Benny Gold

Do a Google search for 'Benny Gold' and you'll find that the San Francisco-based graphic designer is all over the web. Beyond maintaining his website at, he also writes various columns, runs an online shop, has a MySpace page, a Facebook profile and a Twitter ID. And it's not just high-tech promotional tools that help Gold build his brand. "My friend Bryan spotted my sticker on a Mexican mariachi band heading to work," he remembers. "I have no idea how the sticker got there, but it's an honour greater than any press I could possibly get."

Gold, who went solo in 2007, is best known for his logo work. "My favourite type of projects are identity jobs. I really enjoy working on logos," he says. "There is a lot of brainstorming and thought that goes into them, and I find them extremely challenging and exciting. I have had the pleasure of creating the original identities for Huf, Mash, Highsnobiety and many more. I've also worked with many notable clients, including Stussy, Gravis, Carhartt Europe, Nike, Adidas, Real Skateboards, Ipath and DVS footwear. In addition to freelancing, I also run a signature clothing label - the Benny Gold brand."
