In 2004, our founder, Cara Miller, saw a gap in how agencies were serving their customers. With 80% of buyers being women and only 3% of creative directors being female, the disconnect in solutions and recommendations was evident. We set out to build an agency to change things up. Grounded in research, right-sized solutions, and a focus on results, ZIV, a Certified Woman Owned Business, began. Word soon spread and this different perspective began to resonate with clients, most of them coming to ZIV not knowing how to effectively engage with their customers in an ever-changing digital landscape. What started as one desk quickly grew into an integrated agency with purpose-driven experts. Even today ZIV stays rooted in the heart that started it all.


ZIV is the Hebrew word meaning “light” or “glow.” We chose this because that’s exactly what we want to be for your business– a light. Not only do we seek to be your guide through your business landscape, our goal is to make you shine. Let’s ignite brilliance. Let’s ZIV.


Supporting women entrepreneurs in the developing world has been shown to reduce poverty and improve child outcomes. A few organizations we share profit with:
