The website (check it out HERE) highlights the company’s offering with capabilities including brand development, digital design, creative direction, content marketing, social media campaign management, event production and technical direction, all achieved in a completely in-house capacity.

Working with clients like Seven West Media, Adobe, News Corp, Singapore Tourism and scores of others, the agency has repositioned itself as a trusted partner with unique channels to market in both Travel Weekly and B&T.

The website’s launch solidifies the agency’s presence as an industry leader, offering best in class integrated marketing campaign strategy, design and management, and new opportunities for clients looking for a creative shop that offers fresh thinking to solve the problems that keep them up at night.

Since its inception in 2014, the agency has seen year-on-year growth to the tune of over 150 per cent.

With David Hovenden and Dan Uglow at its helm, the Misfits is set to see an even greater increase in demand for its marketing and event management services from clients across Australia.

In 2017 alone, the company hosted over 30 bespoke events, catering to tens of thousands of people across Australia in the media, travel, sports and hospitality industries.

“The Misfits have taken great strides since our launch three years ago and this newly revamped website demonstrates our willingness to innovate and our determination to provide full-service capabilities for our clients,” creative director and co-founder Dan Uglow said.
