TEMPE, Ariz. – July 12, 2011 – Zion & Zion today announces the continued expansion of its team in the key growth areas of User Experience Design and Interactive Strategy. Experiencing uninterrupted month-over month growth since the firm’s founding in 2002, Zion & Zion is in an extremely rare position amongst full-service agencies. One of the only firms nationally to experience explosive growth during the downturn, Zion & Zion has grown its client base, expanded its offices, invested in technology and supported the continuing education of its employees. Zion & Zion is now leveraging the leadership position it has attained as the top ranked Online Marketing Firm, Social Media Agency, Public Relations Firm, and Advertising Agency in Arizona (references below), to widen its lead.

Zion & Zion CEO Aric Zion (@ariczion) stated, “The economy is coming out of the worst recession since the great depression, but while most agencies experienced a lot of pain and severe cut backs during that period, for us, it was the opposite. We grew substantially. So, instead of having to hire to ‘rebuild,’ we’re able to hire to take our agency’s capabilities even further. Will Yowell is the newest addition to the Zion & Zion UX and Interactive Strategy team.”

Will brings with him a wealth of experience in User Experience Design as well as both front-end and back-end implementation. His specialty includes the specification and development of rich internet applications across a variety of platforms. Will’s interactive experience includes working with world class brands such as KB Homes, Reebok and Apple.

Will stated, “What got me into this career years back was the opportunity to constantly learn and grow both in design and programming. What attracted me to Zion & Zion was the commitment to employee growth, continuous education and the opportunity to learn. What made it a slam dunk was the openness of the team with respect to communications and the level of integration across absolutely all functions in the organization. In the short time I’ve been here, I’m already working with our Content Strategy team, our Social Media team, and our Internet Marketing and Analytics team as well as the senior leadership of the firm. Zion & Zion is definitely not your ‘pure creative’ agency and has a team that is so closely knit, it literally is like being adopted by a family.”
