Zodal specializes in the design of visually compelling digital content across devices through the use of innovative technologies and sound usability.
Zodal was established on the shores of New Brighton Beach, Christchurch, in New Zealand in April 2003 under the direction of Chris Blair and Ghada Vanderpool. The team is comprised of thinkers, developers and visionaries. Each member of the Zodal team has studied in a field related to new media – from Design, Multimedia, Education, Architecture and Computer Science. Our team has solid technical experience and beyond that our clients appreciate our creativity, people skills and general passion towards our work.
We are a truly dynamic company, with key Zodal team members hailing from Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Korea, China and oh of course New Zealand. If you are lucky enough to visit us by the beach (go on then, give us a call!), you’ll instantly feel the buzz of creative juices. You may be amazed at the many different lilts on the Kiwi accent, and you’ll definitely know that we are the right company with the right attitude to help you market your brand increasing your global reach.
Our process, like our people, is professional and flexible, with the success and satisfaction of our clients being of the highest importance. Our expertise has been focused on mobile and other devices, such as web applications, kiosks, IPTV, PlayStation Portable (PSP) and mp3 players. Our team has gained invaluable knowledge and experience within the internet and mobile and devices industries, this has been applied into our customizable technologies.
We have a history of applying innovative technology to design to help our clients progress into new markets and disrupt the market in existing ones.
