Jeremy Zilar

I combine human-centered design and strategic business consulting to help organizations set visions, create strategies, design compelling experiences, and empower their teams to have greater autonomy, confidence, and independence.

I’m on the board of the Brooklyn Rail. Recently, I’ve been helping the Rail produce a series of daily conversations with artists, writers, filmmakers, and poets from around the world called “The New Social Environment”, where we explore the role that artists and arts organizations play in shaping our society.

Recently, I was a strategist at 18F and Director of Digital.gov a program aimed at helping governments design and build better, more accessible digital services for the public where I oversaw the U.S. Web Design System, PlainLanguage.gov and 22 communities of practice. Before joining government, I was a design strategist at The New York Times, where I designed and built the company’s first blogging platform and launched over 200 blogs.
