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.


Lim Peh’s

Lim Peh’s came to us with name – a swear word that loosely translates to “I’m your father” — and a plan to bring Singaporean flavours to Australians in simultaneously new and traditional ways.

The number one rule for the resulting identity is that there are no rules. There’s no structured grid, there’s noodle-y chaos. There are eight logos, including a hawk with a bowl on its head (hawker bowls, get it?!). A colour palette of non-colours and a sauce, black and white being a hallmark of rebellion in Singaporean culture.

Lim Peh’s is a little bit Singaporean, a little bit Australian and a little bit in between– perfectly smooshed together in a ball of noodle-y chaos.
