Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix Digital Experience

“We’re so happy with everything so far and the approach Carter has taken, we really appreciate the update and all the hard work.”

Arthur Gillion, General Manager

The Brief

Helping reinvent the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix experience through digital transformation.

Everyone loves a new beginning. When Melbourne opens its doors to the world in 2021, new hopes and dreams can turn to reality, rivalries on the track are realised, and the stage is set for an unforgettable start to the F1 season. 

With this powerful state of mind, we set out to deliver an electrifying atmosphere digitally, one which reflects the incredible and sophisticated experience of the F1 Australia Grand Prix.

We partnered with an icon of Australia, motorsports to reimagine grandprix.com.au for a new generation of fans and the digital future of sports.


We aimed to bring the world the Formula 1 closer to the current, occasional, and new fans through building cultural relevancy and associations with passion points and references outside of the sport via music, fashion and film. 

By creating a platform to deliver relevant and dynamic content, the F1 Grand Prix brand and message can be delivered seamlessly based on the audience’s interests, location, and the time prior, during, and post the event.

The new digital platform activates engagement and creates anticipation months in advance, helping to drive participation and interest.

Through widening the digital exposure of the F1 Australian Grand Prix, we’re able to increase attendance, raise revenue and engage first-time patrons to further growth.

The new platforms deliver a well-considered, tactile, and transparent information architecture helping to transform the perception of ticket scarcity and overcomes the distance and price barriers. 

By reimagining the customer experience and dramatically simplifying a complex and business-focused ticketing tool enabled greater audience engagement and increased purchase.


With the event globally recognised, it is an opportune moment to propel the brand forward. Enabling growth for both in new ways and activated new audiences, places globally to the sports in Australia and expanding the love and passion with existing fans required impeccable execution.

Growing audiences from exploration to conversion, persuading people on the peripherals of Formula 1 to become lifelong loyal customers is no small feat.

A carbon neutral studio

Carter's fine folk sit at recycled timber desks, type on keyboards powered by rechargeable batteries, walk on carpet made from recycled tyres and plastic bags. They breathe air created by an in-office garden and drink tea heated by an environmentally-friendly kettle. These ‘Digital HTTPsters’ hold meetings within a den of recycled paper accordion walls that weave throughout the studio.

When it’s time to leave, the crew grab their bags from upcycled lockers that once lived at a nearby AFL Club. They flick the switch on low-energy lights powered by 100% wind sourced energy. Journeying home, they walk, ride and catch public transport.

Principal, James Noble, hand-crafted the furniture from recycled timber, layered and sealed using biodegradable glue. Now that’s commitment.
