Derek Wendt is an architectural designer and illustrator. In January 2016, he joined Alliiance while maintaining his independent design services at Derek simply. Derek studied Architecture and earned his Masters from the University of Detroit Mercy. His work experiences comprised from Walt Disney World Resort, IDEO, Detroit Works Project, Stantec, AIAS, and Katherine Frank Creative, Inc. In 2012, Derek moved to Minneapolis from Grand Rapids, Michigan. He derived his love of architecture from Legos, SimCity, Mark Kistler’s Imagination Station, and visiting sport stadiums. Being a deaf architect has helped Derek develop an appreciation for the art of sensorial space planning - which was attributed to his thesis on aural architecture and work at Disney. He continues to be an advocate of artistic design that is impactful to the emotions and the senses. Outside of work, Derek is a travel enthusiast. You can spot him at musicals, Packer games, microbreweries, bike riding, and mountain climbing. He also enjoys freehand drawing and creating birthday cards.
