Benjamin Martin

Industrial Designer

Ben joined Whipsaw in 2018 after graduating from San Jose State with a B.S. in Industrial Design. Since then he has been working on a variety of projects from tiny electronics to large gaming machines. Ben always brings a fresh perspective to every project and is not afraid to go wide in his conceptual explorations. He likes to channel his energy and humor into his design solutions in order to ultimately delight the end user.

Ben’s design work is inspired mostly by travel. “The world around me is too fascinating to be left undiscovered” as he says. He is especially moved by local pop culture from every corner of the planet, usually in the form of idiosyncratic movies, products, illustration or video games. This curiosity about the world around him teaches him about what motivates people, and is the perfect means to fill a mental catalog of design reference.
