Understanding people and business
We spend every day seeking clear and creative solutions to complex problems. And we know the best way to do that is empathetic, user-centered design thinking.
That's why every aspect of our work is rooted in the human elements that the product will interact with, and the business elements that will help to make it possible. We do this through a systematic process of observation of human behaviour and societal trends. Synthesizing those factors into a single, systemized product is what we do best.
Take a complex problem. Boil it down to the component parts. Identify the value proposition.
Try, try, and try again. Build out our solution with a quick cycle of build-fail-repeat.
Elegant solutions that leave clients happy and make the world a better-designed place.
Here's our process:

Director at Urban Retreat Homes
Miles is a rigorous, diligent, award winning design professional who continues to raise the bar for design in Canada. He understands and promotes design as a driver of business, the economy and the environment. I have no hesitation to recommend him for a position- he'd be an asset to any team.
Owner at Ove Industrial Design
Miles has grown from highly creative contributor to highly respected competitor, and remained a friend throughout. Miles' reputation as a talented and dedicated designer is well known, and his portfolio of design successes ranks with the best. Work with him if you get the chance.
Owner at SKP Innovation
Miles is highly creative and able to see things in a new and different way. He was originally hired to improve the "look" of our Zenon product but he was able to reduce cost and improve functionality, especially when his efforts were coupled closely with our engineering knowledge.
