"The Guy to Watch is Ben Powers"


My brother, Ben, as many of you know, is a graphic designer in Memphis.

Well…what you may not know is that he designed some promotional materials for this year’s Grammys. (See his work at left.)

And because he is so friggin’ awesome…the Memphis Commercial Appeal has done an article on him and his co-worker.

Just thought I’d brag…er…share.

is very proud

    You guys are all so creative–I’m impressed! My family, not so much (pharmacist, banker, teacher–ok, that’s creative). Your brother sounds like a hoot. I loved the robust redhead comment–lol.

    My favorite quote: “…said Powers, a robust redhead whose creative juices ricochet on strong coffee and brownies”!!

    Love it!! Like brother, like sister!!

    Aww, you must be so proud. What a family!

    Awesome work Ben! Monk Bot Brother…

  12. ivoryhut Says:

    Wow! Really cool. I feel so proud! Almost as if I’m reading about my own younger brother. (Except, I can’t call Ben in the middle of the night and ask him if he’s snacking on rolls and warm chocolate milk.)

    So, y’all sing, play multiple instruments, and do all sorts of creative stuff. Such a cool family!

    Can I be an honorary Powers?
