They select an area to comment on their experience in front of the camera, working with media, managing interviews and public speaking, gives them the confidence to engage with an audience to entertain and inform.
Mitch – With a background in marketing and communications, ‘Mitch’ always looks for, finds, and shares the Joy in life. His enthusiasm, flair and creativity make him an innovator in the marketing industry and 15 years ago he turned his focus to property and design. Always keen to ‘get ahead’ ‘Mitch’ saw property improvement as an opportunity and tapped into Australian’s desire for high end, quality design that is affordable. ‘Mitch’, a qualified interior decorator, brings fun, high energy, and a large dose of glamour to everything he does, inspiring those around him.
Mark – Having many years’ experience working with people, being a strategist in corporate life, and with an education in psychology, ‘Mark’ brings to renovations his planning, project management, and understanding of people. In 2005 he met ‘Mitch’, and not long after the pair decided that property improvement was the way to create a better future together. With no prior experience ‘Mark’ dove into the first project, and overtime has created the process and model used to achieve 20 renovations in 15 years. His experience helps him understand the personal barriers and strengths that affect successful renovations.
What makes Mitch and Mark unique as designers is their belief that each home is unique, and they don’t take a cookie-cutter approach to interior design and décor. As a result they are responsive to the needs of their clients and location, able to apply different styles to meet the brief, rather than rely on one ‘signature look’ that defines their style.
