Hello. We’re Three Blocks Left, a creative agency for things that matter.

STUDIO

Design with purpose. Ideas for impact. Creativity that connects.

We’re an independent creative agency specialising in branding, design and campaigns. We balance strategy with style, beauty with logic, passion with purpose.

We’re driven by the power of design to solve problems and impact the world at an individual and global scale.

We produce brands, through the line campaigns and communication solutions that captivate audiences, engage emotions and inspire positive action. We are committed to making the world a brighter place. And we won’t lie, we have a great time doing it. Because doing good is good for business.

Established in 2007, we have a strong history of partnering with start-ups, small businesses and big businesses, and some of Australia’s most iconic non-profits and for-purpose organisations.

We shapeshift to meet different briefs and client needs. There are no moulds or automated responses. We pivot, prioritise and respond authentically to the ever-evolving world around us.

OUR APPROACH

Great design springs from good ideas, and good ideas from good conversations.

Creativity is between us, not within us, and that’s why we work with people, not companies. We see our clients as collaborators, working iteratively, building trust and connection with every project.

If it matters to you then it matters to us. It’s as simple as that.

People are at the heart of what we do. Whether that’s our clients and collaborators, our team, industry partners or the audiences we’re designing for.

Our work is researched, inspired and grounded in big, bold and beautiful human truths.

By listening and researching first, we put empathy at the core of our process. When you know the whole story, you can uncover the single most important thing to communicate, and craft the idea from that purpose and motivation.

If you like what you hear and think we’d be a good fit – get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.

OUR TEAM

We’re a dedicated team of creative thinkers and do-ers. With diverse skills we can pull off anything with grit and good humour.

KYLIE HANNAFORD

Founder/Creative Director

With over 15 years of experience in the creative industry, nothing lights Kylie up more than fusing words, ideas and visuals together to create meaningful work for our clients.

Naturally curious, she solves problems multi-dimensionally, and finds inspiration, potential and possibility wherever she goes.

An enthusiastic amateur botanist, Kylie loves watching things grow. Whether it’s brainstorming ideas, developing the team, creating community or tending to the plants slowly but surely overtaking our studio.

VICY WEST

Studio Manager

Having worked agency and client-side for over 12 years across multiple industries, the common theme is Vicy managing all of the things.

She brings to our team her intuition and passion for systems and processes (hello Asana), her sharp attention-to-detail, and perhaps most importantly, her dry British humour.

With the ability to pivot, create order, and get under the skin of what our clients need, she steers our internal ship, gets to the point and cracks us up daily with her one-liners dryer than the Sahara.

MIRANDA EL-ATEM

Senior Designer

Armed with over a decade of design experience and a naturally tactical mind, Miranda always dives deep to discover the what, the why and the how of a project before translating these insights into clever and beautiful visual concepts.

With no off-switch when it comes to looking for inspiration and finessing an idea, she’s not afraid to push creative boundaries and think big picture. She is an eternal optimist and will always say yes to a challenge, even to a month long camping trip despite an instinctive and life-long disdain for camping.*

JOANNA TRAN

Designer

Valuing imagination and realism in equal measure is our grid whiz Joanna. A perfectionist at heart, she thrives under pressure and is obsessed with knowing the rules, so she can decide whether to break them or not.

Client satisfaction is her ultimate driver. She’s resourceful, process-driven and one of those gems you meet in life who just figures it out.

An avid fan of a WIP meeting, she (almost) always reads the spoilers to be prepared for what’s coming, and will happily risk awkward moments with strangers if she can pat their dog in the street.
