Joe Zeff Design

A boutique agency that blends software with storytelling, helping the world's largest companies tell better stories.

Our story . . .

Part of what makes us good at creating apps is our experience as designers, illustrators and animators. We're quite happy to take on projects for any medium.

Magazine covers

We've illustrated hundreds for the world's most prestigious magazines, blending computer-generated illustration with concepts that make people notice at the newsstand. 



Our clients are the biggest and best: BBDO Worldwide, Crispin Porter + Bogusky, DirecTV, Porsche, and others. Here's an M&M's campaign we illustrated, featuring KISS.


Corporate communications

We don't just make pretty pictures, we help Fortune 500 companies communicate. We've helped Unisys Corporation tell its story in a series of information-packed books, and we developed PepsiCo's global employment brand.


Information graphics

We combine illustration and information to help people understand how things work, whether it's architectural — that's our church-turned-studio below — or anatomical.


Data visualization

We can turn your spreadsheets and PowerPoint decks into inviting layouts that make information understandable and accessible.

Some of our more prominent pieces: Sister Act on Broadway and album artwork for Jay-Z, Kanye West and Ludacris.


Conceptual illustration

Computer-generated illustration that conveys smart ideas for magazine covers, annual reports, marketing, advertising and more.


Dimensional typography

We turn simple letters and numbers into works of art — for magazine covers, brand identities, corporate reports.
