Creative Direction

Our Creative Director Dave Spence is a Chartered Designer and Graphic Design graduate with over 25 years professional experience. He is equally adept at designing new identity from inception for start-ups as he is at rigidly maintaining brand guidelines, nurturing corporate ID for multinationals.

Other Agencies have ‘Account Directors’ as client liaison representatives who then relay a brief to their designer; at Fifth Level clients liaise directly with Dave, the creative source ensuring the clients’ ideas and wishes are clearly understood first-hand from the outset.

Dave is a member of The Chartered Society of Designers (MCSD) – the world’s largest body of professional designers. In 2004 he established the North West Focal Group bringing together CSD members for monthly meetings in Manchester. He was elected to Council as the North West Chairman for 3 years representing members in quarterly quorum meetings with fellow Trustees at the London Headquarters. He became a Council elected Trustee in 2008 representing the discipline of Graphic Design and was proposed Vice President Elect in 2010. Over the past decade he has organised lectures, events and meetings in Manchester for members and the design community. Dave is proud to develop and promote high standards of graphic design and follow the CSD’s Code of Professional Conduct.
