2018 was an eventful year for MINIMAL. We engaged in exciting new partnerships, saw a number of our designs hit the market and win awards, and made our mark across a diverse range of industries. Our team approaches design holistically—bridging the gaps between product design, engineering, UX/UI, branding, and strategy—to create meaningful impact and build value for our clients.
Scott Wilson and MINIMAL have decided to partner closely with Chicago’s Cresco Labs, one of the of the largest vertically integrated, multi-state cannabis companies in the U.S., to elevate their entire consumer experience.

These first six months of 2017 have been blanketed in unrelenting noise that’s almost impossible to escape. Luckily at this year’s Chicago NeoCon, we’re launching three products that will filter out the noise and provide opportunities to relax in privacy to find your signal. Work hard in silence and let success be the noise.
We are thrilled to announce Wilson Fong has joined the team as Partner in MNML Ventures, a new group within the MINIMAL portfolio of companies. The focus will be on funding, mentoring, connecting and amplifying early stage companies.
The Compasso d′Oro is the oldest industrial design award of Europe and one of the greatest honors of industrial design in the world. We are thrilled that Scott Wilson's design, Sisifo, for Artemide, has been awarded a 2016 honorable mention.
