Every project that I've worked on with Column Five over the past few years has been an absolute home run. When it comes to concept, creative, design and promotion, these guys are world class and one of the best agencies I have worked with.

Column Five has an artistry and whimsy that turn numerals into stories. Not surprisingly, many of the elements people most love about DonorsChoose.org were crafted by the team at Column Five. I love working with these guys; they are always so much fun.
Charles Best, CEO/Founder, Donors Choose
I can easily say that Column Five is a highly original and phenomenally creative firm to work with, and I enthusiastically recommend them to work with on any project based on those merits alone. Column Five also demonstrated to us that no matter the size or nature of the project, they treat their clients as collaborative and creative partners who deserve their full attention on every piece of work. You feel that they genuinely want to hit it out of the ballpark for you because they are invested in your success, not theirs.
Rachelle Galloway-Popotas, Communications & Media Manager Haas Institute; University of California, Berkeley
Column Five is a collection of some of the smartest, most talented people that I’ve ever worked with. They have a unique superpower for taking your ideas and making them 50x better. Don’t have any ideas? Don’t worry. They do and they’re better than yours anyway.
Keith Messick, CMO, Lucidworks
What separates Column Five from the rest is their ability to strip down a problem to the studs, fix it or come up with something better. And, they speak human. They fundamentally understand how we communicate, so much so that they can find the connective tissue of a story where few others can.
Bryan Saftler, Sr Manager, XBox
Column Five helped us bring our motion graphic concept to life. They took the time to educate us about the process and were very effective in helping us distill a complicated topic into a video that was both informative and entertaining.

Brands are in a unique position to tell the world’s best stories
Everyone wants to be remembered. To make an impression. We want to connect with each other in lasting and impactful ways. For brands, these goals are equally as important but increasingly difficult to achieve.
The best stories are impossible to forget. They stick with us and shape who we are. Memorable brands are a product of carefully crafted stories, and their customers are eager to hear what they have to say.
Stories are what great brands do best—they seek out and meet people in places where casual and authentic connection can happen. They talk to them like actual people and listen enthusiastically when they respond.
Your content is telling a story about your brand. Make sure it’s the right one.
Best story wins.
