Paul Zeaiter was born in 19-something-something in Sydney, Australia, in the era of Prince, Nintendo, breakdance, hair metal, mullets, Michael Jordan and Transformers. After completing his apprenticeship in some of Sydney’s premier design studios, Paul left to expand his horizons in London where his love for design and music flourished. After taking a hiatus from DJing, Paul picked up the guitar, and ever since, his worlds of art and music meshed. Music fuelled his passion for art and design, and created a desire to integrate both passions into his personal and professional lifestyle.
With each client and every new project, Paul combines his aesthetic sensibility with a comprehensive cultural understanding to create distinctive designs, illustrations and typography.
Through his design and illustration practice he has developed an intuitive process of work that has resulted in a bold, impactful and articulate visual style. He specialises in creating visual designs for the music industry through illustration, branding, packaging and merchandise. Taking inspiration from pop culture, street culture, art and music, Paul has been commissioned to design numerous projects for a diverse range of clients across the globe.
Paul currently resides and works in Los Angeles. When he is not designing, he can be found painting under the moniker “Zeet”, DJing, playing guitar or hiking.
