About the speaker

Tony Diaz is the founder and President of Industry, a screen print shop and design studio.

Started in a garage in 2007, Industry has built a phenomenal reputation in the world of art and design. It has grown to employ over two dozen people who work to keep the art of screen printing alive and thriving in a digital world.

As an artist and an entrepreneur, Tony created a business that merged those identities, offering clients the professionalism of a big corporation with the artistry and passion of a small business. He is a key member of several artist communities, serving as a board member for the HOPE Outdoor Gallery and a partner and producer with Studio Gray for the design conference, CROP.

From a punk rock musician to a garage-based entrepreneur to the owner of a multi-million dollar company, Tony knows what it takes to create a business and a brand that surpasses even his own expectations. All you need is blood, sweat, and mostly tears.
