Hi, my name is Benjamin Slagt. I started in 2008 as a freelance Visualizer in the advertising business, visualizing storyboards and ideas for several international ad agencies and brands. Within this time I discovered the beauty of Art direction and started my first job as a jr. Art Director in 2012. Over the years I’ve worked on my conceptual skills while still visualising my own ideas. I’m currently working as an Art Director at Eigen Fabrikaat (which is part of DDB Group), together with copywriter Geert van Leeuwen.
In the past I’ve worked for agencies like: JWT Amsterdam, Geometry global, AKQA, Publicis, Lost boys international, The Others, LikeFriends, Boomerang Create, Yune, Super Interactive, Doogle, Friday, Wanderlust, Staples Agency Europe, and more.
And worked for brands like: Heineken, SamSung, Post NL, Opel, BMW, Philips, KPMG, Lucky Strike, Kent, Staples, FIFA, Kit kat, DSW, Zilveren Kruis, Achmea, Desperados, Apple Bandit, Mentos, Mini, Mastercard, Kroese Paternotte, Lighthouse corp. USA, Woolworth, Dirk vd broek, Dekamarkt, etc.
I also create illustrations under the name Benji Crafts. You can find a selection of illustrations at www.benjicrafts.com (soon online)
