From the Desk of Jeffrey Zeldman

Hi, I’m Jeffrey, and I’ve been designing websites since 1995.

I’ve seen fads and patterns come and go. But the truth of design has never changed. You want people to connect emotionally with your product or service. I can help you make that happen. It’s what I do.

Forging a real connection takes honest communication, empathy, and fairness. It also takes passion for the work. You’ll notice it the first time we sit down to discuss your project. And five years from now, when your site is still satisfying you and your toughest customers.

When you hire me, you also hire the smartest and most talented designers, coders, and strategists I know.

Your project is serious. We both know that. So look around. Talk to other agencies and studios. Then please talk to me. You’ll be glad you did.
