  • Benjamin Stimson

    Creative Director

    Benjamin is a rising director/producer living in Pawlet, Vermont alongside the wild Mettawee River. With his dynamic background in film and sales he built Almost Blue's marketing driven house at the intersection of art and commerce. Most people make buying decisions based on emotion. Almost Blue meaningfully communicates your message directly to the emotional center of your clients. You know that feeling you get in a book or movie when it seems like the characters are talking only to you? At Almost Blue we study your customer base and begin speaking their language.
