We started out in 1999 with a firm belief that there’s a better way to do things. A better way to work. With clients. And with each other. Though what we do has expanded as we’ve grown, that belief hasn’t changed one bit.

Two of Threespot’s founders were in different post-punk DC bands, and one of those was actually a band people have heard of; our third founder was a freelance writer. So wearing multiple hats, collaborating, working hard, and thinking on our feet is who we are, and who we’ve always been.
Birthplace of the Gin Rickey, the drinking straw, and Threespot.
For as long as we’ve had an office, we’ve been committed to doing business in Washington, DC. We settled in Columbia Heights because it is easy for our employees and our clients to reach by car, bike, foot, or Metro. We have loved growing up alongside the neighborhood, surrounded by many of DC’s off-the-beaten path bars and restaurants.

Our offices are in the historic Tivoli Theatre building, a recently-restored 1924 movie theatre. Our studio is an open collaborative workspace, and despite all the activity it still manages to be a place where we can put our heads down (or together), focus, and get good work done.
