The Agency

Google “Jacksonville Advertising Agency.” 5ivecanons should be number one. Our award-winning work not only looks fantastic – it drives results.

The agency is called “five canons,” to serve as a reminder that our process is more important than our surnames. But it’s spelled “5ivecanons,” because of a clutch win at the end of a heated rock-paper-scissors battle. Both historical events led us to where we are today.

The graphic below depicts our five canons process. The video to the right highlights our work. Scroll down through the rest this page and learn more about our culture, the staff, and our digital footprint. Please scroll irresponsibly.

Brandon Clark

Director of Client Relations

Brandon came to us after 11 years in the large-format printing industry. His philosophy that creating long-term relationships are more important than short-term profits made him a perfect fit to head up our Client Development division. Brandon is a family man with two young daughters, an avid sports fan and soccer enthusiast, and a wannabe MMA fighter. He says you can always find him roaming the mean streets of Nocatee when he’s not changing diapers.

Ashley Smith

Art Director | Photographer

Ashley is one of those sneaky nerds. She has tattoos, is artsy and loves menswear. Aside from that, she’s a Rugby playing, bike riding, puppy walking, book reading photographer/designer that loves the way veggie bacon tastes even though she’s not a vegetarian. When she’s not designing, she’s probably browsing around for other kick ass projects to be inspired by. Or, she’s playing Skyrim.

Alex Smith

Front-end Designer and Developer

Alex joined 5ivecanons with 7 years of experience in web design, coding, and development. As an avid Magic card player, he approaches all of our development needs with an initial Haste boost, and then swiftly defeats them with Deathtouch. And if you don‘t know what that means, then... don’t worry about it. Basically, he’s a web guru.
