Tyler Hill & Michael Mitchell of Mitchell Hill
What is your favorite part of being a designer?
Our favorite part about being designers is the ability to create happiness. It's a simple formula with unique nuances (both past and present) that make the work turn into true passion projects. Our designs are all led by our ability to connect with our clients and lend our expertise in manifesting their vision.
Who or what would you cite as your most important influence?
I would say Michael and I are greatly influenced by the ways we each work. Over the years we have both helped each other to come out of our comfort zones etc. I personally have always been influenced by fashion because it is often an early indicator on where our industry is headed. Also influenced by various designers including Steven Gambrel, Kelly Wearstler, and Barry Dixon.
If you could travel back, what advice would you give yourself as you start this career?
If I could go back I would have told myself to spend more time burying myself in design publications. It's the best way to start familiarizing yourself with all tools of the design trade. And studying the pictures included in each feature even if you don't read the articles.
What is your current favorite resource?
Our relationships with our clients...the best resource one could have.
