Deryk is a very talented and intelligent individual with tremendous illustration / graphics skills and contributed greatly to the project with his creative ideas and storytelling abilities.

Deryk Ouseley is one of those rare individuals who consistently delivers above and beyond expectations. Deryk worked with me at the kidsmediacentre as a student several years ago and supported a number of children’s media research projects while managing his very demanding course load. He delivered great insights, delivered on all milestones and worked well with team. I was impressed enough with Deryk that I’ve since hired him as a UX designer on several other children’s research projects – The World of PIA and MagnusMode. I can’t say enough good things about him!!

Deryk is a talented designer with significant range in breadth of skillset and target audience. We have worked in the production of graphic arts as well as the creation of original illustrations. Whether it is branding, an online immersive world for young children or eLearning modules for adults, he is able to use visual language to create a story, support an idea or explain a concept.
~ Susan Cohen, CEO / Digital Learning/ Colleague & Client
“Deryk is a star talent and from the time I interviewed him to the end of our project, he was such a pleasure to work with. His ability to tackle any challenge with the utmost creative solutions was incredible and his work was always of highest quality and care. He is able to take lots or little direction, applying leadership and opening up his process to collaborate with larger teams, based on the needs of the project and the sometimes crazy deadlines. And amongst the craziness of deadlines his humour and happiness always put a smile on our faces!”
