Ziba sends a holiday gift each year to their vendors and collaborators to show appreciation and reinforce relationships. 2010 saw Ziba shift its voice to the outside world, from a handful of curated statements to a creative chorus. We needed to showcase the diversity of expertise and perspectives to clients who often see only a portion of Ziba’s capabilities. As a personal gift, it needed to carry a human voice, and convey not only professional expertise but the values shared by Ziba’s people: an understanding of design’s emotional impact, an appreciation of narrative, and a deep respect for craft.
