Lead UI Designer
Seven years with five by Five and over 250+ custom designed websites has taught Sam a few things about user experience, interface design, website frameworks and design review processes. Sam heads up design at 5×5. A passionate guy who cares deeply about the work he does. The perfect mix of creativity, communication and leadership equips Sam with the tools to deliver one of a kind products.
When Sam’s not whipping up designs in Sketch App or syncing them to Invision you can find him grappling at the gym or traveling in Japan.
Carla is our Five By Five project manager. While small, she packs a BIG punch. It is rumoured she once designed, coded and launched a new website in under two hours, all while sipping on a cappuccino casually scrolling through Instagram. True story. When Carla isn’t thinking about our clients (very rarely) or wrangling WordPress, you can find her at the beach taking photos of and patting (other peoples) dogs.
