Need some help with marketing communications?

Well, you’re in luck because you’ve just found graphic designers with a combination of know-how and down-to-earth approachability that’s hard to find these days. We pride ourselves on our service as much as we do the art we create. We’re quick, smart, and actually nice to work with.

CREATIVE

Our collective imaginations and mouse-to-eye coordination result in designs that get attention in any medium.

TECHNICAL

line-box

Skilled with elevated levels of comprehension and accuracy, we take pages of technical specs and turn them into informative designs.

WEB

line-box

We take your business and brand into the digital world, conveying your message at lightning speed on the web.

We specialize in marketing and sales support

Catalogs

Whether it’s a 2000-page technical catalog or a smaller retail one, we’ll create a masterpiece that explains your products and services, focusing on the finest details and specifications. And it will be built the right way—using stylesheets and templates—for easy editing down the line.

Technical Documents

Designing informative pieces about complex products doesn’t come easy for everyone, but it’s a specialization of the staff here. If you need product aids, sales sheets, instruction manuals, or pricing booklets, we can handle designing and updating them for you on a regular basis.

Print Collateral

As your marketing communications partner, we’ll create cohesive materials to support your brand or current campaign. We advise our clients on what would work best and then create the tools: corporate capabilities brochures, sales aids, folders, etc. Zoltun strives to be a valued extension of your team.

Trade Show Support

There’s nothing like the challenge of creating big, bold graphics to concisely tell a story; it calls for different creative thoughts than handheld art. Fortunately, we excel at both. We’ll design exhibit graphics according to the floor plan and create collateral and presentation tools to match.

Brand Identity and Logos

Businesses must live and breathe their brand. Zoltun is here to keep your business alive and well by creating or refreshing the elements of your brand identity. We design impactful logos, color palettes, corporate identity guides, and business stationery, among other brand-building pieces.

Direct Mail and Invitations

Looking to get your customers’ attention or attract new customers? We’re always designing fun, attention-grabbing direct mailers and event invitations that spark a person’s curiosity through the use of folds, die-cuts, special effects, distinct sizes, and unique paper stocks.

Print and Web Ads

So you need a fantastic ad that speaks to your audience with a passionate and informative message? We’ll help you transfer that concept in your head into elements of art and copy.

Out-of-Home

Sometimes your brand needs to be seen everywhere it can be. We’ll create the right combination of billboards, kiosks, transit ads, and signage that cut through the clutter.

Websites

We plan, design, and launch websites through the collaboration of an account executive, art director, and strategic web partner who’s suited to your unique needs.

HTML Emails

Need to boost your business with email marketing? We take your content, add some creativity, and then code it in HTML for optimized viewing in multiple email clients.

“There are three responses to a piece of design – yes, no, and WOW! Wow is the one to aim for.”

Milton Glaser
Our Team

Our Team

Our people make a difference for our clients.

Design Team
Theresa Poprocky
Theresa Poprocky
Director, Creative Services

Torn between creative writing and conceptual design, Theresa gets to nurture both passions at Zoltun. And for her, mentoring young creative talent is the cherry on top. Theresa loves climbing inside a client’s head to figure out what they’re trying to convey, and discerning how best to make that happen… both verbally and visually.

John Michalski
John Michalski
Art Director

“Michalski,” as we endearingly refer to John, can morph from icon creator extraordinaire to technical template ace without batting an eye. And if you’re having a computer issue of any nature, he’s not content until he figures it out and gets you back up and running lickety-split. Michalski is the perfect blend of creative whiz and computer nerd.

Mark Markovic
Mark Markovic
Senior Art Director

The second you meet Mark, you know this guy has earned his stripes. He is a seasoned art director and designer with passion, self-motivation, and time-tested leadership skills. His hard work and dedication to his craft continuously result in successful integrated marketing and branding campaigns for national and local organizations.

Debbie Gregg
Debbie Gregg
Senior Graphic Designer

Usually “speed” and “precision” are not used in conjunction when describing a person’s skill set, but that’s exactly what you get with Debbie. Her attention to detail is unmatched, and her background in typesetting and global translation is a real asset when projects cross our threshold that need to be updated and translated into one or multiple dialects.

Patricia Warman
Patricia Warman
Senior Graphic Designer

Patricia has come a long way from her layout days at the Yellow Pages in San Diego. She is Zoltun’s token designer at our Milwaukee satellite office. Patricia’s forte and main concentrations are catalog page production and technical template development. To do this, she transitions from Mac to PC to Mac to PC to Mac, somehow making it all seem effortless.

Jojo Veltri
Jojo Veltri
Senior Graphic Designer

If ever there was someone who gave 101% of themselves, 100% of the time, that someone would be Jojo Veltri. He is a kindhearted, hardworking, good-natured, super talented, detail-oriented, and caring human being. When you sit down to have a professional or personal conversation with Jojo, nothing else exists at that moment—he is totally, 101% invested.

