How do you build the best?

We love Houston and want to help the best organizations build the best version of themselves. And you can't do your best work without the best clients. We've tried. To make this relationship work, it takes trust. If we trust each other, we can build something truly extraordinary.

We created 5+8 because we believed we could do it better. We make beautiful things and tell true and compelling stories. We want to be the best agency in the world. We don't see that as unrealistic but as a challenge.
And you need the best people to do it. We believe that when you have fun, you do good work, and when you do good work, you have fun. We founded our company on that principle. We weren't sure at the time if that would work, but it's working well so far.


We are visual communicators and word writers. We do (just about) anything visual. We love to make beautiful and smart work—from a social media campaign to a hand-illustrated poster or a 100-page website with all the bells and whistles. If it needs to tell a story, we’re the ones who can do it.
