What
Drives
Us.

We specialize in the design and development of brands and digital media, bolstering our clients in the marketplace through detailed discovery, great design, creative solutions, and honed-in strategy. Guided by our core values, we believe there’s little that hard work, curiosity, mutual respect and really loud music won’t accomplish.

What
Leads
Us.

We are real people, showing up every day and passionately doing good work. We relish growth and take every opportunity for improvement in our communication, our processes, and our relationships. No pencil pushing. No time card punching. Just a team of values driven creatives, thrilled to have the privilege of doing what we do, for clients we love.

OUR CORE VALUES


RESPECT


We respect each other enough to let everyone do what they’re good at with autonomy and we respect our clients by keeping projects in scope and on schedule.

WORK SMART


We throw on some elbow grease, and we design, develop and iterate, persisting until the job gets done well. And we learn something along the way.

BE INTENTIONAL


We love our projects, our clients and the people we work with. Our work is done with deliberate, measured strategy, to bring useful, beautiful and solid creative into the world.

COMMUNICATE


What do you need? How can we help? We don’t shy away from problem solving, preferring to better our systems, encourage everyone and improve ourselves through our work.

BE TRANSPARENT


In all we do, we strive to let our values shine, always improving and never afraid to ask for help. Every project is an opportunity for growth.

TRUST


Trust is an all-way street. We trust each other to do what needs to be done, and we strive to be trustworthy with all the things placed in our care.

DO GOOD


We believe there’s a bigger picture and there’s no internal happiness without sharing the good. We support Charity: Water to help bring life and dignity to people all around the world, through clean drinking water.

What
Moves
Us.

Founded in 2006, Charity: Water works with local communities around the world to find the best sustainable solution for bringing clean water to those without access. With complete transparency and integrity, Charity: Water uses 100% of donations in the field to boost the wellness, economy, education and quality of life of entire communities. When people have access to clean water, amazing things happen. Ambient is honored to donate a percentage of all our project proceeds to Charity: Water.
