Our front-end engineering team will work closely with your designers to translate their vision into code. We'll take your product designs into a functioning React application in no time.


It's us and you. We'll create a seamless experience for your users with excellent usability whilst retaining and celebrating your brands identity.


We're no one-trick ponies. Whilst we're seriously passionate about front-end development, our team has excellent back-end skills and can assist in creating API's and services in order to communicate with the front-end.

Quality Assurance

It's not quite over when its done. We put in place rigorous usability, accessibility, performance and regression tests to ensure your product stands boldly for years to come.

Nomad Radio

Nomad Radio is an independent, not-for-profit, Sydney based internet radio station. Broadcasting underground talent from Australia.

We created an end-to-end product, including deployment, back-end integrations, API's, authentication and of course a React front-end.

React - GraphQL - Next.js - TypeScript


Scythe was founded in Sydney, Australia out of a desire to tackle complicated front-end applications and create brilliant user experiences.

Web development was once a fairly simple endeavour, a few html files and a bit of css was all that was needed. After 20 years of the industry trying to improve on this, it seems that we had it right at the start. Our belief is that websites should be simple and delightful to use. Whilst you can do a lot on the web, do you need to?

Our approach leans on simple, agile development practices. We look beyond the requirements and instead investigate ways to create more value for the user and in turn the business.

Whilst we believe in staying tech agnostic, we have a toolbox with some of our favorite technologies we use frequently.

  • React
  • TypeScript
  • Gatsby
  • Contentful
  • AWS
