The agency-client paradigm is broken. We know because we’ve lived both sides of the same story. We know what work is and that how it’s being done is changing.

This is precisely why we exist.

We’re here to correct the problems of today while we grow and prepare for tomorrow’s landscape. We don’t get amped up about industry jargon and buzzwords like, “brand influencers,” “CLV,” and “brutalist design.”

We don’t live in the clouds, talking about abstract concepts and whimsical ideas. We focus on the work at hand and develop executions that get you closer to YOUR goals.

We focus on the tangible, communicating clearly without verbosity. We don’t live for trends or worry about fitting a certain image. Our principles are timeless; we put YOU at the center stage.

We're global. We're inclusive.
We're transparent. We get stuff done.

We are Yellow Cat Five.

What's in a Name?

So you might be curious why we call ourselves Yellow Cat Five. The inspiration comes from the Cat5 cable that transmits broadband internet, which is synonymous with our connected global distributed workforce.

A black and white illustration of a globe with a phone cable wrapped around it, one side of the cable is open, exposing multi colored wires of red, blue and yellow. The other side of the cable appears to be plugging back into the earth.

If you peel off the outer layer of a Cat5 cable, you see a series of different colored wires tethered together to form its inner core just as our diverse team comes together to create a uniform, aligned unit.

The number five is representative of our founding team (Rita, Mariana, Eric, Nehmi, Joe). And quite frankly, cats rule the internet!
