Marquise

A long term partnership

We have had the pleasure of working with iconic Australian baby brand Marquise, since 2011.
We work on all facets of the brand communications including strategic planning, visual identity and campaign imagery which is used in-store and across digital platforms. Over the years Marquise has built a strong reputation for these beautiful images, often requested by large retailers to use in their own marketing material, which has given Marquise great exposure in the retail landscape.

In 2018, Marquise under went a brand refresh to modernise the visual identity and define new product categories. As a trusted baby brand, we also saw the opportunity to position Marquise as the go-to baby brand for gifting. We implemented a new colour coded system for easy navigation across product categories and custom pattern-making and stickers to be turned into beautiful gifting.

After years as a wholesale business, we guided the launch of the Marquise online store, paving the way for the brand to become a retail business. The success of online gave Marquise the confidence to branch into a bricks and mortar retail space. Opening in Malvern Central in 2019, Ortolan was instrumental in briefing the concept for the store, appointing designers, shop fitters and visual merchandise teams, ensuring the brand values were upheld and a smooth process to get to launch.

‘We initially employed Ortolan to work on the celebration of 80 years project. They have now been our creative partner for more than 8 years. They understand our brand and our business,
and never cease to amaze us with their ideas.
We see them as an integral part of our past and future growth.’
