About

3:AM is a multi-disciplinary creative studio working across the fields of design, motion, photography, and film with a heavy focus on branding.

Who we are

 

We’re on a mission to launch long-lasting brands, products, and services that have a positive impact on the world. That’s our way to improve the quality of life of those we reach.

 

Creating great brand identities, provocative images, beautiful event experiences, friendly user interfaces, and animated graphics are what we love best. Our projects strive to define purpose, create significance, spark curiosity and joy.

 

Our work is designed to function across many applications—physical, digital, and spatial. We care deeply about high-quality production, flawless execution, and value working with brands that understand the importance of investing in quality design.

Our process

 

A great idea can come at any moment. Sometimes at the most inconvenient of times. Capturing a great idea requires dedication and creating an environment for creativity to blossom. It’s about discovery.

 

We start by gathering information: Asking the Important Questions. Identifying The Problem. Finding the Right Angle. The result? Great ideas with a strategy to match it.

 

To execute on our creativity, we structure each project into stages, organise tasks within, and timeline every milestone from start to finish. What does this mean? Projects delivered on time. Regular communication. Results.
