CAITLIN DERER — CREATIVE

I am an integrated creative originally from Canada, living and working in London, UK.

With a Bachelors Degree of Visual Communications and Design from the Alberta College of Art & Design,
I have experience with agency, in-house and freelance work. I primarily work with fashion brands, where my interest in editorial design and art direction is put to good use. My background in print design is complimented by my digital interest and knowledge to drive successful, integrated campaigns for a variety of international clients.
