5 Elements Creative

From concept development and ideation, to prototyping, engineering, and production,

5E has a wide range of core competencies.

Our Story

Headquartered in Long Beach, CA, 5 Elements Entertainment exists to help fuel the ever-changing convergence of technology and media. With experience in video games, music, TV, and consumer products, 5E excels at creating new cross-functional dynamics for brands and intellectual property owners. From concept development and ideation, to prototyping, engineering, and production, 5E has a wide range of core competencies. The 5E business philosophy is based on the fundamental interaction between the five elements: Wood (feeding), Fire (creating), Air (bearing), Metal (enriching), and Water (nourishing).

While 5 Elements was creating its own entertainment properties, we also saw opportunities to help other businesses realize their app development needs. Our unique view into the entertainment landscape allowed us to step into the work of servicing our client’s software needs. After working with companies like Fox Sports, EA Games, and Mattel we saw an opportunity to service our client’s web development needs as well as app development. For our clients, having 5e come in to create plans to focus the digital product branding and features allowed us to both differentiate their mobile and web experiences in a way that feels supportive of each platform as a part of the whole branded experience.
