Name: Ben Balana
Title: Content Writer
What inspires you to write an article about design?
“I’m a huge fan of art and culture. Since working at ANDESIGN, I’ve also developed an appreciation for great design – the way a museum exhibit is laid out, the architecture used in a building or even the way an album cover is made.”
What are some of your hobbies?
“I’ve been playing the guitar since I was 12. I don’t play as often as I’d like, but I still like to buy new instruments from time to time. My latest purchase was a Native Instruments Maschine Mk 2 – a MIDI sampler. Music has always been a huge part of my life and I like to make short songs here and there. Also, too much of my money ends up going to concerts and shows of all sorts, but they’re always worth it.”
“I lived in the Philippines for a year and spent my 4th grade there. It was a cool experience. I was stuck in Manila, which is a big city and a lot dirtier than LA. I didn’t appreciate it at the time, but I haven’t been back since. When I do eventually take a trip, I’d like to visit the smaller more rural islands.”
