Smart Work

Smort Werk

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; we see it as a challenge.

Cool Clients

Kewl Klientz

You can't do smart work without cool clients. We've tried. To make this relationship work, it takes trust. If we trust each other, we can build something truly extraordinary.

Real People

Réal Peeps

We believe that when you have fun you do good work, and when you do good work you have fun. We actually founded our company on that principle. We weren't sure at the time if that would work, but so far it's working well.


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.
