Contributing to thriving communities.

How Can We Help?

Who We Are

Context + Culture + Creativity

We're an agency focused on relationship-building. In ways that are relevant to diverse communities, informed by the lives and experiences of the people in them, drive trust and support, and are shaped by the latest data and technologies.

Whether you need new to enroll students or patients, hire and retain the best employees, or inspire resident support and participation, 3fold has a proven track record in getting our clients the results they need.

Meet the Team

3fold is a full-service, independent marketing and advertising agency based in the capital of California. For more than 20 years, we have been recruiting and activating communities to build meaningful and effective relationships between our clients and their customers.

Our Purpose

When we say, "contributing to thriving communities" what do we mean?

The idea for 3fold started with our founding partners’ previous work: supporting national and state-level workforce development programs. They saw how essential understanding the specific regions, culture, experiences, and priorities of unique communities was for effectively connecting displaced and under-employed workers with new career paths.

They knew this approach could benefit any organization whose success depends on building deep, mutually-beneficial relationships with their customers and communities.

Where We're Involved

We work with people dedicated to making their communities better. Making the places they live and work safer, healthier, and financially secure.

A Culture of Community

Experiencing community to understand how to affect community.

Central to 3fold's culture is community involvement. We believe people who are invested in the community are best positioned to help, communicate, and connect with any community. This is who we recruit. From serving on boards, to running our own community initiatives, to volunteering in our own individual passion projects.

3folders are the perfect partners to help our clients build relationships and reach priority customers.
