"CVA was the perfect place to learn visually. CVA builds creative muscle. The portfolio work from CVA is top notch and opens doors to the best creative jobs in the country."
– Ben Levitz
Studio On Fire founder Benjamin Levitz received his BFA in Communication Design from the College of Visual Arts in 1998. After graduation, he went on to work at several design firms and agencies, honing his skills on national branding projects. Feeling an intense drive to bring a tactile sensibility and unique design vision to his creative work, he began the letterpress business in 1999 with a Chandler & Price platen press in the basement of his home. In 2006 Ben left the agency world forever to run the much expanded and fully staffed studio full-time. Studio On Fire's current client list includes premier agencies, firms and individuals across the US and world with print and design work consistently appearing in award shows and publications of AIGA, Communication Arts, Graphis, Print magazine and Type Directors Annual. Ben has served as an adjunct faculty member at the College of Visual Arts teaching advanced typography course work. He lives in St. Paul, MN with his wife, three children and beloved bull terrier.
