Phil Zelnar

Usability studies have shown that lists and cat videos are highly engaging, so here are both:

  1. I’m Phil Zelnar, a designer who also writes code.
  2. Usually I work on websites.
  3. Sometimes I work on logos, print, or illustration.
  4. I cut my teeth at 50,000feet in Chicago.
  5. Then I founded a firm called Poccuo in Washington, DC.
  6. Now I freelance and occasionally I teach.
  7. Over the years I’ve collaborated with Atlantic Media, Brookings, WAMU/NPR, The Washington Post, and other good folks.
  8. Adobe Creative Suite, Sketch, and Invision are my design tools.
  9. I build with Craft (CMS), Git, HTML/CSS (SASS), JS, PHP/Twig and other jargony stuff.
  10. I’ve been flattered by AIGA, Creative Arts, Princeton Architectural Press, Print Magazine, Society of Publication Design, Society of Typographic Arts, SxSW, and the Webby’s.
  11. If you want to chat about a project, drop a line.
  12. And here’s that cat video I promised you.
