About us

Main content

Art Processors is a global experiential design and technology company.

We partner with cultural and tourism organisations to invent new realities of human experience.

We offer specialist interactive media and exhibition design services that set a new standard for immersive storytelling, alongside a technology platform that makes it easy to deliver, benchmark and continually improve experiences.

Art Processors began in 2011 with a mission: to change the way a museum could look and feel. We sought to democratise the experience; to create new ways of storytelling, no wall labels or scholarly rhetoric.

When we started out, the technology we needed didn’t exist, so we invented it.

Ten years on, we’re still inventing—dreaming up new ways of storytelling, adding new ways of doing things to our technology platform, and forging new partnerships.

Understanding and continually exploring the unification of experiential design and technology is critical to everything we do. So too is ensuring we have a positive impact on the people who visit the organisations we partner with—it’s why we do what we do.

Our experiences now span the globe and as with many ventures, our story continues to evolve.

What we do

Experiential Design

We experiment and invent new ways of doing things, but people and their stories are the heart of our practice. Our experiences couple deep storytelling with immersive and interactive design, and draw on the growing capabilities of our technology platform.

Our People

Our ‘special sauce’ is our multidisciplinary team. We are artists, strategists, engineers and scientists skilled at harmonising people, place, technology and storytelling to create experiences that resonate with audiences. We believe anything is possible and if it doesn’t exist we invent it.
