Design influences the world around us every day. We chat with designers, illustrators, photographers, and others to find out the stories that made them want to get into the creative world as a career, and talk with chefs, bartenders, restaurateurs and anyone else that uses their creative talent about how they use their creative talents to design their menus and restaurants.
If you have suggestions for guests or questions about the show, please reach out to us on Twitter @feastondesign.
Welcome to the Creative South Podcast! I’m your host, Jason Frostholm. My guest this week is Derek Friday, an environmental graphic designer based out of Boulder, Colorado and Hamburg, Germany. We talk about how he shifted from essentially getting a degree in architecture into doing environmental graphic design, moving around and splitting his time between the US and Germany, and the importance of relationships and collaboration, all right after this.
