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.


The Body Shop — Youth Activist Series

A bright, youthful identity and campaign to support Plan International Australia’s Youth Activist Series.

The Youth Activist Series is a leadership program to help some seriously driven young people be heard and have an impact in areas they’re passionate about.

Working with Plan International Australia and The Body Shop’s local and global teams we created an identity for the program that balances both brands’ guidelines and works in all kinds of environments.

Each campaign shoot featured the ten individuals in the program, telling their stories for use throughout the year across all of The Body Shop’s and Plan’s channels.
