My name is Ben Keenan, I am an award-winning multidisciplinary creative director, strategist and writer.

I have led creative at some of the worlds biggest advertising networks including Clemenger BBDO Melbourne and M&C Saatchi. I’m also a passionate teacher who has been head of the prestigious AWARD School of creative thinking.

My own work has received over 200 awards across 30 separate projects at Cannes, OneShow, D&AD, New York Festivals, Facebook Studio, Twitter Awards, and Webbies.

Outside of the advertising world, I've been an active connector in the creative tech and business community. I've hosted hackerthons, advised start-ups and served on the board of PauseFest. I've also been a participant and presenter at SXSW Interactive in Austin Texas, allowing me to grow a global network of collaborators.

Thought Police is a modern creative collective made for these times. We are highly collaborative and radically resourceful. We utilise our own creative process called the Keenan Method to solve business, product and behaviour problems. See The Creative Class for workshops based on this process.

We've worked with agencies, with brands, government departments, emerging businesses, activists, media companies. Plugging in where needed to offer strong strategic and creative thinking, and a global network to make ambitious ideas happen.
