We do our best work in flannel

Who we are

Not all agencies are headquartered in impressive skyscrapers  -  some are found deep in the woods, where gorgeous nature inspires and reinvigorates. Some ideas are formed across a conference table and yet others over the glow of a campfire.

Our small but mighty team believes that these deep roots in nature and reality - in the way that people live their lives are the key to big, powerful ideas that resonate with consumers. We believe marketing shouldn't be a mystery - it should be authentic and fun...and these are the values we live every day at North of Eight Design & Marketing.

When you choose to work with us, to entrust us with your brand and your communications strategy, we don't take that lightly. Our team has decades of experience working with and building brands in ways that are realistic, authentic and impactful. Your goals become our goals, our team is your team.


Real people. Really good work

[Mostly] Wisconsinites, our team is brought together by technology and a love for marketing.

If you're looking for the kind of agency partners whose suits cost more than a mortgage payment - we're not your people. But if you're looking for an authentic, down-to-earth crew who puts the success of your project above all else. reach out.
