Mirimar Boosts its Creative Department with Award-Winning Creative Team Jake Ausburn and Alex Polglase

Apr. 01, 2024

Emmy award-winning, independent creative agency MIRIMAR has added Jake Ausburn and Alex Polglase to its talent team. The pair come from Sydney’s  The Monkeys, part of Accenture Song’s global creative network. 

Ausburn and Polglase have been working together for two and a half years. In that short time, they’ve won the Cannes Grand Prix, shot on the steps of the Sydney Opera House with Aussie director Kim Gehrig for Play It Safe, sold a script to an acting prime minister, and written a story about a rural sports team that was voted Australia’s Best Ad of 2023 by Adland, This is Footy Country.

Ausburn said:

"Working in the U.S. has always been the dream, and tackling big briefs with the tight-knit, ambitious team at MIRIMAR is the perfect realization of that dream. Don’t tell the Aussies, but I look forward to spelling my words with more z’s: realize, idolize, stylize. Lovely."


Polglase added:

"I’m stoked to join the team at MIRIMAR. Their gleaming record of top-tier work for iconic clients makes them quite the port of entry into the States. I can’t wait to get stuck in and see what we can create together."


Jake and Alex are leading the global relaunch of Speedos for the Paris 2024 Summer Olympics. They are also an integral part of the team working on MIRIMAR’s new business initiatives. 

Luke McKelvey / Founder and Managing Director of MIRIMAR said:

"They naturally look to push their work beyond just regular advertising, into entertainment, which is a great fit for us. We’re excited to have them as part of our growing team."


John McKelvey / Founder and Chief Creative Officer of MIRIMAR added:

"Jake and Alex are incredibly talented creatives - smart, great taste, and creatively ambitious. It’s exciting for them to join us and see them thrive in the U.S. on such a big stage."


MIRIMAR works with brands at the intersection of advertising and entertainment creating notable award-winning work for Apple TV+ Priceline, Speedos, Klarna, Squarespace, Gopuff, Expensify, and Faire La Fête. They were named Cannes Lions Independent Agency of the Year—Entertainment for 2022, Ad Age’s Small Agency of the Year 2022, and named one of Fast Company’s World's Most Innovative Companies.
