Okay. I can feel it coming already. What I am referring to is my subscribers (and also my "slowly growing on me", group of trolls) desire to automatically comment on this post, simply based on the title. BUT, before you do, I ask you kindly to just read the entire post and then make your opinions be known, in black, white and read all over the internet. Sound fair? Okay, let's go! FACT:…See More

About Status 5 Studio, Inc.

We are a very diverse team. Bringing a unique spin and skill set to the equation, our team, though diverse shares a few common factors: We share an insane work ethic, we eat, sleep, and breathe marketing and branding, and we practice what we preach, developing our own brands in the Status 5 Studio Brand Incubator®.

Taking into consideration that every project is different, our process is to evaluate each project individually and then build a team around it. Dubbed by some as “The Hollywood” model, this work process allows us to hire what we need, when it is needed, and shrink what we don’t need, when it’s no longer necessary.

Our principals have years of experience in Design, Branding, Identity and end-to-end Marketing Solutions. We represent sole proprietors and multi-billion dollar corporations.
