We are hardhat

An independent creative agency helping brands capitalise on the how, when, where, what and why of human behaviour.
Founded at the dawn of 'digital' in 2005, we get what makes people tick, click, swipe, buy and believe.
As times, trends and technologies have changed, so have we, growing to become one of Australia's most innovative full-service agencies.


Created On

From stories to experiences, ads to interfaces, we believe that today's best work champions 'brand' and 'user' in equal measure. We think wide so that big ideas become whole ideas; because while a 30 second ad might get people believing in a brand, a three second wait on its website can get them leaving.


On expertise

Hardhat is a 40-strong team of thinkers and makers lead by respected communications experts in the fields of behavioural economics, strategy, creativity, UX and craft. From different angles, we work together, transforming behavioural insights into brand ideas and experiences.

We believe you can only build a great brand if you build a great working partnership first.
