I am Derek Mohr, a designer & developer living in Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA. I moved as far north as I could think of in 2007, to go to Northern Michigan University. I lived up there, ended up becoming really obsessed with Graphic Design (and the newly-emerging “web designer” possibilities), and graduated with a BFA in 2011. I’ve had different titles of designer and developer since then, with varying levels of freelancing in between. I’ve currently been in my dream spot of having web development fun at Mighty in the Midwest, with a side of logo design on my own.
I also learned how to travel by backpack and hostel in 2017, and was all the way up to my 10th country before Covid struck. I don’t think there’s a more alive feeling in the world than being in the middle of a city you’ve never been with a group you’ve only just met. I can’t wait to get back out there!
Outside of designing, coding, and traveling around, I enjoy space (astrophysics, not astrology), ice hockey, comedy, soccer, and of course, wine.
