Mike Brown, Principal, Founder
I am passionately devoted to the future of storytelling and experience — merging art and technology; the physical with the digital — in relentless pursuit of meaningful emotional connection. Creativity and craft power me. Visionaries and outliers in architecture, design and technology inspire me. I am a storyteller driven by the power of design to re-ignite human connectivity.
I am a Strategic Creative Director / Designer with over 20 years of experience designing for notable brands and agencies across commerce and culture. Creating narratives through the built environment and live experience is my passion. I excel with collaborative processes — from internal strategic creative leadership to client facing business acumen. And I am driven to build solutions that are responsible, intelligent and beautiful — digital to physical, pop-up to permanent, interactive to multi-sensory.
I've held positions at FCBX (SVP Group Creative Director), and Superfly (VP Creative Director, Experiential Strategy & Design). My clients under Lot71 have included Chanel, Bulgari, Swarovski, Tommy Hilfiger, Diesel, Adidas Y-3, Uniqlo / Fast Retailing, CNN, Verizon, MLB, Coca-Cola, and Collins, Rockwell Group, Radical Media, Ogilvy, Momentum, Wasserman, Havas, Grey.
I believe the digital age has sparked a profound renaissance for design and the human experience, both for what we can create and what people are craving now more than ever — meaningful emotional connection. Launched as a complement to Lot71, my art and my commerce per se, The Capture Shop is my new exploration of the stories I see within the built environment.
