Marilyn is a creative agency in Melbourne. For over 15 years, we’ve used strategy and great design to help brands tell their stories and solve businesses’ stickiest problems.
We like to become a part of the furniture – if your furniture was really clever and went home at the end of every day. We ask a million questions, explore heaps of weird left-turns and float dozens of ideas until we settle on whatever will get your message seen and heard in crowded and noisy markets.
It sounds like a bit of a cliché to say, ‘No two jobs are the same’, but there’s truth to it. We go in fresh to every project, get tactical when deadlines are tight, and dive even deeper when long-term projects are put in front of us. We want you to trust us to get it right, and sometimes that also means trusting us to wander into the edges of your brief and come back with something a bit left-of-centre. Structure and processes get stuff done, and bravery and flexibility make it fun.
Ganzo is Tuscan slang for “cool”, so we went deep into Italian cool, came up rich in kitsch and ran with it. Looking to the laid back fit out of the venue and the fun, casual style of dining the Ganzo team was aiming for, it was important the branding was similarly unrestrained. Various typography, imagery and icons are stuck together by a limited colour palette and applications that teeter on the edge of hectic but stay on the right side of fun.
