About

Ivy Tower was founded in 2020 in response to the increased need for academics to share their research and demonstrate impact through digital channels, including websites, e-newsletters, social media, and blogs.

After searching for a digital agency that specialised in helping academic clients showcase their research online, and coming up short, the Ivy Tower team got to work blending their backgrounds in design, entrepreneurship, and academia to create a digital agency for academics.

Ivy Tower is a collective of graphic designers, photographers, videographers, content creators, and website developers led by Dr Bronwyn Eager. Together, we help academics showcase their research online.
