The Art of Derek Brown


A little about me.


A little about me.

My name is Derek Brown, I'm a graphic designer and a pretty rad musician from East Tennessee. I studied Graphic Arts at the Tennessee Technology Center at Morristown (now known as Tennessee College of Applied Technology) and graduated in the winter of 2009. I then started working as an Ad Designer at the Special Publications department of a local newspaper, The Citizen Tribune.

I worked at the newspaper for a little over two years and was then offered a job as a Production Artist at The Tombras Group, an award winning advertising and marketing agency located in Knoxville, TN.

I have since then moved from the production team to being an Art Director//Designer on the design team.

As of 2019, I have been learning how to animate using After Effects for about three years now and slowly teaching myself how to use Cinema 4D as well.
