A New Marlin Arrival

Marlin is happy to announce the arrival of Sean Jones, Developer. Sean has developed a range of web apps, created a fully functional e-commerce platform in less than two months and discovered a way to turn his dog’s fleas into Skittles. When he’s not being a loyal netizen, he’s educating himself about Rapid Application Development, playing video games with his brother and going outdoors. Canoeing, hiking, going to the lake, fighting off hungry raccoons with primal grunts and axes (seriously), you name it and Sean enjoys it. Well, everything but black licorice and Justin Bieber. But who would hold that against him? Welcome aboard, Sean.

Marlin Embraces New Subculture

There’s been an exciting subculture growing at Marlin for a while and it’s recently attracted so much attention that we decided it deserved a promotional video and a logo exploration. Now, we proudly introduce to you Marlin’s very own Pipe Club. Check out the video and logo evolution below.

We borrowed Mumford & Sons “After the Storm” for this video. And we’ll be happy to give it back if Mumford or sons so desires.

Designed by the marvelous Brian Collins.

There are currently five Marlin Pipe Club members. James brings the fire, Brian brings the stamina (and wisdom), Adam brings the good looks, Q usually forgets to bring anything, and Jared brings the filthy, filthy jokes.

Club Requirements:

A Pipe*

*Unless you’re Q or Brian.

Now accepting applications.

Say Hello to Curtis Green

It’s our pleasure to introduce Curtis Green, a new Associate Creative Director. Curtis comes to us all the way from Kansas City where he worked on clients like Kashi and Southwest Airlines. He also had a brief circus act riding bicycles blindfolded and shooting cannons at flat screens playing live sports. But he doesn’t like to talk about that. He’s already making friends with some great restaurants, bars, campsites and abandoned buildings. But not poison ivy. Never poison ivy. As long as he doesn’t bring out the cannons again, we’re more than happy to have him. Welcome, Curtis.

Fair Go Bro

 We loved this Virgin Mobile Australia promotion featuring Springfieldian Doug Pitt. Maybe you’ve heard of his more famous brother? The second-most-famous-Pitt-in-the-family is a familiar face to some around here as the good folks at our sister agency TAP have helped with Mr. Pitt’s charitable organization Care To Learn. Go show the Like.

Shelbey Stockton Joins Marlin

We’re happy to announce a new addition to the Marlin team. Shelbey Stockton, Senior Account Executive, brings us nine years of marketing experience in both B2C and B2B. Shelbey has a wonderful appreciation for all things outdoors, including gardening, fishing, camping, bottle-feeding calves and the ever-exciting NASCAR races. When she’s not outside she’s hanging out with her two sons, listening to Eric Church, dreaming of exotic scuba diving locations and being a breath of fresh air for the office. Happy to have you, Shelbey.
