What our clients are saying
Iowa-Illinois Safety Council has worked with Zao525 – Samantha Boyd for over two years, working with our organization to achieve greater brand recognition. In addition Zao525 serves as a consultant with IISC’s new website. Samantha has done amazing work for IISC and worked well with me and IISC’s director of communications.

Zao525 has been instrumental in helping my team build the CSAFE (Center for Statistics and Applications in Forensic Evidence) brand and brainstorm solutions which address our specific needs. Their team is responsive, creative and professional at every turn. I continue to rely on them for help telling our story, and consider Zao525 a key partner in our success.
Zao525 has been unlike any other marketing partner we have worked with. They are so personal but very professional and well organized. The number one thing I appreciate is the value they place around building project timelines – accountability becomes shared and well communicated. The first time I worked with Zao525, I was impressed with how important it was for them to fully understand our brand before developing anything.
Samantha and her team are incredible! They exceed my expectations every time! I’m so thankful I’ve found Zao525 to creatively and professionally design and develop my brand!
Zao525 was great to work with. Samantha was very professional and responsive. The quality of work was excellent, and I was very satisfied with the product they produced. I look forward to working with them again in the future.

It was great working with Zao525 on designing our logo. We had very specific requests and ideas about what we were wanting and our final logo is absolutely it! We even changed our minds and switched gears, but Zao525 was so accommodating and patient as we worked toward getting it just right. It was a great experience, and we got exactly what we wanted.
We are very pleased with the new logo and the ads and rack cards that Zao525 designed for us. They really listened to what we wanted, added their professional expertise, and made it happen.
Samantha Boyd is excellent to work with and the team she has to support our marketing and publication needs is second to none. I highly recommend Zao525.
We have been very pleased with the projects Zao525 has helped us with. They meet deadlines and work hard to get them right. I will use their services again.
Samantha and her team listen to you and are great at capturing the vibe you want to project out to the world on the website they create for you. Their customer service is also outstanding. They quickly made changes I needed after my website was done.
