Z Squared Design is a multi-disciplinary design company that specializes in Brand Identity. Our work has the power to enrich your brand, influence decision makers, create customers, and ultimately bolster your bottom line. Every brand has a unique story to tell and we can help you convey yours in innovative and thought-provoking ways. We can help you tell your story in ways that will demand attention, engage your prospects, set your tone and make your message crystal clear along all of the brand’s touchpoints. Our work will represent your brand with distinction and integrity while making a lasting impression that will not be forgotten.

Z Squared Design is Dave Zauhar and associates. Located in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1998, we have worked with local and national clients of all sizes, from startup ventures such as Avant Energy Solutions, The New York Rock Exchange and Emily N Chocolates, on up to the high-falutin heavyweights such as Target, Logitech and Peet’s Coffee. Prior to 1998, Dave Zauhar was Principal of Minneapolis-based Zauhar Design.

Z Squared Design’s work has been recognized by some of the industry’s most respected competitions including Communication Arts, the Type Directors Club, Graphis, Step Inside Design and HOW, among others. While winning awards is never a priority, we approach every project with the mindset that we’re going to knock it out of the park. This not only ensures work that we will be proud of, but more importantly ensures work that you will be proud of. Work that will bust its butt for you 24/7 and never complain about the hours. This recognition also helps us attract top-notch creative talent to our network, which in turn benefits all parties involved.

We work on projects that are essential to the building of a successful brand. Projects that increase brand recognition and awareness, cultivate customer loyalty and help build brand equity. These projects include Brand Strategy, Brand Identity, Logos, Naming, Packaging, Collateral, Retail Graphics, Posters, Illustration, Environmental Design, Signage, Icons, Advertising, Digital and Web Design.

Whether you’re starting a new venture and want to set your industry on fire, you have a great product that needs help flexing its muscles or you’re simply having a Brand Identity crisis, let’s connect. We’re looking forward to it.
