Hi, I'm Derek Little, a Creative Technologist with a passion for exploring emerging technologies and developing intelligent and engaging user experiences.

As both a designer and developer, I have a knack for navigating the sometimes disparate thought processes of business strategy, creative aspirations and technical know-how and bring a thoughtful, forward-thinking approach to any new project.

As a creative thinker and problem solver, I love the challenge of making new "things" to achieve client goals and have a proven track record of delivering successful websites, applications and rich media for such clients as Comcast, Disney, Kellogg's, Toys “R” Us, Levi's, Conde Nast, Doctors Without Borders and ASPCA.

LET'S COLLABORATE.

If anything here has piqued your interest, I'd be happy to talk further. I'm always looking for new opportunitites.
