Derek Wakeen

I have 8 years of professional experience as a designer focused on branding and art direction. My creative process is about merging simplicity with character and keeping things clean. I certainly love all aspects of design and try to use every tool I can to make my clients happy. In the end, brands are the people and products behind them, so building great creative relationships is what I love to do.

In 2009 I graduated with a BFA in Industrial Design from the College for Creative Studies in Detroit. Since then, I've had the pleasure of working with established companies such as Adidas, Converse, MINI, Nissan, and many great agencies on the east coast. I love living in New England, snowboarding and exploring the world with friends.

When I'm not designing, I make music and illustrations under the moniker Olli Brix and use Brix Sound Lab for my bigger catalog of sounds for film makers. Feel free to contact me if you think I'd be a good fit for any current or future projects.