Tayler Wentz
Tayler Wentz
Graphic Designer

Endearingly dubbed “Little t,” Tayler is the newest member of our Zoltun family. She is a 2015 graduate of Robert Morris University with a bachelor’s degree in Media Arts. Tayler brings a fresh, contemporary design perspective to the team, with a specialized concentration in graphic design for print, web, and social media.

Account Team
Judy Feild
Judy Feild
VP Sales, Account Management

Judy knows her way around the design world. No matter your industry or line of business, she is a great listener and interpreter of our clients’ needs and expectations… and she delivers! Poised and professional, personable and passionate, Judy is attentive to the smallest of details and committed to maintaining fluid lines of communication.

Silvia Ramos
Silvia Ramos
Account Executive

If anyone can take a boatload of mayhem and turn it into cohesion, it’s Silvia. She’s been known to juggle multitudes of large projects at the same time and keep them all running smoothly. Although she is 500 miles away in Milwaukee, she works closely with every member of the Zoltun family and is able to strike a great balance between the creative and managerial processes.

Angel Rose
Angel Rose
Account Executive

When you meet Angel, you’re drawn in—you feel like you’ve known her your entire life. Her warm personality and willingness to go above and beyond to get the job done makes her an invaluable addition to the account management team at Zoltun. With Angel, it’s all about relationships, and her clients are her number one priority… aside from her kids, of course.

Craig Carlin
Craig Carlin
Account Executive

Craig is an excellent navigator. He’s a crackerjack at getting you from point A to point B, and he puts that talent to good use as he guides our clients from design inception to project completion. Craig started his career as a designer, but soon found himself transitioning to account management because of his stellar work ethic and excellent communication skills.

Proofreading
Casey Clark
Casey Clark
Proofreader / Copy Editor

Whether she’s crafting compelling text, restructuring a sentence, or removing that unnecessary punctuation, Casey is quite the skilled wordsmith. It’s not unusual to see Casey hiding behind a tall stack of technical documents, plowing through them with a fine-toothed comb and her internal encyclopedia of trademarks, corporate guidelines, and technical industry standards.

Administration
Janey Zoltun
Janey Zoltun
Vice President

Janey provides the Zoltun team with great encouragement and verve. With a background in psychology and accounting, she is equipped to weather human resources issues as well as monitor checks and balances. Her behind-the-scenes work keeps us up and running at the front lines, where we are reminded of her support each and every day.

Rick Zoltun
Rick Zoltun
President

He puts the “Zoltun” in Zoltun Design, and he’s the driving force behind our award-winning work. It’s that very drive that enabled Zoltun to move from its original location, Rick’s tiny three-room apartment, to our current home at 10 Bedford Square. Now, Rick’s vision is being realized each and every day… thanks to the support of his families both at home and work.


Without great clients, we’d be nothing.

Over the years, Zoltun has had the opportunity to work with clients in a number of industries. We’re not one to back down from any marketing communications challenge, but we thrive when we create for the manufacturing, technology, healthcare, higher education, or nonprofit sectors. Our strength is the ability to adapt our designs to emphasize what’s important to both the industry and our client. Here are some of our valuable clients:

Recent testimonials

Zoltun blended many strengths to support us. They used experience and keen listening to identify our goals and define a plan. Then they employed superior technical acumen and creativity to exceed our expectations in a responsive and realistic way.

Mick N.   -a Laboratory Solutions Company

Zoltun has been a huge help with complex catalogs and brochures. If it weren’t for their problem-solving and coordination abilities, projects would fall apart. They keep track of every single document, keeping them moving from start to finish. The Milwaukee and Pittsburgh teams continually go above and beyond.

Frank T.   -a Power Management Company

Zoltun puts in extra time to bring our projects to completion. These projects are tied to real sales efforts that directly impact the business, so they are highly visible. The team is blown away by the caliber of work!

Jen M.   -a Power Management Company

The team at Zoltun is always there when I need them. They always deliver high-quality marketing materials and don’t flinch when there is a tight deadline. I can’t say enough about their professionalism and great overall value.

Our Process

Our Process

It's quite simple. We live by our three-step process.

WE LISTEN

It all starts with a simple conversation. We are truly interested in hearing your vision firsthand. No one knows your business as well as you do, so the information you share is paramount. It helps us understand where you’ve been, where you are, and where you need to go. Then it’s our job to roll up our sleeves to get you there.

WE INTERPRET

Once we have learned all about you, we set the gears in motion and assemble a team whose sole mission is to service you and make you feel comfortable and confident in us. There’s a lot of brainstorming and sharing of ideas that happens next. The line of communication between you and Zoltun is always a fluid one. If it matters to you, it matters to us. We share our ideas with you to make sure our vision aligns with yours.

WE CREATE

This is when the magic happens. Your designer gets to work conceptualizing, typically providing a couple options for your consideration. Then the honing process begins. Our expertise combined with your insight meld into a dynamic design. There is no better fusion than a powerful design solution and a very happy client.
