Isobar Australia is a digital creative agency originally founded in the UK and owned by Aegis Media. In Australia, Aegis Media acquired One Digital in 2001 and changed the name to Isobar. Aegis Media also acquired the relatively much smaller Australian company, Mitchell Communication Group, whose stable of (Australian) brands included digital agency, Visual Jazz. In 2013 the Aegis Group became a wholly owned subsidiary of Dentsu Aegis Network and its parent company, Dentsu. It is the sister agency to Carat, Dentsu Media, Posterscope, McGarryBowen, iProspect and Vizeum.[1]
