In 2008, Ross Crooks, Jason Lankow and Josh Ritchie founded Column Five in a now-defunct coffee shop in Costa Mesa, California. Today, our two-office team consists of about 50 intelligent, diverse and creative individuals who come together each day to produce beautiful and results-driven creative work.
From the jungles of the Congo to the mean streets of Philly, they are sailors, philosophers, karaoke masters, professional gamers, nomads, DJs, authors, yogis, culinary fanatics, sneakerheads, former anthropologists and future astronauts.
