We design websites, write copy and consult on ethical marketing for social impact brands to help amplify their change making mission!
Work with us
Ardea was first founded in 2018 by Jas, a copywriter & messaging strategist and Olivia, a brand & UX designer. Together they co-founded Ardea Creative to make websites and build brands centred around community, shared values and ethical business practices.
Ardea is now run by Jas, and we partner with different professionals depending on the project. We choose carefully who we collaborate with and we want our clients to choose us too. Find out more about who we are and what we stand for to see if we are a good fit:
The heart of a business is formed by its values, humanity and ethics.
Our clients created their business out of recognising a genuine need in the world and asking themselves “How can my work meet that need?”
People often find us at the point where they know what they’re here to do and how it can help to disrupt harmful systems to pave the way for social and/or environmental change. The missing piece is getting that message out there with a strong visual identity and captivating storytelling. We help make values-led businesses visible.
The type of clients we’ve worked with before are social enterprises, well-being studios, therapists, artists + creatives, dance + movement businesses, activists, disruptors, sustainable brands and organic farming collectives. If this all feels exciting, maybe you’d like to be next!

“Working with Ardea felt natural from day 1 and it only got better throughout our project. Olivia was able to capture the essence of my brand and turn it into the most aligned visual outcome.
Jas drafted pieces of content for the website that felt exactly how I want them to be: approachable, inclusive, culturally competent and authentic.”
