When I decided to expand my recreational baking activity into a commercial enterprise, I learned that in addition to a good recipe, much more would be needed to market my product: a business logo, website, packaging, labels, and bar code, just to name several.  Marketing aspects were daunting, since this was all new to me.
Upon a recommendation from another local entrepreneur, I contacted ZGH design to get started.  From my first meeting with Tom Hamann, I was confident that he would be the one to get the job done. He listened to my ideas, concerns and expectations, and was willing to incorporate them until a final logo design evolved.  Tom also did his own research to make sure the outcome was a cultural diffusion that embraced my background and my actual living style. The end result was the perfect logo, followed by eye catching labels for the package.  In addition, I was very pleased with how promptly he followed up with me throughout the process.  I am looking forward to working with ZGH design again as I expand with different flavored  cheese bread products.

For several years we struggled with a website that was difficult to manage and provided minimal technical support when it came to addressing issues. ZGH has delivered a refreshing change. Not only have they designed a website that truly reflects the spirit of Camp Fido Dog Daycare, but they created a website that is easy to manage and update. Whenever there has been an issue or problem, ZGH has been quick to respond. At Camp Fido we strive to provide a premium service for our customers. Its a pleasure to do business with a company that provides that same level of service.

ZGH Design created our website bringing it to a whole new level of design and functionality...and it really works! Tom Hamann's innate sense of graphic design blends prefectly with his ability to plan, program and launch Web-based media. I would recommend ZGH Design to anyone seeking a creative and original website.
