Chris Deary

Client creative director


Chris has worked in media for over a decade. As a journalist he wrote for The Guardian, Manchester Evening News and sports magazines before moving into digital at News UK, where he managed online communities for The Sun, News of the World and London Paper. A stint at Hearst Magazines launching social media projects was followed by three years at the climate change charity Global Cool, overseeing all digital activity for partnerships with Vodafone, Eurostar and various music festivals. Since joining Zone, Chris has led creative strategies and campaigns for the Nike Foundation, London School of Economics, BT’s Supporters Club, Prostate Cancer UK and Action On Hearing Loss.

Strange but true:

Chris was once rescued by the fire brigade after getting his head stuck in some railings. In his defence, he was four years old and being very poorly supervised by the designated 'responsible' adult.
