ZYPE is a design company and an outlet for the work that would otherwise be pushed to one side by our day-to-day focus.
Two Designers, both of whom have been around for a while now, with interests and talents ranging from web and graphic design through to teaching, 3D printing and craft. For the teachers out there we are also continuing our development of teaching resources with a focus on short activities that can be used with students to teach specific skills.
It's a little bit business, a little bit hobby, and all Design.
