Find your why

Let’s be honest, anyone can craft an About page with ChatGPT. We don’t shy away from that.
But understanding the “why” behind what we do? That’s a different story.

We love what we do. Not just after the coffee kicks in 45 minutes into the day, but all day, every day. You’ll find us sketching ideas on napkins, adding another bit of signage to our camera roll, or taking another screenshot we’ll never check. It’s the way of the creative.

The best part? We get to collaborate with startups, scale-ups, and visionary projects. We build long-lasting partnerships with people we respect, constantly pushing and challenging each other to do our best work. There’s nothing like solving a creative problem and watching a project grow.

With us, there’s no need for “sorry to ask for this…” emails. You’re giving us the space to do exactly what we were made to do. We love every minute of it.

Meet the founders

It just takes an interesting name, or a spark of colour, and from that thought, we become Ambitious. We continually refine our skills and expertise as we continue to grow. Both our client list and team.

We like to work with people we respect. Ambitious individuals who respect themselves and are confident in their direction. Our participation in a project is as much as you need from us. Whether it’s building a brand, an ongoing relationship or a one-off wow.

Importantly, no man (or woman) is an island. We are always excited to collaborate with other creatives and help find the best ideas from a range of other agencies, freelancers and artists.

Visit Us?

If lockdown taught us one thing (and it taught us a lot), it’s that our physical location is a lot less important than it once was.
We have moved to a remote model, where collaborators and staff work from their own chosen spaces. These are home offices, co-working spaces or local cafes.
After a year of testing we have found that productivity is up, mental well-being is up and job satisfaction is us. Just because we occasionally working tracksuit pants, doesn’t mean our creative work is any different. We have actually found our work quality has increased.

So if you fancy meeting us, we’ll find an interesting spot that works for everyone to have a good face-to-face chat and a coffee. However, we do conduct the majority of our meetings over zoom/google/FaceTime to keep our productivity up and environmental impact down.

Ambitious Culture

110% into every project… no exceptions.

It’s our job to be better, find new ideas and go the extra distance that we haven’t gone before.


Always overdeliver and go for the wow!

There is always an extra touch of detail we can find and create a real wow.


Create things that inspire some good and happiness

Whether it’s bringing added attention or just a little smile, good design is what all we do.


There is Opportunity Everywhere

The odd bump in the road and course changes are going to be a part of every project. We can either complain, or we can take it to the next level. The choice is ours.


Best Idea Wins

Ideas should be a meritocracy – a good idea can come from anyone (at any time). No egos, just results.
