We were honoured to bring the iconic Jacaranda Atlas into the digital age with a fully interactive application, and we were thrilled by its rapturous reception.
Let’s digitise an Aussie icon
Jacaranda World Atlas has been a fixture of Australian geography education for over 40 years, but books are so last century, right? So we worked with the Jacaranda team to bring this Aussie icon to 21st century children in a beautiful new interactive application.

Mettro are really good at partnering. Rather than seeing themselves as just a supplier that took the brief and ticked the boxes, they took the project on as their own baby. This project was technically very complicated – there were a lot of problems to solve. Mettro worked with our technical teams every step of the way and made sure the application was a success. Integration work is where a lot of these projects fall over.
