Phones Are Good for Three

As mobile phones are seemingly getting a hard time, Three UK is taking on the cynics and bringing some balance to the debate with its new brand campaign Phones Are Good.

We help Three tackle the topical debate that ‘phones are bad’ by reimagining pivotal moments in history if phones had been available – from starving cavemen ordering Deliveroo, to Henry VIII’s wives avoiding execution thanks to Tinder.

The tine-travelling film, directed by Ian Pons Jewell, was launched today on Three Twitter channel, before appearing across social channels, digital, TV and cinema.

Our design team worked on press and out of home creative which will start appearing nationwide this week – check it out below.




Makers’ Residency reopens with Wilfrid Wood

This week saw the reopening of MakersResidency, a curated creative workspace in our public-facing window in east London.

Starting this week and running until November 23, we’re collaborating with six London-based makers who will be using the Hanbury Street space to create, live in front of the public.

This year’s MakersResidency is kicking off with sculpture artist Wilfrid Wood (Spitting Image), who’ll be inviting members of the public for a live, 30-minute portrait sculpting.

From October 22, passersby will be able to watch London-based multimedia designer Kelly Anna at work, while the following week will see floral design studio Worm create a Halloween-themed installation.

The fourth maker, taking up residency from November 5, is stop-motion animator Matthew Cooper, who will be followed by 3D chocolate printers, Candy Mechanics. Finally, from November 19, Cool Shit will be bringing their giant inflatable expertise to the space.

Please pop down to Hanbury St to see the makers at work!
