Small studio. Big ideas.
SZoom Design is a small design studio based in Stratford, Ontario. Being a small studio allows us to have a dynamic relationship with every project. We undertake a range of projects, drawing on external resources when needed. Our professional network base includes business developers, project managers, designers, copywriters, animators and programmers.
A cozy studio to meet, plan, create and play. Many clients have enjoyed an espresso-fuelled brainstorming visit to initiate projects, or fine-tune designs. We also enjoy working outside of the office. Equipped with laptop, full graphics software and innovative minds, we are ready to travel to your office and work with you or your team.
We celebrate creativity in our everyday lives and it fuels us.
