Hey, nice to meet you.
I'm Ben Pang, an Associate Creative Director based in San Francisco.
Throughout my career, I've dabbled in various areas – campaigns, art direction, food photography (ask me how I cooked with Aaron Franklin), design, social creative, film, TV, and experimental projects. However, my goal is simple: to create work that makes you feel something.
In today's fast-paced world, attention spans are less than a TikTok video. While crafting intelligent and well-crafted content is important, it's not the only factor. We need to go straight to the heart. To truly make a lasting impression, we have to build an emotional connections—whether through humor, non-conformity, imagination, surprise, or even absurdity—whatever it takes to ensure that what people see remains etched in their memories.
Originally from Hong Kong, San Francisco has become my second home. Let's hope we can meet offline soon.
