Delivering Measurable Results Through Digital Marketing and Technical Engineering
We have your back, ensuring you stay sophisticated, produce great work, and have more time in your workday.
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.
We take what we do very seriously while ensuring work with clients is fun and rewarding. Our goal is to provide a high level of sophistication, uplifting our clients to do their absolute best while attaining measurable results.
Most important to us:
- Always doing what's right
- Improving our own lives as well as those of our clients
- Constant learning
- Travel and other cultures
- Good food
- Strong communication
To create the best agency environment for skilled people from all over the world. Because only the best, long-retained, happy people can provide the best service and results to our clients.

Open Source Contributions
Open source software makes nonprofits, advocacy groups, and other organizations able to do more with less financial resources. It also makes the web more efficient and secure.
