Ahoy, we're 55 Knots!

55 KNOTS is run by eBay’s former Creative Director, Benjamin Williams. After many years in the industry, Ben realised that sourcing top-tier creatives offshore was possible–but often tricky.

Where do you find them? Are they as good as their folio? Will they deliver?

Hiring local Aussie talent when possible is great. However, it often comes with a premium price tag, which not every budget can afford. Other times, local freelancers abort ship or fail to deliver on time and on brief–despite their accolades.

That’s where 55 KNOTS fills the gap.
