about

Peregon Creative is a one man show run by graphic artist, illustrator, and web designer, Derek Perez.


HOW IT ALL STARTED.
​​
After getting my B.F.A. in Graphic Design from Georgia Southern University, I started out as an unpaid intern at The Masquerade, a music venue in Atlanta, GA. I eventually earned a paid position as the in-house designer, which involved me designing event posters, flyers, and graphics. I say mostly because some of my other duties included being a "runner" for bands -- basically an errand boy. This led to a lot of interactions with up and coming musicians, where I forged relationships and started doing freelance work on the side. 

 
 

PURSUING THE DREAM.
After landing my first "adult" job, I became a specialist in e-commerce web design and user experience at a web design studio. I continued to do freelance on the side, which allowed me to stretch my artistic vision beyond my role as Senior Designer. After several years of juggling late nights and early mornings, it was time to leave my job to pursue my dream of running my own studio.


My vision became a reality in July 2017 when I officially launched Peregon Creative, LLC in Atlanta, Ga. This company was started with a mission to create great designs that inspire people and help brands, bands, and businesses reach their full potential.

Since it's inception, Peregon Creative has been fortunate to work with incredibly creative and talented clients. Some previous and current clients include Red Bull Sound Select, Live Nation, Gov't Mule, The Avett Brothers, Big Gigantic, The Infamous Stringdusters, The Floozies, The Motet, Keller Williams, Leftover Salmon, Railroad Earth, Zed's Dead, Lettuce, Ying Yang Twins, and more.

Derek Perez
Owner / Designer
When I'm not designing or creating art, I enjoy going to concerts, traveling with my girlfriend, Veronica, and visiting with family. My hobbies include collecting baseball cards, coins, rocks, and vinyl records. I'm a big fan of Dragonball Z, Game of Thrones, and anything Sci-Fi. Currently my favorite book is The Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho. This book literally changed my life and gave me the final impetus to start Peregon Creative.
