Digital / Mobile, Marketing

Our team of strategy, technology and content experts help ambitious businesses win in a world where digital is mission critical.

 

Zone is an agency built for the digital age. We combine classic marketing strategy skills with service design, content and technology capabilities. We're not simply a mobile or social agency - we're both of these and much more. We help great brands thrive in a digital world. For Coca-Cola, this means producing relevant content across a range of social platforms, brands and audiences; for Barratt Homes, it means managing a website that delivers thousands of leads a week; and for Tesco, it means helping them become a multi-channel retailer. To do all this, we have world-class front- and back-end development teams, industry-leading UX and design teams, a brilliant strategy team and superb project and client management. We are particularly proud of our editorial proposition, with more than 30 print and video journalists, including a team of sub-editors, on our staff. This commitment to content development is crucial because content lies at the heart of all digital activity. We are ambitious, for ourselves and for our clients.

Share A Coke

Coca-Cola's Share a Coke was a campaign conceived for a social world. The product itself - each bottle bore one of the 1,200 most popular names in the UK - was inherently shareable. But how could these individual moments of social interaction be transformed into a nationwide expression of brand love?

Key People

Dominic Mills CTO

With almost 20 years’ experience in delivering mission critical digital solutions, chief technology officer Dominic Mills heads up Zone’s 100-plus strong team of technologists. Dominic specialises in leveraging technology to promote tangible business development, having, for example, helped Gatwick Airport turn its website from mere information hub into a genuine revenue generator and South West Trains initiate a paradigm shift in the ticket-purchasing experience for its passengers. The application of mobile technologies, and their potential to provide a step-change in utility to users, is a particular passion of Dominic’s, and he has written extensively on the subject for the likes of Campaign magazine and CMO.com After starting his career at a global IT player, Dominic founded Auros, a digital agency specialising in tech build, in 2001. His start-up built a reputation for delivering large-scale, technically complex digital projects for clients such as the NHS, Swinton Insurance and Virgin Media Business. Auros was acquired by Zone in 2013, leading to Dominic becoming a Zone business partner

James Freedman Executive Chairman

Zone began in a bedroom in Belsize Park, north-west London, when James and his wife Anna returned from New York to launch the official Manchester United magazine in 1993. The success of Zone's work with Manchester United led to projects with such global sports brands as the Football Association, AS Roma, Channel 4, Liverpool FC and Chelsea FC. In 1999 Zone sold the newsstand publishing business and acquired tech consultancy Quantum, combining Zone's editorial and design skills with the technology required to deliver content in the digital world. Zone has been helping some of the world's biggest brands connect with audiences through content ever since

Jon Davie UK CEO

Jon began his career at the Guardian, where he was part of the team that launched the Guardian Unlimited website, before joining the UK's most successful dot.com start-up, lastminute.com in 2000. In 2004 he joined the bid team responsible for bringing the 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games to London, joining Zone the following year after the success of the bid. Taking on the role of managing director in 2009, Jon has overseen the agency's growth over the past eight years, growing the team from 15 to more than 200 staff, winning dozens of industry awards and securing new business wins from major clients including Coca-Cola, Tesco, BT, Channel 4 and The Economist
