5e is a nimble communications, marketing and branding firm that blends what you do, what your audience thinks and what we know into ideas and experiences that make a difference.

Our approach to your needs

We’ve engaged with dozens of mission-driven organizations and companies, and we understand how communications and advocacy work together. We’re curious and creative generalists, who know at least a little about a lot. We keep the firm lean and tailor the team to each client’s needs, resources and budget.


When you engage 5e, we’ll explore with you how to explain to influential audiences what you’re about, what they should understand, where you’re headed and why they should be with you. We’ll employ the talents and experience of our network as well as time-tested and evolving communications and marketing tools to extend the reach of your story. Along the way, we’ll evaluate the difference we’ve made together.
