At CL&P, we come from different backgrounds, but share the same fundamental beliefs about design:
We must relentlessly chase the details in everything we produce, and every project we pursue should have a strong reason for being.
Zane CooperPartner & Co-Founder

With a love of technology, art, and travel, he endeavors to leave everything a little more beautiful and meaningful than when he found it. Zane graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design and Brown University where he studied Industrial Design and Computer Science.
Neil LevyPartner & Co-Founder
As Creative Director and writer, Neil has a deep-seated love for storytelling and even today holds the contrarian opinion that people still enjoy reading copy. Provided of course it’s worthy of being read. His passions span history, science, film, and literature. He’s happiest when he’s thinking about ideas that can change the world but much happier when he’s actually making them.
Todd PorterExecutive Producer
As Executive Producer, Todd has the unique ability to bring almost any vision to life. And for over 20 plus years at some of the best advertising and design shops in the world, he’s orchestrated everything from Super Bowl spots, never-been-done before events (like getting a building-sized vending machine filled with live musical acts made for Doritos at SXSW), while discovering new musical talent long before the rest of the world does.
Stephen FahlsingTechnical Director
As Technical Director, it’s Stephen’s job to ensure all the digital things we propose to clients can be built well and within budget.

Chris GardnerInteractive Director
As Interactive Director, Chris is constantly finding innovative ways to bring digital concepts to life while meeting the marketing, product, or customer needs. With a passion for animation, motion graphics, design, photography, product development, and construction, if it can be built, odds are good Chris can figure out a way to bring it to life in an elegant way. Even if he has to write the code or build the prototype to make it happen.
