The Origins of O8

Initially, we called ourselves "Origin Eight" as a play on words for "originate." Also, the number 8 could be flipped around like an infinity symbol.

We wanted to create infinitely original solutions for our clients.

Over time, our clients kept calling us "O8", which matched our logo, so we listened. Our name-as-a-logo is a slight nod to our state's beloved Prince and his love symbol
