Our History

Cerebrum (Aust) Pty Ltd is a full service digital agency with over 20 years of experience in digital strategy and implementation. Formed on the cusp of the digital revolution — before laptops, smart phones, mobile devices, and the online environment became fundamental to business success.

Cerebrum has comprehensive experience developing sophisticated digital solutions creating real value for clients. We're about intelligent simplicity, working with a range of diverse clients, from small businesses through to large multinational enterprises. We take a holistic view, not led by tech but by the humans who are using it.

Cerebrum have been at the forefront of exploiting the potential of the internet and digital technology. As new opportunities arise in the digital space, we are able to translate them directly into competitive advantages for our clients. As we have grown and transformed since our early days, so too have we helped our clients transform and grow.

Our Team

Everyone in our team is here because it's our passion. Back in 2002, we chose to leave the big agency world to build something fresh, innovative, and creatively free. We’re loaded with experience and full of enthusiasm, and we’re determined to make a measurable difference for our clients. Our investment lies in solving real needs for people.
