Company

About zu

We are zu, a digital agency. For over 16 years we’ve been using skill and imagination to build things for the web and mobile platforms. Our team is made up of craftsmen—experts in strategy, design and development—who take pride in their work, creating pixel-perfect websites and applications for our clients.

What We Do

We use technology, creative thinking and collaboration to build smart, elegant solutions. We help businesses and organizations of all sizes communicate with their customers, their investors and even themselves. In short, we build digital things for mobile platforms and the web.

Our Approach

Collaboration

We believe in close collaboration – a partnership – with our clients, as we strive to understand exactly who they are and what they need. They are involved at every step, as we develop the idea and see it through to execution, adapting to their feedback and priorities on the fly with ease.

Craftsmanship

We believe in the fine art of digital creation and we approach projects with a builder's eye. Our goal is always to deliver rock-solid strategy, pixel-perfect design and flawless code. We take a lot of pride in our work and the things we make, we'll accept nothing less than the best.

Technology

We don't believe in using technology for technology's sake, we believe in using the right tools for the job. We make ourselves knowledgeable in everything, so we can make informed decisions. We also know the difference between a "real trend" and "really trendy," which is why our mobile team already has five years of experience building for modern devices.
