About the Company

Sector 5 Digital (S5D) helps companies transform their brands and energize their marketing efforts by creating amazing digital content for advertising, marketing, and entertainment.

S5D employs a “build once deploy often” strategy allowing our clients to leverage their digital assets across multiple sales and marketing channels to maximize ROI, such as:

  • Virtual & augmented reality experiences
  • New vehicle design and production support
  • Film and video production
  • Photo-realistic 3D animation
  • TV commercials
  • Brand Activations
  • On-line and mobile applicationsConferences and trade shows

Our clients are people who buck the status quo and want to do things differently. They have a strong desire to transform their companies and stand out in the crowd.

S5D blurs the edges between solving real business challenges, brand strategy, brilliant thinking, and leading-edge production. Many companies have “silos” of expertise but don’t have the experience to pull it all together.

We are not an agency in the traditional sense – in fact, we partner with a number of them because many agencies do not have our unique capabilities in-house.
