With 20+ years industry experience in all forms of creative; content creation, brand strategy, design, digital marketing, advertising, web design & development – Oranje is Adelaide’s only all female full service creative agency.
Melinda’s vision when she started the business was to establish Adelaide’s first all female agency. In what was once, one of the most male-dominated industries in the world, things are finally starting to change. More than 20 years on Melinda is making waves.
Our focus is also to increase the status of women working in advertising and the creative industries, encouraging female participation through mentorship, creative direction and leadership.
