Ian started HammaDigital after working on some of Australia’s most significant digital transformation projects, including Macquaire.com, Caltex.com.au, and OFX. Seeing a need to connect the creative with analytics, he started Hamma as a Data + Content agency.
Since then, he’s helped build the team’s experience and expertise to focus on platforms such as HubSpot, Google 360, Fullstory, Contentful, and Shopify Plus.
Ian majored in Indigenous studies, Anthropology, and Government at the University of Sydney. He remains interested in how the world of digital and advertising is impacting businesses, brands, and societies generally.
He tries to keep the overall big picture in mind when working with clients.
Working in commercial litigation and insolvency, Ian worked in the UK for Debevoise & Plimpton and in Australia for Kemp Strang and Gadens.
Although he no longer practices, he remains interested in law, privacy, and how digital can impact and automate legal practices, especially around digital assets during the insolvency process.
Shortly after leaving the law, Ian was accepted into the 2012 run of AWARD school in Sydney while working as a copywriter at MercerBell (later acquired by Saachi).
Working on clients including Toyota, Mastercard, and Allianz, he won awards for an innovative pre-roll YouTube ad for Allianz. After a few years, he switched to DT (now AKQA), working as the lead content strategist for big web builds and content strategy. He moved to Melbourne in 2015 and worked for Isobar on the Holden and Jetstar accounts.
Business. Ian Started Hamma (known initially as HammaJack) in January 2016. With a focus on data and content, he quickly saw the need to be agile in adaptive processes and projects and has continued to evolve the business into what it is today. Long-term clients include R U OK, World of Music, Collarts, VitrineMedia Australia, and New Zealand.
He has fashioned the business into its present form, with a strong focus on delivering lasting value and insights to clients in three key areas projects, MOD, and venture.
