Rationale

The 3fiftysix media concept was born from an inspirational athletic performance by Chris O'Hare, a young British athlete in which he ran a mile indoors in a time of 3 minutes and 56 seconds. The performance, ranked 4th in the world, was the fastest indoors by a British Athlete in 2011 and the 2nd fastest ever by a Scot. This performance, whilst noteworthy, was simply a milestone in a journey of continuous improvement underpinned by absolute determination to achieve the best possible objective. A commitment to such milestones is supported by an infrastructure of supportive team members in a dynamic and progressive environment.

 
Whilst in pursuit of athletic excellence the achievements were complemented by embracing a social responsibility by caring for young children suffering from cancer. Through voluntary work with patients at a hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA, the athlete has shown a friendly and caring attribute of equal importance, balancing results and people orientation. These are exactly the tenets upon which 3fiftysix media build its corporate attitudes and defining principles.

The analogy to 3fiftysix media is the pursuit of world-class standards, which reflect physical, and psychological determination, a commitment to excel, balanced with determination to achieve results whilst embracing the importance of symbiotic team involvement. 3fiftysix media provides clients with innovative media solutions in line with their marketing strategies. Such media solutions cover a broad myriad of channels from high level publishing through quality print media to web and cross platform digital applications.

3fiftysix media's visual identity encompasses all of these principles in its design concept. Our typeface is 'Roboto' which is a clear, bold and precise typestyle reproduced in solid black giving maximum contrast and strength of character. 3fiftysix represents a world-class performance at a point in time. It is merely a strong platform from which to improve. Nothing more, nothing less. The hyphen represents a baton, passed from one team member to another facilitating greater team results. It also indicates that the 'media' solution is raised 'above the bar.'

In 2013 Chris O'Hare became British Champion, broke the indoor Scottish & NCAA records for the mile and 1500m, ran 3:35 for 1500m and reached the final of the 1500m at the 14th IAAF World Championships in Moscow, Russia, In this same period 3fiftysix media has gone from strength to strength, delivering very significant 'return on marketing investment' to its clients through our determined and friendly application of our principles.
