Our Story

Client List

Inspired by his desire to make models, Dean Zoyes formed Zoyes East, Inc. in 1995 in Detroit, Michigan. Combining the latest in laser-cutting services with traditional model building craft, ZEI is a full service model making shop capable of servicing a variety of Architects, Developers, Exhibit Companies, and Engineers.

In 2009 Dean merged ZEI with his wife’s marketing agency to form Zoyes Creative Group. This new entity employs web and graphic designers, model makers, industrial designers, architectural illustrators, and CAD operators - all of them passionate craftsmen unified by a desire to take the firm to the next level.

In 2011, Dean decided to pursue new challenges with exhibit company EEI Global. To his credit, he left behind a skilled team of professional model builders that would uphold the standards our clients have come to expect. His legacy at ZEI lives on as we continue to grow and prosper.
