he has owned and operated the Ben Graham Group, Inc., a freelance visual strategy and design business, based in Lansing, Michigan. Before founding this business, he worked in advertising and publishing. Today he is an arts patron and working artist that draws inspiration from life experiences, his keen sense of observations and sense of humor. Last years entry 'Seeds of Change' was in the top 100 of the ArtPrize public vote. The 2015 entry 'Sign Language' was recently purchased by the City of Lansing, Michigan and permanently installed in downtown Lansing.
