About Us

For over 15 years we have worked with clients to produce outstanding design work across printed, digital, and environmental media.

Based in Ithaca, NY, we have experience working with small and large agencies across the US and with clients ranging from global technology companies and world-renowned universities, to business start-ups, and non-profit organizations. No matter their size or industry, our clients appreciate our down-to-earth approach and positive results. We deliver creative, individualized design solutions along with the personal service and flexibility that comes from working with a small studio.

The Name

A nickname given to a founding member during their travels, Zanzinato represents the creative journey and the inspiration that’s found along the way. Each project is a journey of its own and an opportunity for learning, growth, and a fresh perspective. A blend of identity and locale, the name embodies many of our core values: exploration, creativity, openness, and individuality.

The Gate

The gate represents the transition between locations, states of mind, or ideas and concepts. It is a simple and powerful symbol, serving as both a welcome and point of reflection. Where have we been? Where are we now? Where are we going?
