With people searching for a new meaning in their lives, organizations need to transform. I MILLE does this by profession: an independent creative consultancy that, on a global level, specializes in strategy, branding, experience and digital product design, communication, and marketing. In other words, the organization aims to help brands define and communicate the contribution they make to our lives and the world around us. Founded in 2004, I MILLE has offices in Milan, Rome, Trento, Madrid, Santiago de Chile, and São Paulo with a total of 120 employees. Among the characteristics that distinguish I MILLE from its competitors is candor: with a culture-based approach, the agency's professionals study, prepare, and always tell the client the truth, even if it’s not what they want to hear.
Then there’s another one of our formats valued by I MILLE: Learnspaces. The agency's Leads participated, and will continue to participate, in our initiatives that offer three days of meetings, debates, talks, and opportunities for in-depth exploration on specific topics. I MILLE proposed this not as a corporate "benefit," but as a genuine project: a way to step out of the comfort zone, experiment, learn, and bring back everything to basics as lessons and new energy.
During Cosmico's Learnspaces, it really feels like landing on another planet. These are occasions where it seems like you’re doing anything but working, but then in the end you realize that you’ve learned a great deal, that you’ve met exceptional people, and that you’ve listened to leadership stories that you’ll often think of when you go back to doing your job. Cosmico is proof that shifting, moving, changing settings, and breaking the routine doesn't harm your work but strengthens and enhances it.

Cosmico and I MILLE look in the same direction: they talk about the change in the world of work and try to understand and analyze it. We both strive to do so starting from what we ourselves are putting into play now, from our own way of changing. Because we’re also part of the change: we see a movement forward, and we don't just want to follow or go along with it. We’d like to try to anticipate it. And perhaps, to some extent, guide it.
With 13 teams of multidisciplinary designers and over 100 people spread over four locations (Lugano, Milan, Rome, and San Francisco), Sketchin is the strategic design studio that operates globally to create the human experiences of the future. It’s an agile and efficient company that interprets technology and works to build a world where, through design, it can make everyone's experiences simpler and more enjoyable. Sketchin helps companies shape their future by releasing new products and services, supporting them in the evolution of their organizations, and creating inclusive physical/digital experiences to build sustainable value that lasts over time.
To be a surfer among surfers. That’s The Wave, the digital agency that combines design and coding to create distinctively unique, easily recognizable, and high-performance digital products. With offices in Catania and Milan, The Wave puts its digital talent, its “surfers,” at the center of every project. It’s different from its competitors because it focuses heavily on the utmost fluidity of processes: designers and developers work side by side to make pixel perfect experiences, always maintaining their commitment to the technical implementation of the product. In other words, The Wave isn’t an agency that only does design, it proposes a project that's completely fluid and is executed exactly as it was presented during the design approval phase.
Flatmates is an agency that helps companies work with creators, especially in implementing influencer marketing campaigns and producing content that speaks the language of social media. The Flatmates team predominantly works remotely, which is why Marcello Ascani, co-founder and CEO of Flatmates Agency as well as full-time YouTuber, chose the Cosmico Workspace. Making time for oneself is still essential even for a digitally-oriented company that operates remotely. Making time means recreating the conditions that often lead to spontaneous relationships during a break in the office, which are vital for team cohesion.
