What do we design? Solutions.
Established in 2007, 5 after 9 is a consulting partnership between a musician and an artist who both like math. The partners, Doug Reitz and Arlene Hedgecock each bring over 25 years of experience in applied design thinking, process analysis, project management and development of analog & digital properties.

We are B2B specialists and ad hoc C-suite consultants who still roll up our sleeves for front-end brainstorming and back-end design. Whether you need help with data asset management, team development, or demystifying emerging technology, 5 after 9 is the experienced partner you hire for special projects. Let us do some of the heavy lifting so you can stay on task in your specialty.

Let 5 after 9 listen, imagine, research, develop, and deliver solutions for you.


5 after 9 is moving our virtual and physical office first quarter 2021. We will be accepting new projects in Spring 2021.

Have a safe winter season, stay warm and stay sharp.
