We want to democratise design thinking. We are for the game changers in organisations. The ones who have great ideas or see something that has to change and are prepared to act on it.

What is in a Name?

We are passionate about design thinking as a way to tackle complex challenges. We're for the curious, the changemakers, the doers and the corporate mavericks who are intrigued by our passion, our mission and even our name.

We often get asked about our name and what it means. Here is a little insight into how we came up with the name, Naked Ambition, and how we like to think of it.

/neikid : amˈbɪʃ(ə)n


  1. Naked means real. It’s not being afraid of showing the raw, unfinished, imperfect parts of our work and ourselves


  1. Ambition is something to be proud of. It means getting things done any way you can. Talking to humans. Rough Prototypes. Making things people want. Knowing it might fail and doing it anyway.

Who Are We?

Our passion and experience is in helping people bring ideas to life. We can help you take a human-centred approach to business challenges leveraging our collective 30 plus years of experience across financial, digital and industrial spaces.

Our work gets results thanks to our team of experience designers, design thinkers, personal branding experts and storytellers. We can co-create, facilitate, workshop, hack, jam, prototype and tell a story or two. If these are new action words to your organisation, ask us about how we do this.

We collaborate in everything we do. We are about building your capabilities. We bring in experts where we need to. Experts help us and our clients shape our point of view. It helps us reframe the challenges. It means we solve the right problem before we solve the problem right.
