Zé Studio


 Zé Studio is a Sydney based design and art direction studio founded and led by Joe Tarzia. We work with various institutions, brands and individuals both locally and internationally. Our ideas are developed through an honest and intuitive approach with our clients. We develop concepts across digital spaces to physical objects and environments.



Our work can be experienced in the form of identities, art direction, campaigns, packaging, print, editorial and publication design, websites, object making, exhibition graphics and installations, signage and spatial design.
