Why Five by Five?

I have worked with Natalie for over 25 years. I appreciate her flexibility when needs and deadlines change. I admire her ability to find the right creative solution for every circumstance. I am thankful for her patience when I don’t always understand the technology. Most importantly, her skills and experience see the bigger picture, the long-term solution–helping to make our organization successful.

We have been in business in Niagara Falls for over 50 years and have hired many designers and marketing companies. Five By Five Design Studio has been under contract with Ripley’s for the past seven years. Natalie Stickles has been a breath of fresh air for our design and marketing needs.

Natalie started with only one piece of our marketing plan and now oversees all of our marketing, social media and spearheaded two major marketing campaigns in Toronto. One involved partnering with the TTC and the other launching the Niagara Falls Go Train service for tourism.

The designs that we receive are high quality like a Toronto agency at an affordable rate. Since the invention of email, most companies have done away with personal service. Natalie is committed to ensuring that you feel comfortable, happy and stress free during the process of a design project. She is always on time and on budget.

It is such a relief to still find a company that cares so deeply about their product and strives extra hard to ensure that the client is satisfied with proven results. I would recommend Five By Five Design Studio to any company looking to market their product.

I have known and worked with Natalie Stickles for over 15 years in my professional capacity with the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority. During this time I have developed a great respect for her creative skills and the ability to take an idea and turn it into a successful creative masterpiece. Reflecting back to our very first project, I can wholeheartedly say that Natalie is one of the most gifted Graphic Designers that I have worked with throughout my career. Her work has garnered praise from many professional colleagues and other organizations. Most important, she is dependable, efficient and unfailingly punctual. I have had to call on her for last minute projects and she has often given up her personal time to ensure its timely completion. She has a real knack for utilizing all available resources to ensure that professional standards and expectations are adhered to. Natalie’s passion and enthusiasm of her profession, coupled with her respect for every client she works for, no matter how big or small the project is unparalleled. I am truly honoured and proud to work with Natalie.

Former Manager of Marketing & Community Relations, NPCA

Natalie Stickles of Five by Five Design Studio was introduced to us through the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority and we were grateful to make the connection. Her expertise in graphic design coupled with her knowledge of the environment made her the perfect fit to work with our team on signage, exhibits and educational resources.  She  worked with us on the graphics package for our new demonstration wetland and rain garden. Natalie instinctively understands the complexities of our programming, works well with the team and adapts well to change – all very important in our dynamic environment!

Our accessible natural environment is UNIQUE and our passion to reach all ages and abilities in order to engage them in an active outdoor lifestyle is evident in all that we do. Natalie’s passion for creatively and effectively communicating that message to the community at large is a gift to Heartland Forest and an important part of our success.

Upper Canada Cheese is proud to be associated with Natalie Stickles from Five by Five Design Studio. Natalie completed the rebranding of Upper Canada Cheese and we received rave reviews for our van wrap, new labels and the website ever since. It has helped us gain larger distribution in grocery chains like Loblaws and Costco across Canada. Our sales increased exponentially after our new colourful look was introduced to the public.

Natalie is an extremely gifted graphic artist and her interpretation (hand illustrations) of our image was spot on. Throughout the process Natalie was a pleasure to work with. Always professional, calm and enthusiastic, she made the entire project enjoyable as well as a huge success.

Natalie is always willing to go the extra mile for her clients and I always look forward to our meetings with her happy smile.

You did a great job. Your creativity and hard work really boosted our image and profile a few notches. We received the Top 100 Festivals of Ontario award 3 years in a row with her creative guidance.

Natalie takes great pride in her attention to detail and has a wonderfully creative mind. She is able to look outside the box and provide ideas that we were unable to think of for Miller Restoration. As the President of our local charity, Pelham Cares, I then reached out to her to design for the various events that we host locally for a fun unique look.

It was a pleasure to work with Natalie from start to finish. I approached about developing a logo for my new business. I was very concerned that my logo should represent the ‘personality’ of my business and appeal to my target clients. Natalie listened carefully and asked questions until she was confident she understood what I was looking for in an image. When Natalie returned with her preliminary samples, I instantly knew I had found my logo. I felt like my new business had been given a heartbeat! Natalie nailed down all the features I was looking for, and incorporated features I didn’t know I wanted until I saw them. Natalie was easy to work with, communicated well and met every deadline – no hassles. She was very professional and thorough. I then went on to ask Natalie to design my building signage, business cards and stationary. The final products were fantastic. I have people compliment me on our logo and signage almost daily! Home-run, Natalie! Thank you so much!
