Hi, I’m Ben- your (new) Creative Guide

No Comments

Heja everybody,

I am Ben. From now on I will be with you for some projects on jovoto as your new creative guide (high fives). Back in the days, I used to work at jovoto as a designer and PR guy, before leaving in late 2012 to work on other projects myself, and now I am back. I am one of the few remaining Berliners living in Berlin, I was born and raised in Kreuzberg, home of jovoto.

First up for me, is the Read Local Crowdstorm with Passauer Neue Presse – a Bavarian newspaper is looking for creative ways to attract new readers and retain long-term subscribers.


I went to school in Berlin and even to university (Universität der Künste Berlin). But that doesn’t mean I‘ve never left my hometown! I love traveling and even spent a time living abroad in the U.A.E – and last year I traveled around Iceland & Canada for 3 months.



So what did I do for the last 3 years since leaving jovoto? I co-founded my own Startup – it was called 50HOURS and it was an app for iOS. The concept: last minute tickets in an app for your city and a personalised list of events. It was a great experience but unfortunately, the app failed. I also founded another company that is still running. We buy and sell used designer furniture through an online shop.


And I started consulting for other companies on marketing strategies, user experience, design, and communication. I’m continuing to do that at the moment as a freelancer. And that‘s how I ended up working for jovoto again 😀 And I am so happy to be able to work as a creative guide and see a lot of cool ideas made by you!

You can find me on the platform here. Get in touch if you have any questions about the Read Local Crowdstorm or any others I’m guiding in the future.
