Ben BlanchardSenior Packaging & Brand DesignerThrive Market

Ben Blanchard is a senior packaging abd brand designer at Thrive Market, an e-commerce based organic and natural product retailer. As Thrive Market grows rapidly the packaging team is constantly challenged with producing work at a high volume while working to leverage multi-touchpoint design to connect with our valued members. 

Prior to joining the Thrive Market team Ben worked for packaging design agency DuPuis where he worked to build new brands and rethink existing ones through strategic collaboration with brands including: Frito Lay, Nestlé, Patagonia and more. 

Ben's work strives to bridge the gap between strategy, aesthetic and those that enjoy the things he helps create. When not sketching at his desk he can be found surfing the long point-breaks of Southern California.
