What is zing?

It is your special ingredient. Your golden hour. The essence of your world. The driver of your dreams. The beat to which you move. The joy you feel. The magic that you make. It is sunshine behind your smile. The reason for your bloom. It is that thing, the thing that makes you, you.


New education resource!

I had the pleasure of creating a super fun educational resource for Boroondara Arts called "Letters to My Future Self " and is aimed at Levels 3/4 and 5/6, with direct links to the Victorian Curriculum Levels 5/6 (Science, Capabilities and Technologies).

Hello and Welcome to The Zingy Studio! A very practical and very creative studio that uses a range of disciplines to develop holistic design solutions, and creative education programs for commercial and community groups. At the helm of Zingy is artist and educator Miranda Sims, who loves nothing more than teaching others the joy of artistic practice and in turn finding their very own zing.

Over the years, Miranda has cultivated successful careers in education and design but what truly makes her an innovative leader is her ability to work both intuitively and analytically. This unique blend allows her to work with a variety of individuals and brands such as digital education platform Skillshare, Incinerator Gallery, City of Boroondara and City of Great Dandenong.

Miranda’s latest offering also includes creative mentorship which enables her to work closely with individuals on customised design solutions and practical strategies to help them bloom into the creative they dream to be.
