Who we are

Zenda’s Design Team is Setting the Standard in Employee Experience

Twenty-five years ago, the principals at Zenda led graphic and industrial designers into the new world of user interface design. Today we are leading designers into the next frontier. We believe there are many skilled designers who are under-challenged in the pursuit of the usability of websites and the ‘design’ of yet another UI/UX design pattern or standard. Skilled designers are a powerful force — when given the right opportunity, and Zenda’s clients are allowing us to define, explore and solve some of their most interesting operational challenges. This is new territory for design!

Zenda designers are driving innovation by modeling the event of work. Following 25 years running the first and longest operating UX design firm, the founders of Electronic Ink are driving this next wave of design — Employee Experience within the business enterprise. This is a unique opportunity to become part of Zenda’s core team.

Zenda can even make Master Data Management sexy.
