Create. Inspire. Produce.

Each and everyone of us has a unique purpose in life. As a creative producer, mine is to bring value to others through design thinking.

Smart phones give you an outlet; now you need to improve your brand image.

Lets face it, technology advances so quickly, it’s impossible and costly to keep up. Each year, the latest tech offers awesome new advances in mobile photography and content creation. AI enabled cameras, with limitless filters and options give you access to complete DIY digital media creation. But is that enough?

When practically everyone in your network has the same technology, filters, and camera, how will you stand out? With a professionally shot photo session, you can improve the quality of your brand image and separate your look from the mobile herd.

Take your image to the next level.

“My goal is simple, help others create impactful and compelling content by doing what I love the most, CREATE!”

Leif Derrickson

Thank you for taking the time to visit my space, I am excited to share my vision with you! I am a multi-media designer and freelance entrepreneur currently located in Hillsboro, Oregon. My goal is simple, help others create impactful and compelling content by doing what I love the most, CREATE! I have been working in the creative design field for more than ten years, first starting out as a graphic designer at Walsworth Publishing Company, and now venturing into my own creative freelance company, L2D Media. Over the years, I have dabbled in many areas of multimedia, including: graphic design, illustration, photo and video, audio production, web design, animation, and much more. With a “can do” mindset, I seek to understand more about every level of design so that I can apply them more broadly to the whole.
