Ape to Zebra is an Amsterdam based full service communication and design agency. We form a small, dynamic group of creative thinkers and designers,and are always ready to respond or adapt quickly to every situation. We serve clients of all sizes and backgrounds. From a small local operating craft beer brewery to a international community build around self-tracking projects. One day we create a promotional video for an upcoming art- exhibition and the next day we work on a website for architects. This wide range of clients and projects keeps us sharp and highly motivated.

process & strategy

When you think about engaging with us, you can expect a clear process, based on crisp estimates in which we indicate how long each part of that process will take us. Depending on the size of the project we form a team and get cracking.

In this initial phase we will look together for what is driving and motivating you, but also what problems and challenges you encounter. Familiarize ourselves with each other. Without focusing on the final application, we learn about the story that needs to be told. 

Now we know who you are and what you need, we get to it. We develop a concept that will fit with your ambitions. Whether its an identity or a website, this will be its foundation. A new design, new information structure, a fresh look or different approach. This will be the future.

In this phase the concept transforms to a complete product. Clear messaging and outspoken design; your story will come to life so it can attract the attention it needs. We’ll keep an eye on the overall story and we’ll zoom in on the details. A complete design will be connected to a content structure that works best for you.

The result of our joint efforts can now be shared with the world! 
The website goes live and we should not let this go by unnoticed.
