About Zak Designs


Meals are a necessity. But that doesn't mean they have to be boring. From the time I started Zak Designs in 1976, we have been focused on making mealtime fun and colorful ... and just a little more special for people around the world.

It was that driving force that first gave me the idea to put licensed characters on children's dinnerware as a way to give kids something to look forward to at mealtime. And it's that same driving force that has helped Zak Designs grow into the global leader it is today.

Along the way, however, we also came to a very important realization. Children aren't the only ones who want mealtime to be special. As a way to help make meals more special for everyone, Zak Designs continually seeks out new ways to expand our consumer base by developing fun and functional products for people of all ages.

In addition to our colorful and durable dinnerware,drinkware, and serveware, we've recently launched a line of innovative products for toddlers that help them develop healthy eating habits that will last a lifetime. We've also created child-sized baking activity sets that encourage kids to get involved in the kitchen; we've introduced a new line of licensed glass and ceramic products that meet the growing need of tweens, teens, and adults to make a social statement about their values and their conic characters who embody those values; and we've launched Planet Zak- beverageware that's designed to keep up with people's active lifestyles.

It's all part of our goal to look past traditional mealtimes and expand our offering to include a wide range of products for the home and on-the-go that surprise and delight our customers around the world with each bite and every sip. That mission has been at the heart of everything we've done for the last 40 years, and it will continue to be at the heart of everything we do for the next 40 years. And beyond.
