What are they saying about Derek Brigham?

"D, Just wanted to let you know that online business and the gym is better than ever and I couldn't have done it without your help. The speed at which you get stuff done for me, the quality of your work and the fact that you are always able to bring what I have in my head to life has been an absolute Godsend.

My blog is now getting more traffic than almost anyone else in the entire industry! I was pretty shocked by that. Again, in large part to your help and making everything I do look so good.So I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know that what you have done for me has paid off in a major way and also just tell you how much I appreciate your help and how grateful I am.  Thanks, brother!"

"Derek Brigham is without a doubt the best graphics guy in the business and always goes the extra mile whenever I need him. I'm not the easiest client to work with and always want things done perfectly, as fast as humanly possible. Fortunately for me Derek does just that. He saves me time, money and frustration because he gives me exactly what I want, faster than I could have ever expected and it always comes out far better than what I had pictured in my mind.

Finding Derek has honestly been one of the best things that's happened to my business in the last five years, and I will continue to use him for every graphics job I have long into the future."

Dude, can I just say—wow.

Just got the book, and what you have done is totally awesome. It's brought tears to my eyes. Not just the obviously MASSIVE effort you've put in here--I know what you got handed was a very complex mess--but the creativity and visual sense you have applied here is off the friggin' scale man.

I really sweated over the format for this book, but you have improved everything...everything. It's amazing to look at.

You are a genius man. A god damned genius. You've made the book a thing of beauty! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Derek solidified my brand identity through these creative designs, bringing the glam, and glitz of this fierce FIT DIVA front and center!!  

Thank you Derek!

—Tina Lorenz, Tina Writes: Persuasive Words That Make You Money,

To say that I am astonished with Dereks design would be a lie because I already knew going into this that he was THE MAN FOR THE JOB!....Just Look at his portfolio! I gave Derek an original idea and he not only lived up to the exceptions on the creativity side but I'd give him a 10/10 for customer service. Responding swiftly to my "brainstorming rapid fire style" emails and calling me on the phone to ensure we were on the same page, he went above an beyond of what is expected from a graphic artist. Dereks work is not something that a price tag could be put on similarly to a tattoo which will stay with you forever!!

He really understands how to create designs that resonate with a market and bring up the kinds of emotions in the customer that the business owner is going for. This is a rare ability.

Derek is flexible and reasonable to work with, he gets the work done on time and gives you at least three times your moneys worth.

No wonder I know so many people who have recommend him, and after working Derek I am proud to recommend him as well for anyone looking for graphic design work, He is without a doubt the best there is."

—Susan Hill, owner of, 2010 Internet Marketer of the Year

I initially approached Derek with a pretty clear idea of what I wanted, and he not only delivered that but also came up with some amazing ideas that took a good look and knocked it out of the park.

I can't stress how impressed I am with the quality of his work, his attentiveness to detail, and his SPEED.  Dealing with graphic designers can often be a frustrating process, but I can't wait to do a bunch more work with Derek!"

—Isaac Wilkins, M.Ed, CSCS, NSCA-CPT, Relentless Strength Training, Got Strength Blog, New Poly Math

"I've been self-employed for nearly 20 years now, and I have worked with more than my fair share of graphic artists.  In all those years, I haven't met anyone who had even a tenth of the talent that Derek possesses.  He has an uncanny ability to take what I am saying and turn it into something even better than the picture in my head.  His artwork is not only beautiful, it is eye-catching and memorable. 

The difference in my logo before and after I met him is astonishing.  I finally have a brandable visual identity that will help my business grow.   Derek is not only a brilliant artist, he is also fast, accessible, and very dedicated to his craft.  I don't think I've ever had to wait more than 3 hours for a reply from him.  His professionalism, combined with his artistic gift, makes him the best source for any kind of graphic arts project.  Thanks for everything, Derek!"

Derek was fast and flexible in working with me.  I never had to wait a day for him to send me My designs.

His work is the best I have ever seen,  I look forward to more projects with Derek.  I highly recommend Derek he is great!!!"

—Sylvia Camarillo - Founder, and
