Ben Crothers has been involved in design since before Netscape ruled the www, and in digital strategy for about the last 10 years. Ben is currently a Director of innovation projects at Second Road, a strategic innovation consultancy.
Previous to Second Road, Ben was a design manager at Atlassian, where he built a research and design strategy team, guided product strategy, and installed several patterns and processes to help grow the design thinker in everyone throughout the organisation. He even resorted to dressing up like a doctor to spread the word outside of Atlassian about the Atlassian Team Health Monitor, which is live to the world for everyone to use.
Ben leads innovation workshops, teaches sketching and visual communication, and helps teams prototype and test new concepts in all sorts of ways.
He enjoys extreme sports like acrylic painting and brewing beer.
