About Us

DPI Graphic Design is made up of a talented graphic designer, Derek Payne. He acquired DPI from his big brother, Ivory Payne, also a graphic designer. Both of them established an interest in the publishing field through the efforts of their father, a current newspaper publisher in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  Derek worked as an architectural and engineering technician with several of Columbus's top firms for over 13 years. After becoming dissatisfied with "Corporate America," he combined his background and love for design to serve the Columbus, Ohio community. He has one mission in mind: creating functional, dynamic graphics and web applications — that produce results and meet client needs. It's that simple. 

Derek has been providing a diverse group of clients with creative designs and customized business solutions since 2002. Since then he has been fortunate to establish a client base in other Ohio cities and several states including Georgia, Louisiana, Kentucky, Minnesota, North & South Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama and Texas.
