Zoe Zaiss

St. Louis, Missouri ->
Toronto, Ontario ->
St. Louis, Missouri


Born & raised in the heart of the Midwest in St. Louis, Missouri. My passion for art and design started at the age of 14 where I started my own freelance business taking senior portraits. ZoeZPhotography is where I built my first website, designed my first business cards, and managed my first clients.

I continued to find new opportunities while furthering my education at Truman State University with internships, multiple design positions, and advancing my freelance. May 2017, I completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Communications, a Bachelor of Arts in Public Communication, and a minor in Photography.

After graduation, I moved to Toronto, Ontario where I was the Lead Designer for Nutcracker Sweet Gifting Company. I managed social accounts and websites, designed the annual catalog, rebranded internal brands, redesigned their packaging, and much more.

Now I work as an Art Director back in St. Louis for Momentum Worldwide where I work on clients such as Energizer, Chobani, Mondelez, Abbvie, Coke, and much more.

I am always on the hunt for new and exciting projects and opportunities! If you are interested in my services or just want to talk shop, don't hesitate to contact me!
