We’re newish! We’re passionate and love what we do.

As Australia’s first student-run agency, we offer something never seen before. Drive, innovation and a fresh outlook are the foundation of everything we do. With the industry’s best at our side, we provide top to tail solutions to take any business big or small to the next level.

So who exactly are we?

We are a diverse group of hand-picked UQ students from a wide range of disciplines. Ranging from backgrounds in Marketing, Advertising, Economics, Communications and I.T, we have a spread of talents allowing us to tackle any problem.

Newish was created to be a place of work-integrated learning where we can apply skills learned in the classroom to real-life solutions.
