Mindel started his career working for renowned New York architecture firms such as Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill and Rogers, Butler, Burgun.

Shelton, Mindel & Associates work is constantly recognised by the industry: "Their renown has grown along with their client roster: Prominent shelter magazines frequently publish their residential projects, and it would be difficult to find a book on influential contemporary interiors that doesn't mention their work. Their contract projects include ocean liners, the world's largest disco, and corporate headquarters for Fila and Ralph Lauren... But regardless of the scale or nature of a project, they approach each one with the same discipline and insight, combining to achieve their trademark synthesis of architecture and design." David Perrelli, The Pennsylvania Gazzette.
Institutions such as The American Institute of Architecture, San Francisco Museum of Fine Arts, the National Academy of Design and the Houston Museum of Fine Arts have exhibited Shelton and Mindel's practice projects in both traveling and permanent exhibitions.
Their product design lines include collections for Knoll, Waterworks, Jack Lenor Larsen, V'Soske and Nessen Lighting.
