With Carol at the helm..the creative process was amazing and almost seamless. Y5 listened to my needs and concerns, and put together a creative, beautiful brand. Her knowledge and skills are unsurpassed. More...

We have worked with Y5 for roughly 4 years on website, artwork and design, procurement and production. We can say without hesitation that the Y5 team is excellent from start to finish. They care and are invested in seeing their clients succeed. Any problems are worked through and rectified efficiently. Bottom Line: this is an exception team to work with! More...

Y5 with Carol and her team have just created this new brand for the launch of our neurocoaching platform for high-performance franchise systems. They also created our email signatures and have built our new website. This experience has been beyond what we could have hoped for.

The process was easy but not simple. The liaison with Carol and her team immediate, focused and consistent. The attention to our needs unfaltering. The process handled with patience and ease. The system for website development smooth and collaborative.

Anyone who has ever had to go through a branding experience for their start-up will know that this can be a very bumpy ride with drawn-out processes, sketchy communications and frustrations. We had everything in place in under 2 months and are thrilled with the brand and branding toolkit.

Therefore, we can not recommend Y5 more highly. If you need powerful, seamless brand creation and brand materials with ease, this is the company to do it. Check out the results www.powerpods.coach then give Carol a call. You'll be very glad you did!

Y5 Creative has been instrumental to the growth and success of our brand. All other premium Branding / Graphic Design companies that we have used prior to working with Y5 have truly paled in comparison.

Y5 has guided us through the opening of two new offices, expansion into international markets and increasing our staff by 500% over a five year span. Y5's Repositioning and restructuring of our brand during what should've been a stressful time in our growth has been effortless and has allowed us to focus our time on our clients instead.

Above all, we are treated like family and our time is valued. We can always rely on the fact that our needs are prioritized and efficiently addressed (which we try our best not to take advantage of lol).

This relationship has been a gift to our firm and we will always highly recommend Y5 to our clients.

Q&As

A great website should look on-brand, be clean, sophisticated, easy for you to update and responsive. It should be simple, visual, have well-written content and should seamlessly integrate with the necessary plugins to support all of your automated marketing needs. It must be scalable, SEO optimized and mobile-friendly.

A great website should have a job (as if it is an employee) and it should do that job well. This means that the UX/UI design should be well thought out and expertly implemented. It should be a tool that will make your life easier by being that important portal into your business.

Your website should showcase your brand and support its success.

With that all being said, your website has to engage your target audience, remember, you only have a few seconds to grab their attention and only one chance to make a first impression.

When we start a new project with a new client, it is very important for us to understand their vision. We are tasked with bringing their vision to life by creating a brand that reflects everything they need it to communicate. So, with that in mind, we have developed a discovery process that is really a lot of fun, and through that process, we do what we call a 'deep-dive'.

The first question on our list is "What business are you in?" It is actually a loaded question because if you give it some thought, it is way more than just the product or industry you represent.

Your WHY is the key to your brand. We will help you get to the root of what your brand is and once we have that nailed down, we are all on our way to developing a spectacular brand experience.

Our fun and engaging process is a combination of us asking challenging questions, listening to your input, understanding existing initiatives, researching the market, having a finger on industry trends as well as challenges, investigating your competition, and ultimately setting exciting and optimistic goals together.

We believe that Strategy + Communication + Teamwork + Great Design = SUCCESS.

Before arranging the discovery session, we like to meet on a zoom call to get a good feel of the scope of work from the client. It is also lovely to put a face to one another and know who we are potentially working with from both sides.

After we have spoken and have an outline of what the client is looking for, we will put together a proposal and send it off for approval or more discussion. Our goal is to provide our clients with exceptional design that will position them for success, so we are very flexible when it comes to our working arrangements.

I have always been a creative person, and I just love bringing peoples vision to life. My creative team is exceptional and we are all committed to making sure that the human element shines through in every brand we create. I derive great joy from seeing our clients succeed and watching their businesses grow.

Twenty-three years as the previous owner of a successful printing business serving the construction and design industries in Vancouver gives me a unique perspective on what it takes to build a robust and profitable brand. I have been the client and am uniquely positioned to support the growth and success of your brand with my expertise, and creative process.

Strategic brand discipline is more important now than ever before. That is where I feel that I can share my experience and together with my team we can help by designing and implementing the tools to keep your brand, website and organization strong, relevant and successful.

We are a team of real-life people who love to connect organizations with their audiences by bringing branding and strategy together to create unique and exciting experiences.

It's about the story behind the story!

Our unique discovery process uncovers the core values that define your services and gives us the insight to tell your story in a distinct and clear voice.

Based on core family values, the team at Y5 creates long-term relationships with each client. We are proud of our business and challenge ourselves every day to provide our client's with the most innovative and creative outside the box, thinking.

When you are doing what you love - the possibilities are endless.

Services

Branding always comes first. To market your business or product successfully, you need a powerful brand and brand strategy that speaks to your target audience.

We will work with you to develop and build your unique brand identity and story, including all sub-brands.

Your brand strategy is your road map to success. It is a well thought out plan that enables you to communicate your offering to your target audience. It also holds you and your team accountable and keeps you on track to reach your goals.

We will help you to define your brand strategy and guide you when you need help.

As we have already mentioned, it is all about the story. A successful brand will communicate with their target market in a way that they relate to on every level.

The tone, the voice, and the right language are essential to the success of your brand.

From your letterheads and business cards to brochures, both on and off-line, we are here to help.
