Marketing and Communications Manager
NSW TREASURY CORPORATION (TCORP)
I have worked with many agencies in my working life. I was immediately impressed with Ascender’s professionalism and ability to understand my complex organisation easily. They are clever, very responsive and concerned about their clients. Their quality of work is impressive. They manage projects well and always deliver. I see them as a valuable extension of my team.

WORK PLACE GENDER EQUALITY AGENCY
The Workplace Gender Equality Agency engaged Ascender to design a logo and reinvigorate our visual identity in 2012. Some designers might feel constrained by having to work within government branding guidelines, but not Ascender. Their imagination resulted in a creative, flexible and practical solution to meet our needs. The success of the brand continues to be evidenced through positive feedback from stakeholders.
Group Manager Investor Relations & Corporate Affairs
Ascender were highly recommended to us in 2013, and were given the task of completing our Annual Report and supporting collateral suite. The brief was minimalist design aligned to the ROC oil brand. They picked up our brand and successfully managed it. The result was a very smart looking Annual Report and accompanying reports, exactly what we were looking for. Their attention to detail, efficient project management and friendly, flexible attitude meant that the project was delivered on time, no fuss.
Ascender did the naming for my first restaurant ‘Longrain’, and went on to design the logo for its little brother ‘Shortgrain’. When we popped over to Potts Point to open our second restaurant, ‘The Apollo’, Ascender created the look that complemented the building, food and interior direction. Most recently, they designed and produced ‘Longrains’ new website. What I like most about working with Ascender is that it’s easy and smooth – their back of house is as good as their front of house!
