Zenman is an award-winning, full-service interactive marketing agency in Denver’s RiNo neighborhood. We shine a spotlight on our clients to tell their unique story and grow their businesses. We are unapologetically driven by process, living and breathing quantitative creativity because we believe that websites can be beautiful and useful.
Zenman is looking for an experienced Web Designer with an eagerness to dive into a fast-paced and evolving digital agency atmosphere. Our perfect match will have 2+ years of experience with a design agency, expertise in responsive web design, and be an aficionado in user interface and experience. A strong digital portfolio is also crucial.
Interactive digital designers at Zenman are essential to our content-first digital product development process. The ideal candidate will be able to work efficiently on their own, but Zenman is a team-focused company at its core. Strong communication skills are a must.
Standard projects are new website builds, rebuilds, and website overhauls. Print-based design tasks such as logos, brochures, packaging, and brand collateral will also be assigned as needed. Creativity is an indispensable trait of all Zenman designers. Beyond that, it’s critical that candidates applying for the position are on board with Zenman’s core values.
Our style is similar to start-ups which means less formality but more efficiency. Work/life balance is a priority although sometimes we have to keep after it until the work gets done. That might mean evening and weekend hours, but we have fun and take plenty of pizza and pinball breaks along the way. Our client connection is human, our work is mature, our clients are sizable and our websites drive ROI.

The Zenman himself
When Keith Roberts started Zenman back in 1998, right after the dotcom bubble burst, it was just him, his Buddhist books, and a few skateboards. Armed with a dreamy but less-than-practical degree in undersea photography, Keith was determined to have creativity pay the bills – and it wasn’t long before they did. Across nearly two decades, Keith long ago surpassed his 10,000 hours as a designer and helped Zenman stay true to its principle of perpetual karma, aligning right thought, right speech and right action in every project. As Founder, Creative Director and Visionary of the company, he is passionate about the Design work Zenman produces and still designs projects himself. Currently, he’s designing Zenman 8.0, due to be live early in 2017.
