We are Luminary

Luminary (n). One who has attained eminence in their field. One who inspires. Luminary supports, protects and guides the way. 

We've rebranded

Our name is new but our place in the digital landscape is not. For almost two decades we cemented our reputation in the world of digital as Get Started. Times have changed and we have evolved, but our commitment to creating digital experiences that shine remains

Why the name Luminary?
About Us

We’re a digital agency that’s been around since 1999. 

Experience is our point of difference, both in terms of the experience we hold, and the experiences we create. We bring together the brightest minds in digital to craft experiences that are intuitive, engaging, impactful and enlightening. We are known for our work on complex web projects for leading Australian brands, but we also do everything from digital transformation and user experience design, to digital marketing and managed cloud services. 

Mission

To make digital bright and the human experience brighter. 

What does this mean? It means making the websites we build perform quickly and flawlessly. It means helping our clients navigate stakeholder sign-offs so they can win at their jobs and go home happy. It means giving our team the freedom to work in a way that works for them.

Ultimately, it means creating experiences that delight, excite and inspire.

Our Values

Real

We're authentic and down-to-earth, true to ourselves and honest to our clients. We say what we'll do, and we do what we say.

Solid

We've been in the business almost 20 years. Everything we say and do is backed by solid experience and proven results.

Human

We put people first every time – in our business and our work. Creating tactile and genuine human experiences is what drives us.

Bright

We aim to be the brightest minds in digital – intelligent, insightful and enlightening. We’re always looking for new ways to make a difference.
