Director of UX Research, Indeed Enterprise at Indeed.com
Zach has been a true pleasure to work with at Indeed. He always delivered quality, thoughtful design work that enhanced our startup product brand and gave our UX the polish of a much more mature product. He showed a strong spirit of partnership with UX Research, and it was always heartening to see how our reported user needs and perspectives were reflected in his work.
Creative Director, Wistia
Zach helped my team create the visual brand identity for one of our core content properties—a podcast. He designed the show artwork (including unique cover art for each episode), created promotional assets for all social platforms, and helped with digital campaigns outside of social. An attentive listener and great designer, Zach worked hard to experiment and incorporate our feedback, and ultimately helped us create a strong brand identity for our show. Would absolutely work with Zach again.
Senior UX Director, Indeed;
Head of Design, Creative Market
Zach worked with the Creative Market team for over a year as a contractor, and produced a variety of creative and design projects for the brand across marketing, product, and community initiatives. Zach has a ton of passion that he brings to the table. He cares deeply about the team and community of users that he produces work for. While at CM, he gave holistic, constructive feedback on team projects, company objectives and brand culture. Zach imparted a double-dose of user empathy and perspective into every project conversation and meeting that he participated in, and was very easy to work with. He helped our team stay focused on the member’s experience of Creative Market, and gave thoughtful feedback about how various projects and choices impact the user’s experience and perception of the Creative Market brand.
Overall, Zach covered many of our bases, and had a willingness to jump in and help on whatever was needed by the team for the betterment of the company.
Owner, Foster Commerce
Zach designed a course-based website for a client of mine. "Easy to read" and "navigate" were the goals. He managed to make those happen and make it extremely beautiful. The site is still heavily used after more than four years and hasn't once needed a single facelift or design modification. That's impressive.
