Ben Basile
Ben is an Australian graphic designer, born and raised in Brisbane, Queensland. 
He is a bit of black, a bit white, a bit grey and colourful the other times…and RAD-ical.
Besides having a passion for graphic design, he has a music passion (or obsession some would say) and can be found playing in his band with his mates & listening to good RocknRoll music. He loves the 7” vinyl format.  Concert posters are another interest (could have said obsession here too), that takes in graphic design & music together—a double whammy. 
He also loves Sambuca, Thai food, Hot Sauce, KFC and a good burger.
After working his current day job for 20 years, he finally took the plunge (thanks to the COVID pandemic) to do the Shillington College full-time course in September 2020 and has learnt all the graphic elements to design RAD COOL SHIT!
