The team

We’re no oil paintings.

To cut a long story short, we are Ugly; the brainchild of three (handsome) digital self-starters, championing branding, web & digital design to startups, scaleups and SMEs globally.

We see design not simply as an ingredient of your brand’s overall identity; more a lasting first impression for new clients and customers, an advantage over your competitors, even a confidence boost in a time of need.

Every brand has got something to say, but what’s a great story without a great storyteller? Probably not half as interesting as it could be. How you are and how you look are not mutually exclusive, so we don’t treat them as such.

We’re able to gather so much more about a company now just by looking at their website than we ever could looking at their shop window. Where branding lets your audience know “who” you are, your website should tell them “why” you’re important.

What our clients say

Ugly were a pleasure to work with and delivered a really high quality animation for us. They were incredibly patient as we felt our way through our first ever digital 6 sheets campaign, a trait that is really appreciated when working with an agency.

Emily Churchill, Brand Creative & Comms Manager at Rude Health

Working with Ugly was a very easy and enjoyable experience! The guys came up with some great ideas and were able to create excellent content within very short timeframes.

Mark Brennan, Head of Marketing at Psycle London

The Ugly team has helped us establish a fresh new brand image that is more inline with our positioning and values as a company. As a growing tech business we appreciate both the flexibility and professionalism in which they work with us, becoming a true extension of our team. They exude capability, creativity and confidence, with the ability to communicate and work with stakeholders at all levels.

Helen Slaven, Chief Revenue Officer at Poq

The ugly team has been a dream to work with. The three musketeers can deliver on all need states for launching a website, design, copy and building the site from scratch. I have truly enjoyed working with the whole team on designing and rebranding my website. I would highly recommend their services!

Natalie Alibrandi, Founder at Nali Consulting

I have really enjoyed working with the team at Ugly Media. They got the brief straight away in that I wanted an optimistic, fun and playful brand. I really believe that Aglais really stands out now in the crowd and that is thanks to the energy, dedication and commitment that the guys brought to the project. They have been fun to work with and massively responsive to urgent requests which is always a huge bonus. If you want a modern and refreshing response to your brief, then Ugly Media should definitely be considered.

Natalie Fowler, Founder at Aglais

I’d recommend Adam to anyone in a heartbeat! He’s one of the most patient, creative and capable web developers I’ve worked with. Not only does he work hard to perfect the job at hand, but he also goes an extra mile to give me extra recommendations, which is not a requirement. Simply amazing!
