Meet the Designer
For years, Michael McHale was a pretty creative guy stuck in a fairly uncreative profession. He was an entertainment lawyer specializing in international television formats. But after years of drafting production agreements and format licenses for shows like Who Wants to be a Millionaire? and The Weakest Link, he realized that his creative itch wasn't being scratched. All that changed in 2007.
Within a few months of its founding, MMD was featured in The New York Times, which launched the company. Since then, MMD has been featured in dozens of publications including The Wall Street Journal, Dwell, Interior Design, New York Magazine, OK Magazine, Westchester Magazine, Hospitality Design, Cool Hunting, and Apartment Therapy, amongst others.
