About the Designer

Benjamin Chew, Humber College

Since I was young, I’ve always enjoyed creating things. It didn’t matter if I was making movies, drawing made up characters, or building castles out of cardboard, I loved it. Today that same passion for solving a problem and creating something new has followed me through to my design career.
