We’re inspired by good work in all its forms, creativity in unusual places, people who think differently, and organizations willing to take calculated risks.
Strike up a casual conversation with a stranger and you may well find you share a good friend or favorite experience. Kismet? Coincidence? We’re not sure, but we do know that same, wonderful connection often happens in design. Gather a team of designers, writers and clients for a brainstorming session and they naturally bring diverse backgrounds and perspectives to the table. The result is a far richer journey into the communication challenge. Last summer EnZed Design welcomed a new talent to our team. Peter Williams was a recent design school graduate with a keen eye for iconography and a keen
We were fortunate to meet Sharon Repass, a creative mind looking to realize her dream of owning a retail store. She’d just found the perfect spot for Blackbird General Store in Calabasas, California, when she found us. We created the logo, packaging, gift boxes, and signage for her fall launch. The project caught the eye of Sabine Lenz, Paper Queen and Founder of PaperSpecs.com. We were all aflutter when she chose to feature it in her Inspiration column.

Summer of 2015 was a busy season, so busy we are blogging about it in November! EnZed Design hired Ligia Teodosiu, designer and talented illustrator, Helen finished her term as president of AIGA Colorado, and we moved to a new beautiful space at 2626 West 32nd Avenue, just around the corner from the old Tejon location.

And lest we forget, the North High School tennis courts are just steps away. Helen

How often does a design group like EnZed have the opportunity to develop a fresh identity for a program merging 19th Century lessons and 21st Century leadership? The result, I’m delighted to say, has garnered enough participant interest to fill all 2015 Experience sessions and cause more to be slated. (It’s also led to our being asked to develop special materials to help FCCS celebrate their 40th anniversary and re-energize their conference offerings.) In brief, The Gettysburg Experience brings
On a sunny Sunday afternoon in June, the ladies and I gathered at the Brown Palace for high tea. We had our pretty summer dresses on and arrived to a room filled with roughly 200 gorgeous people looking freshly scrubbed and happy. Our plates were ready, full of adorable tiny sandwiches and sweet petit fours. The tiny purple macaroon immediately caught my eye, topped with a blackberry and a little gold leaf garnish. I was saving that one for last. “I want to nominate you for the Aspire award and I need a bit of information to complete the entry.”
