Derek’s love for design started with his love for art, the passion that soon developed into design, illustration and music. Although Derek’s not much of a book worm, he’s always had a passion for print design. Critique, new ideas and making something out of nothing is what drives him most. Outside of design Derek loves spending time with his wife and three kids, playing sub genres of metal on his 7 string guitar, and dreaming of future tattoo endeavors.
