Thinkerbell represents the coming together of scientific enquiry and hard core creativity – or as we like to call it, ‘Measured Magic’. We are an agency of Thinkers and Tinkers (which one are you?) and have extensive experience in the worlds of media (paid, owned, earned, and shared), research, strategy, and creative execution. We have helped some of Australia’s best known and most loved brands find their inner magic.

We promise to push you out of your comfort zone, and nurture your inherent brilliant qualities at the same time. The Institute of Measured Magic is our training and development program where we keep brains sticky with internal and external tailored training throughout the year. We also develop personal Measured Magic Indicators (MMIs are our version of KPIs) to ensure everyone is growing in their role and beyond.

We kick off every week with Measured Mondays, our all agency, super-wip and finish every Friday at 4pm with Magic Hour, where we get creative and weird together.

On top of your regular leave, everyone also gets a Mind Expansion Project per year, up to 5 consecutive days of extra leave per year for you to expand your mind and explore something new (that is something you wouldn’t normally do and something you’ve never done before), and then share back your experience with the agency. Pretty interesting eh? What would you do?
