We are Creators, Innovators and Storytellers.

“What sets us apart is our curiosity. It has encouraged us to take on and overcome some highly unusual and challenging projects. It’s also what drives the ongoing intensity of our training. This combination of experience and skill provides us with the confidence to explore further and invent the means to get there faster.” Ben Casey CEO Spinifex Group.

Spinifex combines the age-old art of storytelling with tools of the digital-age. We have developed a unique style of technology infused storytelling that enables brands to connect with their most important audiences in more magical and memorable ways. Spinifex Group is a creative studio, experiential digital agency, and content production company all rolled into one. Not only do we come up with great ideas, we bring them to life too. And, the agency does it all in-house across our four global studios.

Our rare breed of original thinkers includes some of the finest creatives, directors, artists, animators, technologists, developers, producers and technicians from around the world. We have been exposed to vast and varied challenges over the past 30 years delivering powerful experiences on some of the world’s biggest stages. We’ve honed our skills across countless events, exhibitions, festivals, shows and product launches creating rich content experiences that range from record breaking in scale to 6” screens. While these formats constantly evolve, our overarching objective has remained unchanged… to create experiences that are engaging, memorable and relevant, but most importantly, which connect at an emotional level.
