Graphic Designer

Hi! My name's Derek and I'm a national award-winning graphic designer.

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Arizona State University with a Bachelor's in Graphic Information Technology where I specialized in Technical Imaging & Reproduction and 3D Graphics & Animation. Currently, I work full-time as a front-end web developer for the largest school district in Arizona, where I also previously worked as the district graphic designer in charge of all internal and external promotional and collateral materials.

In 2015, I was awarded the 2015 Award of Excellence in NSPRA’s Publications and Electronic Media Contest for my work on the KinderU Preschool Branding Initiative. In the previous year, I was also awarded a 2014 Award of Excellence recipient for work on the East Valley Academy brochure at Mesa Public Schools.

Aside from my full-time positions, I have also done creative projects in graphic and web design for local Arizona companies, Tequa Builders LLC, Southwest Commercial Solar and Verde Vintage & Thrift, Inc. as well as Arizona State University and Mesa Community College, Altitude Productions, Color Room Films, Teachers Moving On, FarSuperior Partners, Security Title Agency and various real estate companies.

I work on various platforms, but usually rely heavily on the Adobe Creative Suite / Cloud to get my projects done. I am an expert in:

*Adobe InDesign
*Adobe Illustrator
*Adobe Photoshop
*Adobe Acrobat Pro
*Adobe Lightroom
*Adobe Bridge

My specialities include, but are not limited to:

*Corporate Branding
*Logo / Identity Creation
*Print and Web Advertising
*Digital Illustration

If you're looking for someone to help with your next project, I'd love to work with you! Please take a look at my personal portfolio at and message me with any questions!
