Who Is Dando?
We’re a creative digital agency almost two centuries in the making. The Dando story began in 1853, when a young man called John Dando stepped off the British migrant ship, Velore. In the years that followed he quite literally made his stamp on Melbourne, becoming one of the city’s best-regarded blacksmiths. From his forge on Bridge Road, John Dando nailed the shoes onto horses that powered the booming 19th Century economy.
Today another Dando operates on the same Richmond street – deeply immersed in an industry that’s transforming its 21st Century counterpart. By doing cutting-edge work for awesome businesses and brands, we also like to think of ourselves as pioneers. And we’re determined to build on a name that’s become synonymous with this iconic part of Australia’s best city.
There’s much more to the Dando story – find out how a tale that starts with the pioneering blacksmith leads directly to the door of our digital agency.
