Mick McConnell

I entered college at the precipice of Deconstructivism, digital media and representation, and on the downward slide of modernism and brutalism. Trained in architecture with an emphasis on graphic design, my career has been a mixtape of design, strategy, and product development. I have held leadership roles at WPP, Arnell, Starbucks, R/GA, Chipotle, Samsung, and WeWork.

PASSIONS

Areas I'm passionate about

As creative leaders with a shared commitment to quality, collaboration, and creativity, we're proud to pursue out most meaningful work and deliver the best every time.

As Head of Design Innovation at WeWork, much of the work we focused our energy on was how to incorporate a true process of reduce, reuse, and recycle methodology to every aspect of our work. Build Less™ became our mantra and we used data research to determine optimum programming, product design, space utilization, and operations to attain this. With estimates as high as 50% of the total landfill make-up being construction waste, circular economies and sustainable cities go hand in hand.
