Lightwell has been creating multimedia technology and interactive experiences for cultural institutions for over 15 years. Our core project team of designers and developers have worked together on over 200 video and interactive programs for different clients throughout Australia.
Our guiding principle is to create user-centred experiences. We work with curators, researchers, communities, architects, exhibition designers and other expert teams, facilitating a collaborative design process from start to final delivery.
Drawing on our wealth of experience in this industry and our well-established codebase, we consistently deliver unique, informative and durable installations made for today’s audiences.
