BE DISRUPTIVE disruptive

A disruptive technology or innovation is one that helps create a new market or value network, and eventually goes on to disrupt the existing marketplace—displacing earlier technology, businesses and processes. The term is used in business to describe innovations that improve a product or service in ways that the market does not expect. We are 3five. We are disruptive and we help our clients as well as partner agencies disrupt their markets by building best-of-breed websites and mobile apps.

LEAN ON US

Being disruptive doesn't have to be risky. We're creative yet calculated and above all, we're focused on your business objectives. Our team of battle-tested designers and developers bring confidence to complex projects involving new open-source technology as well as legacy business systems. Executing on time and on budget while maintaining brand standards is our "joie de vivre".

QUARTERLY REVIEW

LEADERSHIP

Talent is our unique value proposition. We're not a big agency but offer the same capability as big agencies, only with fewer layers of separation between you and the people doing the work.

David Ogilvy, Founder of one of the largest and most successful agencies wrote the following advice to clients seeking an agency in his book Confessions of an Advertising Man.

"If you are lucky enough to find young people with that special energy and daring which leads them into business for themselves, you will benefit from that valuable quality serving you.

It is easy to be beguiled by acres of desks, departments, and other big agency appurtenances. What counts is the real motive power of the agency, the creative potency."

Martin
L T

MARTIN PARTNER/ACCOUNT MANAGER

Formally trained in graphic design at UMD, Martin does a lot of his work behind the scenes. He rejects the idea that web standards and great design are incompatible and spends much of his time doing quality control in addition to account and project management.

Martin enjoys making complex things simple, home brewing, spending time with his family and scuba diving in Lake Superior.

Jake
L

JAKE PARTNER/ACCOUNT MANAGER

With a background in Web Design and Search Marketing, Jake is a master of project management. He makes sure that the team stays on time and on track. Have an idea? Jake can polish it and see that idea through design, development, testing & delivery.

Jake enjoys brevity, candor, white space, tasteful jokes about "social media experts", surfing and Costa Rican beer.

Jayme

JAYME LEAD DESIGNER

Jayme, a native Duluthian, fled the coop early on to develop her skills in San Diego, California. There she worked as a web designer and videographer and discovered that having a broad range of capabilities keeps her motivated in her work and interested in different ways of approaching design. When she's not designing she loves to read (huge nerd) and play old-timey bluegrass her mandolin.

Vincent

VINCENT LEAD WORDPRESS

Vinny is an extremely talented all-around developer and gadget geek with nearly 15 years experience and a specialization in WordPress. He hails from the east coast (What's about it?!).

When not heading up 3five's WordPress Brigade, Vinny enjoys posting tweets from his smartphone, making his east coast accent sound worse than it really is, being a drummer in various bands and tinkering on his Macintosh laptop computer device.

Bill

BILL LEAD SHOPIFY

Billy The Kid spent his early days in a high-volume web design/development shop slinging dozens of sites each week. He applies that sense of urgency to every Shopify project but now enjoys taking his time to be creative and thorough.

When Bill isn't developing boundary-pushing Shopify sites he enjoys being the reigning champion of frisbee golf (really), dominating the rest of the staff on the company foosball table and losing himself in code until 4am.

Gina

GINA LEAD BUSINESS CATALYST

If it's broken Gina can fix it. Once your site is up Gina makes sure that it stays that way by providing constant updates and maintenance.

She enjoys laughing in the face of danger, big headphones, cooking, being thrifty and cardigans.

Pete

PETE FOUNDING PARTNER & COUCH POTATO

Our very own shop dog is always here to lend a hand. If you need a power cord pulled, a keyboard licked, or just a quick cuddle, Pete's your man.
