Kyle Derr’s Profile

After graduating from Texas State University in 1991, Kyle was brought on board to one of San Antonio’s largest advertising agencies to help rebuild its creative department. The agency tripled in size and scope during his tenure and the agency won multiple design awards for the first time since it began. Kyle later joined one of San Antonio’s largest design firms as a partner and helped oversee multiple accounts that included The San Antonio Spurs, The NCAA Final Four, GlobalScape Technologies, Texas Special Olympics, USAA and more.

Kyle officially launched Derrsign, Inc. in 2000 and moved his operations to Arizona. He again took on more customers and built a strong reputation in yet another region of the United States. As Derrsign grew in staff and customer-base, Kyle and his team worked successfully for a range of new clients that included Northern Arizona University, Arizona Snowbowl, The City of Flagstaff, Coconino County, Wiseman Aviation, Medi-Temp Technologies and more. While in Arizona, Kyle also taught the Senior level design course at Northern Arizona University where he was nominated by his students as New Adjunct Professor of the Year.

As Kyle’s family grew with two children, he returned to his roots in Texas.  Today, Kyle continues to service many of the same customers he’s had since the beginning, and works to build more relationships in the San Antonio-Austin corridor and beyond. These clients include The Miner Corporation, Barton Logistics, Big Bend Telephone Company, Zen Japanese Restaurants, San Antonio Sports Foundation, Team Housing Solutions The Gage Hotel and many more.

In addition to Derrsign’s direct customer base, he has a long-standing partnership with the strategic marketing and sales firm, Sales by 5. Together, Derrsign and Sales by 5 have serviced Tesoro Petroleum, Mycom Refrigeration, Wells Fargo Advisors, TMI Episcopal and Magi Real Estate to name a few. Kyle has also partnered with Internet Direct, a web development firm, on additional customers in order to bring a powerful combination of technological savvy and creative leadership.

Kyle maintains a great passion for design and branding. Yet he still knows where his real true love resides – with Jeanne Derr, his wife of 14 years and his two beautiful children, Jaxson and Emma.
