Our Vision.

​We believe that when good intentions become meaningful actions,

inspiring stories are born.

We believe in a world where people are free to express themselves; live a free and dignified life; share unique cultures, customs, and languages; travel open borders, and maintain their individual identity while contributing to the greater good.


We realize our vision by helping organizations communicate what they are doing to make the world a better place. We create experiences that excite all five senses. We share stories of hope, of those overcoming adversity, and triumphs of the human spirit.

Why "Studio 5x5"?

Historically, mission-critical operations relied on radio communications to deliver orders loud and clear.  A rating of 1 to 5 was used in reporting back signal STRENGTH and CLARITY. To be heard 5 by 5 meant that the message was being heard LOUD and CLEAR.


With our founder's interest and experience in aviation and commercial radio, the historical parlance naturally conveyed the essence of our purpose.


Studio 5x5 delivers your positive message with strength and clarity and your audience reads you loud and clear.
