On a mission
Our name, Zao525, represents our philosophy, how we do business, and what we believe about our clients. We love small businesses. They deserve the same branding and marketing power as multimillion-dollar organizations, and we exist to give them just that — on the small-business budget. Working with Zao525 can help you at any stage, with any need, to reach any goal.
Yes, we can help you with all of these
What our clients are saying
As an entrepreneur, I always want to tackle completing every aspect of my business. I am so grateful that I brought in a Zao525 to help with my branding. Where we ended up would not have been reached doing it on my own. Glad to have them part of my “team.”
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.
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. I highly recommend Zao525 and Sam if you are looking to enhance your organization’s brand.

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!
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.
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.

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.
Zao525 has been a critical part of my recent business growth. Samantha Boyd understands the marketing and social media landscape. She understands my mission and my specific brand so she brings ideas to my attention before I think of them. She is able to interpret my need and make it into a brochure design, or new functionality on my web site. I have compared my site to others in my industry, and I truly feel mine stands out as more visual, higher quality, and targets my market very effectively.

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 are establishing a presence for a company that has limited visibility. Zao525 worked with us to develop a logo. They listened to our needs and parameters and within a few days they delivered a logo that will serve us well.
