Two Twelve (New York) added Ben Whitehouse to its staff as Associate Creative Director and promoted Sharmi Patel from senior designer to Associate Creative Director.
Whitehouse joins the Two Twelve team from Whitehouse & Company, and brings a wealth of experience in graphic design, including branding, print, environmental graphic design and new media. His skills as a designer are matched by his ability to lead and manage a project effectively. Working on Creative Director Jonathan Posnett’s team, he'll will be adding his unique perspective to projects such as the University of Connecticut, Newark Airport and Alexander Court, a trophy-class office building in the heart of Washington, D.C. Whitehouse is also a Co-Chair of the SEGD New York chapter.
Sharmi Patel, in her previous role as a Senior Designer on Creative Director Anna Sharp’s team, immersed herself in a variety of complex projects, ranging from major healthcare institutions like The Queen’s Medical Center in Hawai‘i to urban wayfinding projects such as the City of Provo, Utah. Her depth of experience and dedication to client needs allow her to easily step into her new role as Associate Creative Director and continue her tremendous efforts at Two Twelve.
"The Associate Creative Director role will create a powerful new dynamic that allows Two Twelve teams to adapt to the needs of any given project and provide our clients with expert attention on a variety of fronts," says Principal Ann Harakawa.
“We are expanding our reach and our capabilities in order to better serve our clients,” adds Harakawa. “Sharmi and Ben are able to provide leadership and manage projects efficiently while using their particular skill sets to find the hidden logic of any space.”
