Ten Years of human-centered design

ZoCo Design is 10 years old!

That’s right, it’s been an entire decade since we set out on a mission to prove that design can do more—Ten years as champions for human-centered tech.

But we were thinking, what does the “10-year anniversary” milestone really mean to us? It’s more than just a birthday celebration. Actually, it’s a hell of a lot more. It’s a celebration of human-centered design, which is at the core of all that we do. From our work, our approach, process, mindset, culture, and everything in between. And it deserves to be celebrated and shared by everyone. Our clients, friends, employees, and the people whose lives we hope to improve is the reason we’ve found success. We’re beyond grateful to everyone who’s been a part of our journey and we celebrate you.

The past ten years we’ve worked hard to design a world with greater experiences, connections, and outcomes, and it’s been a blast. We hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as we have, and that you will join us in celebrating human-centered design in 2023.

Human-centered design

We can’t help but feel a little nostalgic.

We’ve come a long way since our early days, but one thing that’s never changed is our commitment to putting people first. We believe that great UX connects facts with feelings. It’s all about empathy, understanding, and creating experiences that truly resonate with people. That’s why we’re proud to have helped so many amazing organizations connect with their users in meaningful ways and create amazing products over the past decade.

Of course, none of this would be possible without our clients, who’ve entrusted us with the responsibility of bringing their visions to life. From startups to global brands, we’ve had the privilege of working with some incredible teams and organizations over the years, and we’re so grateful for their support.

We also owe a huge shout out to the fantastic team of designers, researchers, and leaders—both past and present—who have been part of the ZoCo family.

You are the real MVPs!

Thanks to your hard work, creativity, and dedication, we’ve been able to deliver some truly remarkable projects through the years. And thank you for caring so much. For truly caring about the problems we solve, our clients, and our community. Your passion and energy is what grounds our unique ZoCulture. Here’s to many more years of collaboration and innovation!


Here’s to the next 10 years of human-centered design.

As we look to the future, we’re excited to keep pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. And we promise that it’ll be done the ZoCo way; we’ll continue to color outside the lines, punch above our weight, and be our authentic selves in all we do, all in the pursuit of creating even better experiences for our clients and their users. We can’t wait to see what the next 10 years will bring!

It’s been a wild ride, and we’re just getting started. Thanks to everyone who’s been a part of our journey. Let’s grab a beer, and cheers the next decade!
