Mimi Love, principal of Utile, Inc., (http://www.utiledesign.com/) an architectural and urban planning practice located in downtown Boston, will discuss her entrepreneurial life in the competitive architectural design world. While a working as an associate and lead designer at Machado and Silvetti, an internationally known firm, Mimi and her husband made the leap to entrepreneurship when they started their successful firm, Utile, Inc. They handle all types of design projects such as the master plan and renovation of the Advent school in Beacon Hill, master plan for Emerson Hall at Harvard University, and a new retail center in Marshfield, Massachusetts to name a few.
Salon members will be treated with an up close and personal account of Mimi's successful career from her design work for Utile, Inc. to the book that she co-authored Color Space Style, published by Rockport Press. Mimi will highlight the importance of the service side of the Design Industry (critical to all designers in competitive fields). We will hear about her firm’s philosophy for running a design practice (as a business), distinguishing Utile, inc from other firms, and trying to stay hip in the ever-changing design world!
