Origin Design House
Hello! We’re Origin and we believe design is communication – it’s art with higher purpose, and it’s how you tell your customers and clients about your company, business & industry.
Origin is run by Derek Land, who has been a graphic designer since highschool and web designer since 2001. As a developer, Derek has managed projects for the NFL and NYS Tourism, and as a designer has handled projects for international clients and had his early Flash™ work (egads!) featured in design research projects in the UK.
Art is emotional expression; Design is an emotionally-targeted form of Art – targeted to reach customers and speak to their needs. Design is Art with commercial purpose.
Derek is passionate about design, coffee, and art and lives in western New York with his two cats, 17” MacBook Pro, and vintage Italian espresso maker.
