JZD in a nutshell . . . 

Busy, busy, busy . . .

Lots going on at Joe Zeff Design! We're closing another issue of Fast Company; launching a kids magazine on the iPad; creating an iPhone version of one of the world's best-known magazines; conducting a workshop on how to build apps; working with UCLA on a new tablet-based alumni magazine; tag-teaming with Pentagram on a digital edition of another magazine; an advertising campaign for a major television network; and preparing to launch three other large projects. Meanwhile, we break ground this weekend on expansion of our studio to accommodate our two newest employees — Ian Brown from Scientific American and Emily Ragle, a recent graduate of Maryland Institute College of Art — and whatever comes next.
