Founder McKinlay Kidd
“We first worked with Ben nearly 15 years ago when he designed our new company's very first website. It is a testament to the quality of service and creativity he offers that he is still a valuable business partner.”

"There are two things you need to be to work at Dare, good and nice. Addressing the former, Ben is a methodical IA whose work unashamedly leans toward the visual design end of the spectrum. His documentation is arguably among the best I've seen. In relation to being nice, Ben's surf-bred, laconic and thoughtful approach to life makes him the perfect example of a healthy work-life balance. Being both good and nice we worked with him more than once and, in similar circumstances, we'd work with him again."

"I can recommend Ben very highly. He is very conscientious and attentive to detail around design itself, but also has a bigger-picture view of what we were trying to achieve as a business. Great client communication skills, and also a good guy to have around on the team for long stints on client site."
