ABOUT ME My name is Benjamin S. Griswold and I’m a designer who is fascinated by cartoons, animation, playful design and the hidden secrets of the world. I believe there is beauty and inspiration found all around us, especially in the unnoticed everyday forms I am currently an industrial design student at University Wisconsin-Stout. I am looking for an internship.
