Ben Terrett


I am Director of Design at the Government Digital Service, Cabinet Office, HM Government, where I lead a team of multi-disciplinary designers behind GOV.UK which won the Design Museum's Design of the Year and a D&AD Black Pencil.

Before that I was Design Director at Wieden + Kennedy London. I am also a founder and non-executive director of Newspaper Club, a business that helps people make newspapers. I have spoken globally about design and appeared on Radio 4's Today programme. I have written for various publications including, since 2006, on my blog Noisy Decent Graphics.
