Designer Showcase: Grant Friedman

This is the first post in a new series that we’ll be trying here on We’ll be showcasing individual designers and some specific pieces from their portfolio. The intent is to provide exposure for the designers, provide inspiration for readers, and to help everyone get connected.

The showcase posts will include some basic information on the designer, but rather than having a full interview, the focus will be on their work. At the end you’ll find places to connect with the designer online. Hopefully this is a good networking resource for anyone who is looking to build stronger connections with other designers.

The first designer being showcased is Grant Friedman of Colorburned.
