A unique way of working that is working for everyone.

An agency’s heart and soul isn’t the name on the door or the funky office space. It’s the people. We have a unique culture that not only attracts the very best, but also nurtures and inspires everyone here to take it to the next level. Engine may be based in Brisbane, but our resources are global; an eclectic mix of brilliant minds from all walks of life, each bringing something unique to the table.
We’re not your typical 9 to 5 agency. We work around the clock, and around the world, adding value to our clients – even while they sleep.

We believe nothing good comes from being chained to a desk. That’s why we promote a more elastic way of working that gives staff the freedom to get out there.

When you encourage people to follow their passions, to live with purpose and to open their minds through study, the result is better work. More intelligent, thoughtful and insightful work.

Just take a look at the world-class campaigns we’ve delivered for our amazing clients. You’ll get the idea.

Tim Weger
Strategist & Managing Director

Tim is one of those guys you’ll love working with. His leadership style is inclusive and informal; he encourages everyone to have a voice, and values the contributions of every team member. His enthusiasm, loyalty, ethical values and smart strategic mind have helped define the agency’s positive change culture.

As Engine’s MD, Tim has been trusted by C-level executives across both the public and private sectors. He has been instrumental to the success of many Queensland Government campaigns over the last decade, as well as for brands such as University of New England, Brisbane Airport Corporation, RSPCA and Ladbrokes.

Tim has many strengths. But crying through movies – the sad ones, the happy ones, and even the chick flicks – isn’t one of them.

Mike Fritz
Creative Director

Mike embarked on his career in Graphic Design with Engine Group in 2004, marking the inception of his professional journey. Over the span of 18 years, he traversed the globe, honing his skills and expanding his horizons, ultimately returning to Engine as a senior creative.

Working on household brands, such as Virgin Australia, Westpac, Tourism QLD, SPC, Don Smallgoods, Telstra, Volvo, John West, Energex, iSelect, and Drumstick, among a plethora of others.
