About us

Hello  stranger  friend.

Inlight is a Collingwood based digital agency that uses design and technology to solve complex and interesting business problems.

We are passionate about working in partnership with our clients, helping them leverage digital to enhance their business, deliver real outcomes and help to support them as they grow.

We have had the privilege of working with a diverse range of brands, and approach every client's business challenge from a new perspective, working within the agile methodology to deliver strategy, digital communications, experiences and technology solutions.

History

Once upon a time

From our humble beginnings in 2008, from the back of a garage in Camberwell, we have assembled some of the industry's best talent to build the Inlight you see today.

But our fundamentals haven't changed.

We challenge what is assumed to be status quo, we look upstream to how we can solve digital challenges at their core, we think about your customers and centre our solutions around their needs.

The digital landscape evolves quickly and our largest clients look to us to help them deliver unique and engaging experiences with the speed of a tech startup.
