Fifth Column is a multidisciplinary design studio based in Singapore. We seek to achieve a balance between conceptual rigour and functionality across the fields of identity, editorial, packaging and interactive design.

Our work has been recognised by the Type Directors Club in New York and has been featured in publications including The Brand Guide: Singapore Edition.

The studio is currently not accepting new commissions, and is now largely a vehicle for self-initiated and community work.

The studio was founded by Pharaon Siraj in 2013. He was previously an adjunct lecturer at LASALLE College of the Arts and Singapore Polytechnic. He holds an engineering degree from the Georgia Institute of Technology and a Post-Baccalaureate from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
