We are fast, while paying our best attention and giving our full commitment to your project. But what is Miles and why do we and those ‘buzz’ words matter? Why would you work with this group of creatives and forward-thinkers? What follows is a story of where we came from, who we are, and how we work. This is a story with lots of intricacies and learnings along the way, and hopefully with your interest to collaborate, we can together achieve and learn so much more.

Where does Miles come from?

It all started with two close friends. We've always had a nick for letting our creative minds flow by producing devised work we love(d). The occasional website, conceptual applications, and even flyers for school parties sparked our fire for design. Slowly but surely, we started to notice something brewing: the concept of helping one another attain their goals, wishes, and vision through a digital canvas.

From that concept, we always wanted to stay true to our way of working, which we like to call jamming , like how the legendary jazz trumpeter Miles Davis did. It's a term we have held dearly from the beginning. It symbolises flexibility, open mindedness, and making sure you feel comfortable and assured when working with us. Miles, it's a name that embodies our potential for being different and innovative, all while jamming along.

Why do we matter?

We are a creative studio, and while that's not something out of the ordinary, the fact that we handle your project so carefully definitely is. We play this game with attention from the get-go, giving you a personal experience when creating digital products and experiences with our full-time dedicated Miles team at your disposal. More like a boutique than a full-blown agency.

We are a multidisciplinary team. Ranging from great graphic designers to web developers, we are able to control most aspects of every project within Miles. Next to that, it powers us to collaborate with like minded individuals.

We follow a proven method that always works when we are fabricating the projects for our clients. We work agile first through the discovery, design, and development phases, all while making use of Atom-based design principles. This allows us to be flexible and keep our focus on delivering the attention that's needed to a project, while also aiming to exceed client expectations.

Who’s this group of creatives that call themselves “Miles”?

Each and every person on our team has an affection for and a specialisation with a certain discipline. From designing battle-tested interfaces to writing the cleanest code, this combination of amazing, interesting, and above-all ambitious people on the Miles team would be very keen to meet you:

Matthew Wilson

Founder & developer

Miles is absolutely one of my biggest joys in life, with an ever growing team, clientele and amazing projects we get to work on. Making sure everyone within the team is in their power to be as creative as possible is one of the biggest accomplishments so far. And yeah, I really like dinosaurs :P

Ezra Immanuel

Founder & designer

Hi, I'm Ezra, a creative who especially likes to make other people's concepts come to life. From concept to the visual end product. The hours that I'm not working on that, I spend a lot of time on music and can often be found in a record store.

Bas Wilson

Back-end developer

Someone who likes to face the unknown of tech with an “anything can be done mindset”

Anne Cecchi

UX designer

We are all a very close team! There is a 'work hard, play hard' mentality that ensures that we want to get the best out of every project together. We work on many different projects, so the work is never boring. Every customer comes with their own challenges, delivering a product that works for customers and users really gives energy!

Nick Voerman

Front-end developer

It's always fun at Miles! Besides that, we also work hard. And play hard! I have been interested in computers from a young age. I like programming, cars and motorcycles, fishing, gym, traveling and having fun with friends and my girlfriend.

So, in short.

We like to put our thinking into your vision. From websites to apps, brand identities to platforms, and anything and everything in between, we apply our special Miles touch that we find very exciting. You can always be sure that you belong to the Miles community of amazing and interesting people. We'd love to know what you're thinking about and what we can do to help you work towards fulfilling your vision.

Keep an eye on our website and Instagram channel for that we are expanding our community by reaching out with editorial and informative content such as customer cases, thoughts and podcasts.

How did we implement an Agile way of working?

June 3, 2022

SCRUM was developed in the early 1990s. The philosophy behind it is founded on empiricism and asserts that knowledge comes from experience.
