With a background in product design, Mil has worked for corporate clients in the world of fashion, food & drink and retail as well as non-profit organisations, cultural institutions and government agencies. His work has been worn on the feet of Italian footballers, drunk in bars, featured as a question on BBC's University Challenge and spent time in prison... what ties them together is a common approach, which perhaps is best described as milish.
An associate industry adviser to Scotland's Cultural Enterprise Office, Mil offers support to start-up businesses, with a particular focus on the power of brand narrative as a means of aligning great ideas to their intended audience.
Alongside his consultancy practice, Mil holds a lecturing post in the department of Product Design at Glasgow School of Art's new Innovation School. As well as teaching across both the undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in Product Design and Design Innovation, he has also co-designed and delivered a year-long Design Innovation workshop programme which was rolled out across Scotland on behalf of Scottish Enterprise to test the value of design-thinking on small/medium enterprises.
Passionate about the transformative power of design thinking at strategic level, Mil focuses on the design of experience from a user perspective, working with clients to innovate and enhance both their internal culture and public offering.
