MIR Consultants (formerly Digital Art & Design)
During the late 1980s, the use of computers become popular in graphics designing. Though computers were very expensive, and quality graphics software were hard to find, a few small firms started using computers for designing television commercials and video presentations. Digital Art & Design, started purely as a computer graphics firm. It was the brainchild of two computer enthusiasts; one a graphics designer, and the other, a computer programmer. On June 22, 1987, Digital Art & Design opened its office in a small rented house in Lahore, quickly establishing itself as one of the top computer graphics and animation companies in Lahore. Its clients included Pakistan Television and several private production companies.
In response to a growing demand of computer software in the small business market, Digital Art & Design started its software division in 1993. Within a short period of time it penetrated such markets as pharmaceutical, marketing and promotion, law firms, financial institutions and food industry. The next year, its software division also started importing software for popular machines such as IBM compatibles, Commodore and Atari. In 1995, Digital Art & Design closed its graphics division and directed all resources to computer hardware sale/maintenance, software and web development. During this time, Digital Art & Design added names like Centre for High Energy Physics (Punjab University), The Bank of Punjab, Brothers Group, Sanjan Nagar Institute of Philosophy & Art and Quest Financials to its client list.
On June 22, 2000, Mubashir Nabi Mir (who had acquired the sole proprietorship of Digital Art & Design) changed its name to MIR Consultants. Entering the new millennium and anticipating an enormous demand for IT in the small and medium business sector in Pakistan, MIR Consultants now directs its services towards corporate ICT training, designing and implementing ICT infrastructure and technologies, security systems, software and web development for SMEs
Entering its third decade on June 22, 2007, MIR Consultants look forward to serving its future clients and partners with the same dedication, enthusiasm and professionalism that has earned the trust of many before them.
