Hello there. I’m Josh Saunders, Head of Tech And Creative for Warner Music.
You can reach me on Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram
I'm a creator of Digital Marketing Campaigns, and Digital Products, a team lead and line manager, and an expert web and mobile project manager with 17 years experience.
I manage a brilliant UX/Design and Development team, in an Innovation hub known as Firepit Tech, in Warner Music - and we support the company globally.
I've primarily worked in the music industry, but I've also worked at small digital creative agencies, and at BBC Media Action.
My output includes websites, mobile apps, social media apps, advergames, digital advertising units, and activations that integrate with APIs such as Spotify, YouTube and Twitter.
I've developed web and mobile and social projects for artists such as Gorillaz, Coldplay, Dua Lipa, Rita Ora, Liam Gallagher, David Guetta, Damon Albarn/Blur, Muse, and Swedish House Mafia.
I work directly with partners at Apple, Facebook, Spotify, Snapchat. As a sideline Business Development interest, I recently studied an 'Emerging Markets' Economics Module at Birkbeck (in LSE).
I work on a high volume of projects, including internal platforms for marketers.
Some highlights of fan-facing projects include: a daily algorithmically generated music video for Muse, a Facebook Lyric Quiz Bot for Dua Lipa, an old school platform game for Iron Maiden, and a User Generated Album Art Creator for Coldplay.
My web and mobile work has won awards with Cannes Lion, Webbys, FWA, Drum and MusicAlly.
My current areas of inquiry and development, in terms of engagement and activations for 'fans' or users, are: AR for Smartphone, Voice Apps/VUI for SmartSpeakers, Computer Vision, and Machine Learning.
Thanks for reading.
