Who I Am
Occasionally communicating in the third-person to make him seem more important than he really is, Mr. Ezzat is an obsessive visual designer, a passionate creative leader, and the founder and creative director of Feral Creative Colony.
With decades of design experience and an affable demeanor, Ziad brings a unique blend of thoughtful pragmatism and neurotic attention to detail to every project he takes on.
I lives and work in beautiful Oakland, California with his lovely wife and three wholly unreasonable cats.
WHAT I DO
I lead teams of designers, developers, illustrators, photographers, video producers, marketers, copywriters, editors, and all sorts of wacky creative types into making beautiful things together.
I make strategic decisions to help my team create the strongest work possible within the ubiquitous, often ridiculous constraints of time and budget.
I preach the brand. I police the brand. I am the brand.
I get my hands dirty. I push pixels, write copy, code htmlcss php js rofl jk lol.
I crop, nudge, filter, and blur. I live and breathe Adobe Creative Cloud. I dream in CMYK. I bleed 1/8″ on all sides.
I research everything. I stare at cool stuff. I read all the blogs—that’s right, all of them. I keep up with the trends. I avoid the fads. I consume as much amazing work as I possibly can in order to create the most amazing work I possibly can.
At work, I herd cats figuratively—at home, literally.
Some things I made to show you how I made those things I made.
Self-indulgent nonsense you should definitely ignore.
is the moment, is the reason, that everything happens.
