About Me

My name is Tate Zalasky, I'm a 21 year old Senior studying Graphic Design at Iowa State. I've been learning Adobe products since I was 10 years old and I've always had a passion for it. I have been doing most of my work freelancing for record labels, artists, and distribution companies in New York, such as Republic Records, Universal Music, and Winners Circle Ent. creating cover arts, animated art, flyers, posters, and more.

Gaining Traction

I started my Instagram account in 2019, posting music reviews about songs or albums from my favorite artists. I ended up going to design school and changing my account to more of a portfolio for my work. After a while, I wanted to start selling my designs, so I started sending Instagram DMs to small artists and managers, offering them free work if they would just give me a shot. I probably sent over a thousand DMs over the course of 5-6 months before I finally got in contact with a new up and coming artist out of Brooklyn New York, Tata, who's manager from RiteorwrongKVH entertainment contacted me back telling me they needed a cover art for Tata's first official release. The song featured 2 other 41 members, and from there I started creating for them for every release as they very successfully made a name for themselves. They brought me along for the ride too, sending me clients, giving me exposure, and even giving me media passes to film and photograph their concerts numerous times. Since then I have been working to constantly grow my network and possibilities for my business.

What is ZSIX?

ZSIX is a creative marketplace in the early development stage. I am working to create a home for all artists, where they can purchase cover arts from professional designers, beats from decorated producers, upload their own music, connect with new artists, climb leaderboards to win monthly prizes, and more, all in one place. The main difference in our website compared to any other marketplace, is that we will have a video game inspired user interface. The website and app will be interactive and engaging, customizable, and will even feature a "select your character" type of browsing experience, where you can look through designer's or producer's "stats" or skills and choose which best fits your artist appearance. Order custom beats, pre-made beats, custom cover arts, pre-made cover arts, everything you need, all in one place.
