Zachary Zettler



An avid photographer, Zach caught the shutter bug at age 10 when he picked up his first camera— his mom’s classic 35mm Minolta XG-70. At GBBN, Zach brings a photographer’s eye for detail, clear communication, and nearly 20 years of experience to a wide range of higher education, mixed-use, and public realm projects that include work at Miami University and the Cincinnati Public Library. He keeps the client at the heart of every project to ensure the development of meaningful and successful design solutions.
