As a designer Josh Wills is fascinated by the concept of Mise en place and how it can be applied to the design field as well as other creative professions. “Every time I sit at the chef’s counter at a restaurant,  I’m enamored––they craft good looking and even better tasting dishes non-stop for several hours straight. It’s controlled chaos, and absolutely beautiful to watch. Every design studio should hum with this same energy and efficiency.”

A panel of designers, restaurateurs, architects and chefs will discuss the application of Mise en place and how it can be applied outside the kitchen to many different disciplines.

Joshua Wills spends his days working as a graphic designer, thing-maker™, and creative director at Consume & Create™, a studio he co-founded in 2015. He is also co-founder of Svper Ordinary, a hybrid art gallery and retail space located in the RiNo Art District.
