Pardon the dust

I'm designing this site in public. It's almost finished, but you might find some bugs and writing stubs.

Hey, I’m Jake Zien.

I'm a living thing who's curious about why things are the way they are.
That's why I live in New York, and why I work in design.

More about me

What I do / What I’ve done

Design is a way of thinking. I've used it to develop products, software, brands, and my worldview.

All work


Things I can recommend generally, publicly, indefinitely.
