Backtrack to mid 2009, Five Creative was dreamt up in a hammock in the hinterlands of Tuscany. It was to be the formation of a partnership between two good friends, dedicated to the pursuit of providing a bespoke creative service for businesses of any size and requirement.
The formal partnership between Charlie Ryan and James Baker kicked-off in October 2009, establishing their first studio above the historic Station Hotel on Greville Street, Prahran. From here they refined their business strategy, offering and service. And formed new and exciting partnerships with a number of clients with whom they still collaborate with to this day.
As of mid 2019, Five Creative has a growing team, working across two studio bases between Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula. And James and Charlie are still great friends, dedicated to their pursuit of service, friendship and family.
