Free Time Industries [FTI]
is a product design and concept company with a constructive-criticism approach. Kate Bailey [an industrial designer], Naomi Parker [a graphic designer], Ariana Budner [a print maker and master of art marketing], and Amber R Murray [an architect and architecture historian], joined forces to give their passion for aesthetics a focused outlet.

Product lines generally follow a theme - sometimes it is a material investigation, exploring the possibilities of them - and sometimes it is based on an inspiration, like the Seattle Library’s special collection. In every case however, there is emphasis on a line, rather than a singular product. This allows FTI to create a far reaching and dynamic dialog throughout concept development by tapping into the wide array of skill sets each member offers - they can literally design and produce anything.
