The ladies of North of Eight Design & Marketing


Emily Gall

Overlord (but the nice kind)

Thanks for checking out North of Eight Design & Marketing...a brainchild of mine developed after a year of successfully freelancing in the northwoods of Wisconsin. I believe that marketing and advertising should be FUN and FRUITFUL, and I love love love getting to know all of the incredible business owners that I've had the pleasure of working with.

We aren't your typical marketing agency. I believe in fostering conversations that will get to the heart of how we can work together to grow your business.

I spent most of my twenties working in various communications roles for nonprofits in northwest Wisconsin. As a marketing department of one, I came to understand the need to maximize budgets and measure your return on investment.

I live in Spooner, WI with my husband, super neat kiddo and two small pups. I ❤️ coffee (who doesn't, amiright???), good conversation, and all things Wisconsin.

Kassie Mullins

Chief Content Creator

Kassie is new to the north and to the cold! Being born and raised in a small town south of Fort Worth, Texas; she recently made the decision to move to Wisconsin to close the gap between her and her long distance relationship with cheese (and her boyfriend). With both a bachelors and masters degree in Agricultural Media and Communications, she is extremely qualified when talking about cows...(seriously 🐄).

As N8s resident content expert, she specializes in photography, videography and social media management. She also works with clients on web design, blogging and more. She's gained years of experience working as a traveling photographer and blogger in the Texas livestock industry, and was also the marketing manager for a large RV dealership back in good ol' TX.

Kassie enjoys all things Wisconsin! Hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, hiking, going for runs and bike rides on the name it. She loves live Texas Country music and reading a good book while wearing fuzzy socks next to the fire (picture it). She'll also talk your ear off when it comes to cattle and farming.

Born and raised North of 8, Sarah returned back to the Midwest in 2020 after a long vacation in Wyoming - earning a few degrees along the way. With a knack for advertising concepts and campaigns, Sarah’s passion is helping clients with their marketing direction.

Sarah also happens to enjoy the crap out of sales in just about every capacity. Particularly, the satisfaction that comes from meeting new people, learning their stories and ultimately helping them achieve something through creative marketing and advertising.
