Why Five by Five?
Natalie Stickles of Five By Five design has been under contract with Ripley’s for seven years now. Her companies services have been a breath of fresh air for our needs. We have been in business in Niagara Falls for over 50 years and have had many designers and marketing companies.
Five by Five started with only one piece of our marketing plan and now oversees all of our out of home marketing, social media and headed two major marketing campaigns in Toronto. One involved partnering with the TTC and the other the Niagara Falls Go Train.
Her work is always on time and on budget. The services we receive and quality are like big company products at a home town price. It’s the best personal service I have received in years. Since the invention of computers and WiFi, most companies have done away with the personal service and salespeople. Five by Five is committed to make you feel very comfortable, happy and stress free during the delivering of any service.
It is such a relief to still find a company that cares about their product and strive extra hard to get the product correct and the client satisfied with proven results.
I would recommend Five By Five design to any company looking to market their product and its owner, Natalie Stickles.

I have known and worked with Natalie 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 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.

Natalie 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. Currently she is working 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 (5×5 Design). This year Natalie completed the rebranding of Upper Canada Cheese and we have been receiving 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 have increased exponentially after our new 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 and 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!”
