At Virtuality we often require support from freelancers and working with Derek is an absolute pleasure.
Over the last couple of years he has become a highly valued contributor
to the company’s output, proving
he to be one of the most original creative thinkers and expert designers I have ever worked with. His lateral and intelligent thought process adds real value to the work we produce, impressing clients and colleagues alike.

Derek King has provided some incredibly innovative branding and marketing solutions for our company. In addition to being one of the most creative minds in design, he is 100% reliable, he is committed to the job
at hand and has made himself available to help us out in pressure situations. We have turned over all
of our presentation design work to Derek and we always get fantastic feedback from our clients and audiences at group presentations.
I would unreservedly recommend Derek if you are looking for a first class designer.
