About our Company
Good design is obvious. Great design is transparent.
Tiny Team, Sweet Savings
The cost savings logically gets passed down to you.
It’s tempting for companies to think that it takes a big marketing agency to handle their design needs. Yet, big agencies often fall prey to inefficiency and inflexibility. It's harder to find out who is accountable for a particular aspect of a project when it’s been broken down into many different pieces and farmed out to different employees, as big agencies often do. With a smaller boutique marketing firm like Zhappo Studios, a few people are doing it all. Zhappo Studios works with fewer clients to give you the individualized attention you need. If you want something changed, Zhappo Studios can quickly adapt since the chain of command is much more direct. You also have the flexibility of picking and choosing which services you want, rather than signing up for a package that contains many items you don’t feel you want or need.
Also, big marketing agencies have big overheads. They are staffed with salaried employees who require vacation time, health care and benefits. They work in big offices with expensive rents and costly utilities. By contrast, Zhappo Studios works in a small office with 5 to 10 contractors. You’re not paying to connect with the agency secretary when you call Zhappo Studios; you’re speaking directly with the CEO. You’re not paying for human resources to find you the best talent; Zhappo Studios' talent has been hand-selected for you. Logically, the cost savings gets passed down to you.
Award winning creative with a passion for technology and design.
Rob Dudley, as an art director, visually defined newspapers around the world, and as the Creative Director of Zhappo Studios defines website design and marketing materials for a large and diverse client list. One of the early adopters of web publishing, Rob not only has made the transition from print to web smoothly and with style, he has continued as a highly regarded print designer for over thirty years. This is because he believes that new media does not replace old media—rather the Internet and print have converged. Rob’s approach to content and design is now encapsulated in Zhappo Studios, a firm he started in March 1999. He believes technical skill is mastery of complexity, while creativity is mastery of simplicity.
