Rad­i­cal Ren­der­ings


Ben Hermance’s love of all things au­to­mo­tive be­came ap­par­ent at an early age. His fa­ther was a suc­cess­ful deal­er­ship gen­eral man­ager, and his un­cles were deeply in­volved with hot rods since the ’50s—so there were plenty of in­flu­en­tial peo­ple in his life that fu­eled his rapidly grow­ing in­ter­est. Ben was el­e­vated to Honors and Ad­vanced Place­ment art classes in high school, con­cen­trat­ing on in­dus­trial de­sign. Upon grad­u­at­ing from the in­dus­trial de­sign pro­gram at Went­worth In­sti­tute of Technology in 2002, he worked as a staff de­signer at an award-win­ning prod­uct de­sign firm out­side Bos­ton. Since set­ting out on his own, he has worked on an ex­tremely broad range of projects. He’s cre­ated some very rec­og­niz­able lo­gos and brand­ing for after­mar­ket parts ven­dors and shops but is most well-known for ren­der­ings of ev­ery­thing from hot rods and street ma­chines to lifted show trucks and body kits for su­per­cars.
