3rd Edge helps brands make better connections with people.

As a mission-driven marketer or development executive, your goal is to build enduring, mutually beneficial relationships with your audience. You may be launching a new product or service. Perhaps you desire to revitalize your marketing program or need to tell the world about the life-changing work your charity is doing. You’re willing to take risks for your message to break through. Your challenge is, “How do I move forward?”

That’s where 3rd Edge comes in. We’re catalysts. Partners. Since 2001, we’ve helped dozens of organizations develop brand experiences that engage, inform and persuade. Each of our relationships begins with learning.

Getting to know your business, audience and culture is vital to what we do. The insight we gain serves as the foundation for all our creative and strategic work. We’re agile. We can develop communications that speak to your audience wherever they live. Online. In environments. Through printed matter.

We measure how people react and use the results to improve the brand experiences we develop for you. While we’re pleased as punch that our work has garnered international recognition, what’s most satisfying is when a client tells us that the work has helped them achieve their goals.

Frankie Gonzalez Principal + Creative Director

Frankie is a Parsons School of Design grad who absolutely loves typography and design. He thrives solving visual communications challenges. As Creative Director for 3rd Edge, he’s won numerous awards and been published internationally. A former Assistant Art Director at The New York Times, he’s a gregarious chap with coffee in his veins who for some strange reason loves the smell of ink on paper. Frankie will tell you that what he enjoys looking at most are his lovely wife and bouncy children.
