Take A Look At ZS3
Everything You See Is ZS3, Just Say No To Stock Photography
All of the graphics, photography, content (text, video, images) on ZS3 will always original content created for you to interact with, experience and enjoy. There is NO STOCK photography in this site and there never will be. We are content creators, curators and optimizers…we walk the walk. This is part of our holistic approach, we don’t think that stock creates an authentic experience or engaging representation of an organization. We also don’t believe in creating content just for the sake of creating content. We think that you should put your best 1% forward and focus on quality NOT quantity. In short, distribute less, mean more and help reduce the noise level on the social web.
WP3 + ZS3 Is Poetry
WordPress has become sophisticated and has evolved far past being just another ”weblog software.” With the addition of custom post types, a revamped WP core, theme frameworks, and wide variety of advanced plugins WordPress has become a user friendly open source content management system that grows more feature rich by the day. ZS3 is built on WP3 and is an example of what can be done with WordPress if you put your mind to it. We hope you enjoy the visual poetry!

Holistic Strategy is Good Design
Good design is more then programming talent, more then this CMS or that platform. Good design is more then just making something that looks cool today or is hip for awhile (just say no to the darkwood!), it means making something sophisticated, stylized, clean and timeless. Good design incorporates social media, creates community, empowers users by lowering barriers to engagement and leveraging existing identities. Good design already thought about SEO before the web presence was built. Good design takes into account product design, industrial design, process design, user experience, organizational structure, industry context and far beyond — not just web design. Good design means you learn from everything, always overcoming challenges, focus on solving problems and take the time to do things right. Everything you see in ZS3 is a culmination of our holistic strategy. Holistic strategy is a prerequisite for good design.
