About Us

Audio-visual, multimedia and software design to inspire, delight and enthral.

What we do

Through our audio-visual, software, interactive and immersive creations, we deliver inspirational digital experiences to captivate millions of visitors in the messages of world-class organisations and attractions.

With decades of sector experience we’re trusted to design unique exhibits and entire digital galleries within nationally and globally significant attractions. Our Services have covered a world of subjects and messages through film, soundscape, projections, interactives, apps, AR, VR and much more. Delivering only the highest quality work, we design all our pieces in-house so every commission is bespoke and robust – receiving our full ‘hands-on’ attention.

With boundless ideas, passion and technical skills we open the minds of audiences to anywhere a client wants them to go – where will we take yours?

Our approach - putting people first

We focus on the human detail behind a story, digitally connecting content with visitor emotion and providing memorable, positive experiences for all.

Our creative, talented and highly personable people collaborate with partners, clients and experts to question, push and design exhibits that ignite audience hearts and minds. Together we inspire, delight and enthral with extraordinarily memorable digital experiences for client, content, location and visitor.

Our ideas, skills and technology create great experiences but to make it the best, we put people first.
