Design for People

ZURB is a product design company that’s been around since 1998. In that time, we’ve helped thousands of startups and teams build great products with our consulting, product design tools and training. Our purpose: help people design products and businesses that turn a tidy profit! We do that by making the tech easy to use. We celebrate the wins and innovations of people-centric design that improves lives and creates financial success. And we want to share the success of the folks who’ve worked or interacted with us.

After all, we’re a team of T-shaped product designers, affecting people all over the world from little ol’ Campbell, California. With more than a full decade’s worth of deliberate hard work under our belt, our experience as a team is unmatched to grow businesses through progressive design.

We want our ideas to be accessible

To do this, we set up our business to operate in four, self-supporting ways:

Our manifesto

Since 1998, we’ve learned a few things here and there, including these guiding principles:


A designed world is better

We're empowering people to place Design at the forefront. Putting people first and using Design (with a capital "D") to do this may not be completely obvious. In fact, some of it can be counter-intuitive.

Stanford Alumnus and former lecturer, Bryan leads the charge against the forces of banality, shaping and changing the way we think about building products through Progressive Design. Part man, part muse, Bryan is constantly challenging and inspiring ZURBians and the world to 'Do stuff better!'.

Each month, Bryan chats with influencers and synthesizes his research into 5 insights on design. Stay up to date on design trends and developments with his monthly email, the Design Feedback Loop:
