Ben Roberts

President & Creative Director

Ben leads the team as Creative Director with 24 years of experience directing and designing projects for both public and private sector clients, creating brands, campaigns, and marketing materials across all print, video and web. His primary role is getting to know the clients and their target audience, creating and directing the overall project strategy with the team, and translating it all into a suite of marketing tools and campaigns to equip them in their mission. Ben keeps the team on their toes with his never ending supply of puns and comic relief.

Upon graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree from Ohio University’s School of Visual Communications in 2000, Ben relocated to Alexandria, VA to help build a graphic design and marketing firm. As Vice President and Art Director of that firm, Ben built and lead a team of artists and developers over a period of seven years. Ben sold his share in the partnership and then created Six Half Dozen Design Studio, which provides branding, creative strategy, design, video and web development services to a wide variety of both local and global Corporations, Ad Agencies, Government Agencies, PR Firms, Associations and Nonprofits.

With 20+ years of Marketing & Design Experience, Ben created Six Half Dozen to bring a full spectrum of design consulting to individuals and organizations that are looking for more than a production artist. He believes that any project can have a variety of solutions and that it is important to bring to his clients a more in-depth analysis of what they are asking for. With this approach to design he is almost always able to find the most effective and efficient solution and is never afraid to take a few steps back in order to move forward, as he believes it is a proven problem-solving technique and is sometimes necessary to get the best results.
