Member agency, Zeal40, turns one, celebrates with community outreach
Last summer, woman-owned Zeal40: The Creative Agency arrived on the downtown Cincinnati marketing scene with a fresh and results-driven approach to connecting with consumers where they live, work and play.
The Zeal40 creative team of longtime colleagues provides print, web, audio-visual and social-media marketing services to a diverse client list that is rapidly approaching 100 colleges, universities and others peripheral to the millennial-consumer experience.
With more than 200 successful print and web projects completed to date, the agency is shifting focus to explore new platforms and business tools that will help clients connect more meaningfully with the populations they serve.
Looking back on a tremendously successful year, Zeal40’s milestone achievements include:
- Joining associations like the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber, Network of Executive Women, WE Lead Cincinnati and Bad Girl Ventures;
- Attending the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) and the American Marketing Association (AMA) conferences;
- Extending valuable design internships to students from the nearby College of Mount St. Joseph and Art Academy of Cincinnati;
- Performing volunteer/pro bono work for Wilson Elementary, Kentucky Montessori Alliance and Camp Sunshine;
- Winning a number of promising RFPs;
- Adding photography and website development to capabilities; and
- Strengthening more than 100 existing partnerships well into the future.
The theme for Zeal40 in the year to come and beyond: community engagement. With more than 70 combined years of experience in higher education, the team is passionate about extending its message of universal quality and accessibility to all segments of learning and development – starting right here at home.
To execute on that plan, Zeal40 will forge pro-bono partnerships with K-12 institutions throughout Greater Cincinnati, helping educators and students alike to share their unique stories in ways that will maximize their engender pride, produce results and maximize community, regional, state and federal investment in programs and curricula that are proven to drive student success.
Plans are also in the works to contribute individually and as a group to extracurricular organizations known to maximize the life-learning balance, such as Girls on the Run, Boys and Girls Club of America and Adopt-A-Class.
