Take a glimpse
inside the barn doors
It’s easy to talk about culture, but we’re finding it takes more than a suggestion box and a book club to actually back it up. We believe no matter how clear the external message, internal culture is the true measure of clarity. So we put this to practice ourselves, intentionally shaping everything we do inside and outside our whiteboard walls.
Each year, we line up culture initiatives that support and correspond with each of our core values. For instance, for “always learn” we host a monthly team lunch called Appetite for Aptitude. During this time, we bring in an expert on a topic or ask one of our team members to teach something they are passionate about to the rest of the team. Topics have included trademark law, podcasting and human centered design.
We “work hard, laugh loud and value the experience” by taking time away from the office to have Exceptional Experiences together (such as white water rafting and road trips to see our clients). We even took our entire team to a boxing class. It certainly took “play hard” to a new level, but we ended with cupcakes to support a less public core value - “Work hard. Celebrate with food.”
And it has paid off - in 2017 we were named one of Nashville’s Best Places to Work.

Why we're here
Because we get that marketing can be extremely complicated. We get that resources are limited. That technology is constantly shifting and changing. That driving key conversions can literally make or break your opportunity to have impact and create change. We get the challenges you are facing and the hurdles in your way. We get what’s at stake.
We get you.
Like you, we believe in community, collaboration and harnessing the power of creativity to make change happen—in our hearts, homes, city, nation and world. We believe in hope, beauty, hard work and big ideas. We believe when you’re doing work that truly matters, you have a story that matters, and we take the job of telling that story very seriously.
So we lead with strategy first. We immerse ourselves in your business. We partner as a true extension of your organization and brand. We separate what we could do from what we should and must do to not only sustain, but to rise above and break through the clutter.
And we live each day with gratitude because we truly believe we have the best job in the world.

“5by5 launched our Pro Football Hall of Fame Academy with a world-class website and digital support. They took a collection of business assets and made our brand look great to our target audience and our potential customers. Although our innovative ideas and service make us great, we look for partners who know how to make us look even better. 5by5 nailed that. They also did so at a reasonable cost and at warp speed.”
