Strategy and design for people looking to reimagine the future.

We help audacious, mission-driven people solve wicked societal problems.

Who We Are

DrawHistory is a strategy and design consultancy for people who are frustrated with the crises and injustices that surround them, and fiercely determined to fix them. They explore ways to work with others who can help them shape the future that they want to live in. We have worked with 150+ of these organisations.

This is why we exist. We’re here to add that layer of fearless insight and action that allows them to accelerate their progress. To make change happen. Faster.

There’s a handful of us. Brand, design, campaigns, content and social research are simply some of the ways we spark that inventive fire with those ready to change the world.

Our Experience

We believe only contrarian creativity can thrust the world forward to a new future. And some of our own contrarians, whether team or advisors, have been trusted to work on incredibly complex problems with progressive brands:

No Ordinary Insights

From grassroots movements to Google, Wikipedia and the United Nations, our team has traversed the world and back to bring a mix of strategic thinking and empathy to the problems we commit to solve.

Multifaceted Approach

We are multidisciplinary and solve problems by looking beyond one approach: from grounding strategies in deeper social research to launching PR campaigns that support the visibility of marketing efforts.

/ Our core values

We are here to design new futures — with all the fun and fire. Here are five things that spark invention at /dh.

Our People

Meet the /DH team jump-starting new ideas.

Empathy, creativity, fun, and impatient optimism: as a team of 11 across Australia, Canada and the United States, we bring our values alongside our design chops to build meaningful relationships with clients and each other.

We’re strategists, designers, communicators, engineers, and project managers who enjoy a good slice of cake, a competitive game of Heads Up, and the Aussie sunlight that pours in through our studio (and Zoom) windows.

Also part of the family: Experts with contrarian creativity.

These advisors are part of DrawHistory, but work in their own fields and practices. Collectively, they have worked with leading brands such as the Obama White House, FIFA, the Houston Holocaust Museum and many others.

Libby Williams Campaign Co-Manager, The Humanitarian Group

“The empathy DrawHistory consistently displayed drove our campaign forward. Your thoughtful contributions allowed us to trust that you would represent our vision appropriately.”
