BRIEF

Kurt Zinser began his professional career in graphic design after receiving his BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Tennessee. In 1998, during the height of the dot com boom, he relocated to Boston, MA where he joined Molecular, a forward thinking web development firm focused on serving fortune 500 companies in the financial, technology and retail sectors. While at Molecular, he was responsible for leading the creative process for such companies as Fidelity Investments, Analog Devices and Staples. In 2001 he helped form Method Bureau, a graphic design studio located in Knoxville, Tennessee. During his 8 year tenure as partner he wore many hats while leading the firm's nationally recognized interactive work.

Currently, Kurt maintains a multi-disciplinary freelance practice specializing in interactive, print and identity design.

His work is highly influenced by the "swiss style" that emphasizes cleanliness, readability and objectivity. He is known for constantly "reminding" his clients to think of their customer, users and business goals when making design decisions.
