Mint Inc. Fresh ideas in modern home accessories.
Mint Inc is a design collective founded by Alberto Mantilla, Anthony Baxter and Scott Henderson. Mint was formed simply to create an outlet for creative ideas that are generated by the three founding designers in the course of their professional careers when a client commission may not be present.
The Mint name was chosen because "mint" connotes freshness as in the literal sense of the mint plant, but also because it has industrial meanings, as in the place or source of manufacture and invention. Mint is "Refreshing".
Alberto Mantilla was born in Bogotá, Colombia and graduated with a BA in Industrial Design from Javeriana University in 1983. Alberto worked for Henry Dreyfuss Associates before co-founding Curve ID with Anthony Baxter in 1994. Curve ID is a design consultancy with a wide range of well known clients including: Nike, John Deere, Pyrex and Colgate Palmolive. In 2001 he co-founded Mint Inc with Anthony Baxter and Scott Henderson.
Alberto's work has been the subject of numerous design articles including TIME Magazine's "Best Designs of the Year" article in 1998 and has won many design awards including two prestigious IDEA awards, ID Magazine's "Design Distinction" award, and a Colombian Lapiz de Acero award.
