Derek Moss


  1. What is your name / organization / title?

    Derek Moss

  2. What motivated you to become a maker?

    The looks on someone’s face whenever you create something they really enjoy.

  3. Looking back on the early stages of your journey, what advice would you give yourself now?

    Nothing will ever be perfect, and there will never be a “right time” to start.

  4. What is your favorite thing you’ve ever made? Why?

    Everything new thing I create is my favorite until the next new thing. Right now it’s my banana bread.

  5. What’s the next evolution for you (or your industry) going to look like?

    I’m currently branching out into more hands on things like illustration and baking, while design itself is looking to go all digital. We are needing to know not only how to design a brochure, but how to build a website, use social media, do small illustrations, and understand marketing.

  6. Who would you partner with (living or dead) for your dream collaboration? And what would you work on together?

    I think it’d be fun to collaborate with Musketon. A great illustrator that can put out some pretty powerful illustrations at times.

  7. You're on death row and it's time for your final meal. What'll ya have?

    Cheeseburger and fries.

  8. In a world where you have two hands, all of your pets and loved ones are safe, and your studio is on fire, what do you try to save?

    Laptop and iPad! Everything else can burn.

  9. What is one piece of pop culture (movie, tv, artwork, song, etc.) that no matter how many times you return to it you still draw excitement, movement, or inspiration?

    Over the Garden Wall. It is the only thing I watch once a year.

  10. I love useless facts. Impress me with a seriously useless fact!

    You can easily tell the difference between a Zwilling and a JA Henkels knife by the whether it has a twin logo or a single logo. Zwilling (meaning twins in German) has 2 figures in the logo, are high quality and made in Germany. Henkels knives have a single figure logo and are designed by Zwilling but are a value brand that are made in different factories around the word. Still good, just less quality.

  11. If you could try any profession other than your own, what would you choose to do?

    Baking 100%, it’s what I’m trying right now.

  12. What is your personal strategy/philosophy when it comes to using social media for your work?

    Don’t let social media control your career. It’s just an outlet to share work.

  13. Speaking of social media, where can people find you?
