All Posts Our New Managing Design Director Might Look Familiar To You

by: Ellen Siminoff on Feb 27, 2014

Sliced Bread Design is delighted to announce the promotion of Mia O’Neill to Managing Design Director. Mia previously served as Design Director.

Time flies when you’re as busy as Mia has been. Over the last nine years, she has led numerous high-profile assignments, including redesigning the dashboard and workflow for eBay sellers, dabbling in agricultural applications of big data with a new holistic system for The Climate Corporation to help farmers quote, compare and purchase crop insurance and making life a little easier for electric car charging station managers and drivers with a major cross-platform UI project for ChargePoint. Mia also gets credit for the smart new look and feel of the Sliced Bread site. She was the one behind our internal UX efforts and the key figure in innovating and improving our existing systems, processes and formats to keep things fresh and current and reflect our position as leaders in the design thinking space. No wonder we promoted her! For clients who are used to having Mia as their primary point of contact, fear not – nothing will change for you. Going forward, however, her new role as Managing Design Director means that she’ll be assuming creative control over a greater number of projects, but serving as the direct contact on fewer. It’s too bad that there’s only one of her. We at Sliced Bread pride ourselves on knowing a good thing when we see it. We scooped Mia up just after she graduated from Stanford and she’s been an asset to the team ever since. We’re excited to have her take on this new role and to continue the exceptional performance and trademark enthusiasm she brings to all of her projects. Congratulations, Mia. We can’t wait to see what you’ll achieve next.
