About ZCode

Welcome to the world of ZCode.

In 2009 an idea was born. The idea focused on family, on community, and that warm and fuzzy feeling of bringing people closer together. The idea grew, developed and matured. A goal was established to bring the idea to life: We need to make a magazine that we would want to read. Something that is different. Something that ONLY focuses on our neighbors, our friends, our family, our community.

92127 Magazine debuted in the fall of 2009. We were off to the races, bringing communities all over North County San Diego closer together with each title launch. In five quick years, ZCode has grown from one magazine, a home office, and a family to fourteen magazines, a 13,000 sqft media center, and a bit larger family. Speaking of that media center…

ZCode Magazines is a privately-owned, rapidly-growing media company based in the Rancho Bernardo area of San Diego.

The company provides innovative community magazines delivered to targeted demographics in North San Diego County, along with related websites and newsletters.  In addition, the ZCode team provides consultation to businesses on creative marketing opportunities utilizing social media, email, multi-media, direct mail, custom publishing and other services.

Started in 2007, the company first published the international Baja Home Directory, a print publication and companion website.  Then in 2009, the company expanded into community publishing with the launch of 92127 Magazine, a glossy publication distributed to every home and condominium in 4S Ranch, Del Sur, High Country West, Santa Fe Valley, Westwood, Santaluz and surrounding areas (west of Interstate 15 and Rancho Bernardo, and north of Rancho Penasquitos).

ZCode Magazines’s philosophy is simple and specific:  We are focused on our customers, consistently delivering a higher standard of service and exceeding expectations; we are committed to the sustained growth and expansion of our operations; we become involved and support the communities we serve; we foster an ongoing entrepreneurial spirit throughout our organization; and we aspire to hire, develop, reward, promote and retain the best people.

ZCode was founded and is managed by executives with extensive experience in all areas of the publishing industry and varied backgrounds including broadcast, printing, target marketing, websites and other electronic mediums, video, and more.  The team includes dynamic professionals with superb knowledge of the San Diego area markets, small business planning and management, and creative marketing techniques.
