MGD helps clients to steer their design strategy and develop their design language in order to capture the minds and hearts of contemporary consumers. Being genuinely cross-disciplinary, our work spans from branding to digital experiences and industrial design. Our structure is different from other design companies: We don’t have corporate hierarchies and dependencies. Instead, we work on the basis of collaborative teams with creative people from different backgrounds. Depending on the nature of the project, we work with product designers, financial analysts, computer scientists, art historians, business theorists, filmmakers, architects and many more.
MGD’s founder and facilitator is Mario Gagliardi. Having been at the forefront of highly successful corporate and government innovation initiatives, Mario has over thirty years of experience in the design sector. Mario was Chief Designer and Head of Design Strategy at LG, where he created a range of category-defining products and brands such as 后 Whoo, Korea’s most successful and fastest growing luxury brand now generating annual sales of 1,4 billion US$. He worked as Advisor of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Culture, where he designed Austria’s transformative digital education ecosystem. He then served as CEO at Qatar Foundation, developing strategies which inspired a range of transformative social and cultural initiatives in Qatar. Mario was appointed Professor at IDAS, Hongik University in Korea and Professor at Aalborg University in Denmark.
