Give it up for Zoila!! Our friend Zoila Darton (@zoiladarton) is a Panamanian-Jamaican Jew from NYC currently living in California. She is a passionate innovator, skilled connector & creative director with 10+ years of success in the business of community building and marketing. She is the founder and Creative Director of WORD (@word.agency), an LA based creative agency committed to cultural storytelling & conceptual ideation that puts creativity at the forefront while supporting advancement for women & marginalized communities. Alongside her incredible team of multi hyphenate creatives, she has created meaningful campaigns and consumer experiences for brands like The Los Angeles Philharmonic, HBO, Red Bull, Foot Locker, Nike, Converse & Meta.
Zoila's most important title is "Mama" to her 4 year old, Dakota. She is committed to raising a kind & emotionally intelligent human and works daily to show Dakota what that looks like. In the in-between moments, Zoila enjoys volunteering her time to support youth development, dancing like a maniac, tending to her growing plant familia, indulging in fashion and cooking all the intricate and overly complicated meals.
We loved chatting with Zoila about identity, upbringing, and what it takes to grow and nurture a dynamic business from scratch. Enjoy!
