About Tzaddi Gordon
I'm so glad you're here.
First things first: Tzaddi is pronounced "zawdee", and my pronouns are she/her.
My first name Tzaddi has several meanings, and there's one I love most...
Tzaddi: fish hook, as in capturing or hooking of the fertility of the subconscious mind.
This metaphor seems perfectly apt, because one of the things I do best is deep listening and observation.
When we work together, I pick up things you aren’t even consciously communicating.
Clients repeatedly tell me that they feel truly heard, and that I'm able to translate their vision even before they're sure what it is.
That's me, Tzaddi Gordon. My hair is often blue or purple, or sadly in need of a visit to my hair magician. 😉
I use my creativity as a force for good in the world. You, too?
Since you're here, I'm betting that you aim to be the change you want to see in the world. You want to make a difference and you want your work to matter. Me, too.
I love to go deep below the surface, to find the currents that will carry your message most effectively.
I bring my clients' design dreams to life.
With decades of design experience and artistry, I co-create a wide range of things with my clients. From inspiring decks of cards, journals, and other paper goods, to surface design for apparel or merch, to visual branding and website design.
One of my favourite things is helping clients who've outgrown their bootstrap days to create a finely crafted brand and assets to support their big ideas that have been waiting for the right time and support. When I become your design wing-person and help you soar, that's magic for both of us.
Have a brilliant new brand or idea that's been waiting in the wings? Let's make it happen.
From concept to customer, I will help you with strategy, design, and implementation.
