After an early stint in advertising coupled with a Studio Art degree from Skidmore College, a chance position at the Greenwich Village venue (le) poisson rouge transformed Zan’s lifelong passion for music into a career. She worked as their Marketing Coordinator, Box Office Manager, and Designer for over five years, establishing departmental protocol, developing visual branding, and marketing nearly every genre under the sun.
Zan has also lent her skills in marketing, design, and event management to other venues, presenters, and festivals including Wordless Music, Big Ears Festival, Death By Audio, Merkin Concert Hall, and NYC Winter Jazzfest. For her unique take on bold, minimalist design she was named Village Voice’s “Best Concert Poster Designer” of 2015.
As National Sawdust’s Digital Content Producer and Designer she is beyond excited to connect Brooklyn, New York, and the world with the immense breadth of dynamic programming NS has to offer.
