Derek Friday is an award-winning designer and founder of Finndustry, an internationally accomplished, multi-disciplinary design shop based in Boulder, Colorado where he specializes in Experiential Design, Brand Identity & Collateral, Signage & Wayfinding Systems and Surface Pattern Design. When not in his studio, Derek can usually be found running, scrambling and gravel biking in the mountains with his dog Tilly.
