Why Five by Five?

The term ‘five by five’ comes from analog radio to describe the quality of communication. A sender would ask a receiver to rate the radio signal. Two characteristics were used, signal strength and signal clarity; each rated on a scale of 1 to 5. ‘Five by Five’ then would be the highest signal strength and the best quality. Over the years, ‘five by five’ has come to mean “I understand you perfectly” in situations other than radio communication.

Graphic design is more than just ‘creative’. It is also ‘communication’.

Here at Five By Five, we listen! We listen to you, the client and take the time to understand your products and your needs. We strive to get your message out, strong and effective! We want everything between us, you and your clients to be ‘five by five.’
