Fifteen years ago, EnZed Design launched into business with a single PowerMac and a stash of curly paperclips. Just days before, I had trotted downtown to make Helen Young DBA official, convinced that doing so on my 29th birthday might add some Sagittarian energy to the new venture.
Something evidently clicked, be it cosmic or commercial. Since that day in December 1996, we’ve opened 920 job numbers, amassed more than 2,000 fonts, designed 52 sheets of wrapping paper and collaborated with top talent from Denver and beyond. But most important, we’ve connected with extraordinary friends. Clients. Colleagues. Partners. People who make the work rewarding and the fun flow.
On February 29th, we celebrated the year’s bonus day with a party: Leaps & Bounds. More than 60 of our favorite people came out to toast our milestone. It was a wonderful way to thank all of you for your leaps of faith over the years, and acknowledge your contribution to our longevity. After all, EnZed was built primarily on referrals from our wonderful network of clients and friends.
Our clients, Tony and Amy Pasquini, were gracious hosts at their newly opened Pasquini’s Pizzeria in Cherry Creek. (Go for the pizza, but stay for the cannoli!) Our event photographer took a leap of her own that day, officially venturing out as Lynn Clark Studios. Lynn was one of my first clients and I was excited to return the favor. It seemed very fitting for our celebration to be a part of their new beginnings.
During our 15th year, we intend to share our joy and appreciation with you...you who have helped make EnZed Design an enduring success.
We hope you enjoy our meanderings in 2012 and for many years to come.
