Zach gets an A++ from Media Matters. We needed a total re-brand - logo and website and within a month - we were live and ready to go. Zach is super patient, flexible...and most importantly - CREATIVE! We would recommend Zach in a heart beat again...
— Josy Amann, Co-Founder and Managing Partner, Media Matters Worldwide
Zach has been very easy to work with and very professional. He has been great with our feedback and incorporating changes needed quickly for our site redesign. His eye for design is wonderful and was able to incorporate what we wanted for a logo in only two rounds of revisions. We would definitely recommend him and work with him again.
— Taji Zaminasli, Co-Founder and Managing Partner, Media Matters Worldwide
We hired Zach in 2015, since then he has delivered several products, each time taking our requirements, and then exceeding our expectations. He has consistently delivered great work on time and never over the price quoted. He’s responsive, asks thoughtful questions about the project and takes feedback well.

I’ve worked with Zach since 2004 and I would highly recommend him. He’s a hugely talented designer and writer, and he’s helped with several of my businesses and startups over the years. He’s fast, professional and easy to work with — and his work is absolutely beautiful.

Zach designed the exceptional new logo for my company, Modern-Day Nomads. He continues to work with me in support of my web and print graphic needs, including additional logos and visual content for Modern-Day Nomads and my personal portfolio site as well. Not only does he come up with fresh and exciting designs, but because of his efficiency, professionalism and engaging personality, working with him is always smooth and enjoyable. I highly recommend Zach to anyone looking for a uniquely talented designer.

Zach is a fantastic addition to design projects. His creative output, coupled with sharp attention to detail, are skills that I can depend on when trying to meet deadlines, while running a small business.
— Coon Lam, Founder & Designer at Coon Lam Design, Brand Manager and Creative Director at Pivotal
Zach is a very creative and great designer. Zach was very easy to communicate with about what we wanted to create and stated what he needed from us so that he had a decent understanding of the framework he was working with with to create what we had as a concept. Zach created 6 unique design drafts with which we worked on and was diligent with timelines to have all next drafts ready by then. Zach’s final concept was exactly what we had as a concept for the company and would happily work with him again for our next marketing project. I highly recommend Zach for any graphic design work that a company would have in any industry and at any stage of the design process. Quality production from a very easy to work with man too.
— Hayden Johns, Marketing and Business Development at New Zealand Pump Company
At the American Red Cross Oregon Trail Chapter, we had a national reputation for identifying creative ways to communicate critical information that required action – before, during and after a disaster or emergency situation. Zach continued that tradition with his work. He understood his responsibility in upholding the integrity of an international brand that was over 100 years old. In doing so, he also brought forward creative approaches that helped us engage new audiences and become more effective with our messaging.
— Mary Faulkner, former Marketing Director of the American Red Cross Oregon Trail Chapter, currently Vice President of Marketing, Ferguson Wellman Capital Management
Zach’s work is always professional, sharp and current. He is able to bring a unique point of view to both his writing and graphic design projects and has provided valuable contributions to multiple business to consumer marketing initiatives. I would highly recommend him to others.

Zach is a talented designer with particularly strong capabilities in copywriting, editing and freehand illustration. As a valued member of the Rains | Birchard Marketing team, Zach participated in a wide array of projects for all of the agency’s clients. I entrusted Zach with direct client communication as needed, and he consistently delivered quality creative work on time and on point with the project goals. I continue to engage with Zach on a project basis now that he’s no longer a full time employee of my agency.
— Matt Birchard, Owner & General Manager, Rains | Birchard Marketing
Zach Netzer is a very talented illustrator and designer with a gift for writing. I originally hired Zach because of his eye for clean layout and design and his ability to illustrate. Only after he started working for me did I discover his hidden talent for creative writing. It is special to find someone that is great at both the literal and the visual sides of communication. This has huge benefits as it can really accelerate development of materials. Zach was and still is a valuable part of my team. I would recommend Zach in heartbeat.

His strong work ethic proved to be an invaluable asset to our design and marketing teams. He enjoyed his work, brought energy and inspiration to every project, and handled multiple deadlines without fail. He quickly adapted to new situations and environments, while conducting himself with a smile and an aura of confidence. I recommend Zach Netzer without reservation and would not hesitate to rehire him.

Zach worked full-time for The Maiden Foundry as a print and web designer. He also animated Flash movies and video loops for large-screen display, and managed internal communication pieces as well. With his RISD degree and additional skills in illustration and copywriting — coupled with his raw creative enthusiasm — Zach proved himself to be a vital part of our team. I enjoyed working with him and continue to recommend him to others.
