30 Years of The Mill | Animator, Greg Park

To celebrate ‘30 Years Of The Mill’ we are turning our focus to the extraordinary people behind our creativity. We asked a snapshot of 30 Makers from across The Mill to share their most inspiring projects from the past, alongside their future-facing insights on the advertising industry and evolution of creative technology. Find out what spot influenced Animator and former Mill runner, Greg Park to join The Mill and why he thinks AR will change the future of the creative industry.

What piece of work inspired you to get into a career at The Mill & why?

When I first watched Old Spice’s ‘The Man Your Man Could Smell Like‘ I looked at the commercial, looked back at myself, looked back at the commercial and looked back at myself. I knew I had to apply to The Mill, the spot was not only fun and creative but the attention to detail and high level of craftsmanship was incredibly impressive. 


What will be the most defining change in the creative industry over the next decade?  

I feel like the most defining change in the creative industry over the next decade will be further innovations in AR. Our phones are now as essential as our wallets and purses (if not more so) and have become an extension of how we see and digest the world around us. AR will not only enhance this but truly alter the way we interact with the world through our phones.
