In an Australian first, Luminary has been named as a Kentico Kontent Premium Partner, the highest partner level attainable. 

Kentico Kontent (formerly known as Kentico Cloud) is Kentico’s headless CMS offering. Luminary is now one of just four Premium Partners worldwide. The other three – Emakina, MMT Digital and Isobar – are headquartered in Europe.

Since the platform’s launch in 2017, Luminary’s development team – led by CTO and Kentico MVP Andy Thompson – has worked closely with Kentico to evolve the product, directly supporting Kentico in building the boilerplate for the platform and continuing to be involved in testing and refining it. Luminary Technical Lead Emmanuel Tissera also launched the world’s first website on the platform.

Over the past three years, Luminary has built a solid Kentico Kontent clientele, with a particularly strong focus on professional services firms. Luminary’s current Kentico Kontent clients include Cancer Council Australia, legalsuper, Holding Redlich, Maple-Brown Abbott and Adviceline Injury Lawyers. 

The Premium Partner status recognises Luminary as a leader in the implementation of Kentico Kontent, as well as a significant contributor to the platform’s ongoing enhancement. 

“We couldn’t be more proud to be named a Premium Kontent partner,” said Luminary CTO Andy Thompson. “While we’ve been quite openly excited about working with Kontent for some time, being awarded Premium Partner status acknowledges the even more important part, which is the work we’ve done providing expert advice and implementation of the product with and for our clients.”

In the same week as Luminary’s Kontent Premium Partner status was announced, the agency also won Best Kontent Implementation in the Kentico Site of the Year Awards for its work on the legalsuper website

Kentico Cloud has undergone a rebrand, and is now called Kontent. In my opinion, it was long overdue! You might have seen the marketing from Kentico about the new name and image, but here are my thoughts on the transformation from the agency side.

We've been preaching the benefits of headless CMS and microservices architecture to our clients for a couple of years now. So I decided it was time to put my money where my mouth is!

Holding Redlich

Law firm Holding Redlich was looking for a site that would convey a sense of approachability and provide easy access to the firm's substantial library of content.


legalsuper chose to use Kentico Kontent – Kentico’s headless CMS offering – as the platform for its new website.
