THOM SAUNDERS CEO/Creative Director
Award winning producer, writer, designer and Transmedia developer, Thom is the CEO/Creative Director of ZONE4 Digital Media, a Brisbane based multi-platform Production Company that he founded in 1999. Thom has developed projects for ABC (US), ITV, BBC, Yahoo7 and the ABC in Australia. Thom was Executive Producer, Design and Technical Director on Emmy® nominated Find815 (Lost), BAFTA winning Spooks Interactive, BAFTA nominated, Emmy® nominated and ATOM nominated Emmerdale Online Channel.
In 2008 Thom won an individual BAFTA Craft award for Interactive Innovation (Content) where he was recognised for his work on the Spooks and Emmerdale projects. ZONE4's work has won several AIMIA awards including a World summit award for the Brisbane City Council Green Home project. While running ZONE4 Thom was also one of three equal co-founders and directors that set-up Brisbane based Hoodlum. In 2008 Thom left Hoodlum to explore the combination of transmedia entertainment and education through the use of serious games. Recently developing a project for Queensland Health on the subject of young people mixing illicit drugs, the project called Aftermath was a finalist in the 2010 International Japan Prize for cross media projects dealing with the problems of a modern society and finalist in the 2011 AIMIA Awards.
Having worked in the design and multimedia industries for the past twenty years, Thom has developed a real understanding of how the requirements, capabilities and constraints of each new and evolving digital platform can work together to deliver a finished product.

Graham Lumley, the CEO of GBI, ..., 13 Sept 2012 [cached]
Graham Lumley, the CEO of GBI, a mining data visualisation company, was partnered with Thom Saunders, the Founder/Managing Director of interactive media agency, Zone4.
Thom Saunders, the CEO of Zone4 Digital Media said, "We created a prototype to provide users with a tool so that they can generate reports on the spot. They can rank by different settings and there are many different ways of showing data. For us, it was about understanding the data and did it meet the value of current customers."
Sonya Henderson-Edbrooke, CIIC Business Adviser, worked with both Graham and Thom as a business mentor to establish agreements before embarking on the pilot project, which was vital.
"Thom understood the importance of data visualisation.
Mining clients tend to be long-term companies, which are very conservative and Thom understood that.
"This was really well thought-through, as Thom and Graham realised that they had a larger opportunity and the potential for greater success.
"It's been a real pleasure to work with Graham and Thom, as they are open to new conversations and are willing to try out radical game changes in the context of a conservative client base," Sonya said.
Graham Lumley, the CEO of GBI, a mining data visualisation company, partnered with Thom Saunders, the CEO of interactive media agency, Zone4 and this is an example of the result.
