It all started in 1979 when our founder, Mike Lawton, started an advertising agency. His small studio opened above a dry cleaning shop in Southampton.

Mike installed the customer-first values that still define us today. It’s one reason why we’ve retained several clients for over a decade. Our success is also down to our ability to adapt and innovate. We completed our first ‘interactive’ project in 1996. Our client? IBM.

When Mike retired in 2006 his two sons, Matt and Nick, took the business on as part of Lawton Communications Group.

These days Five by Five remains independent and has evolved into a global marketing communications agency. We have over 100 staff around the world.
