Wanna know a little about me?

I am a artist
without illusion

Hello, I am Derrick Treadwell. This journey started with me as a child I leaned to play the piano then I picked up the guitar and joined my first band at 15 and painted, drew with chalk media, and developed motion graphics, so creativity is in my bones.

After 10 years of touring, recording [The Album "Know Thyself" written by me and our singer page, it is a 10 song EP], and traveling the I made a promise to myself, that if by 25 years old I wasn't financially stable I would go to college and get a job, and thus that is how this journey began. One night while eating dinner with my parents, we were trying to figure out what was my next move. My Stepfather suggested graphic design because I could still be creative though my band was no more, I had always created flyers, album covers and merchandise for my band and other local acts so it sounded legit. I went and checked it out and I saw that they offered web design and interactive media and I said, “That’s the future, I want to be part of that”.

So I Gradated with B.S.in Interactive Media and Web Designer from the Art Institute of Las Vegas where I learned the skills to do almost everything in the realm of digital media; video, photos, motion graphics, print, flash etc.. but after 2 long years one before I graduated and the second during first year out of school I realized I needed to master one thing and not just me ok at everything but true mastery of one form of art or design. Though I use other pieces of software when it is deemed necessary all are just tools to augment my designs.
