Driving desire

When you work with us, we’re focused on you – your needs, your industry and your audience. We can help you position for growth, develop something new, and create desire for your brand.


We're passionate about aligning business strategy with design thinking, creating brands with real impact that achieve positive growth.

We create highly tailored digital communications that are focused on user experience, design quality and engaging content.

We don't just hand over your brand identity. We can help you bring it to life – extending the big idea and depth of thinking over time.

Our Expertise

Business Strategy

Working with your team, we construct and manage your brand architecture to distil and communicate the essence of your business. To this, we look at your market context, share and opportunities, your competition, your audience needs and behaviour, and define your point of difference.

Branding Design

Making the right first impression matters, so we’ll create a consistent, clear and high quality brand or corporate message, and align your brand identity with your business plan and goals.

Content Creation

Rich, useful and engaging content adds value to your business. We will tell your brand story with words, pictures, video, infographics, animation, photography and more – making it simple and seamless to get your messages across.

Digital Design

Our studio creates websites that reflect the brand experience, commercial intent and content management needs. All designs are built to be responsive and adaptable so your customers can choose how to view your view content: on their phone, tablet or computer.

Communications

We’ll develop a marketing communications plan that is both powerful and cost-effective – and we can take care of everything from events and collateral to merchandise, employee engagement, social media and advertising.

Project Management

Our creative intelligence is backed by some serious business processes – that includes a project management plan with deliverables and responsibilities, weekly reports, procurement and stakeholder management. It’s all designed to reduce project risk, so you don’t need to worry about budget creep or errors.

Head of Strategy & Operations
TOMORROW FINANCE

The qualities the Ascender team were able to demonstrate when we first met them was their knowledge of our sector, understanding our business and vision and connecting with our culture. They understood the impact on our business if the project wasn’t done properly. Their project management approach took ownership of the projects key dates and deliverables. We felt in safe hands and reassured - we were happy to be guided. Ascender were the right fit.
