667 - Fright Rags - Creep Week 2017 - Chapter III

Ben Scrivens, president and founder of Fright Rags has created a vast collection of pop-culture inspired items for people just like himself, fans of all things horror! A one-time graphic designer that found his favorite work was the work that he did for himself while tackling the subject matter that means the most to him. Ben shares with Adventures In Design the pitfalls, hard work and happy moments that he experiences daily with running his lifestyle brand and navigating his way through the licensing, product production and consumer goods industries.
