• Whats in a Name - Contest

    Garret Phenix - 06/26/2013


    Naming your business can be tricky. There are many different approaches, do you use your own name, something personal (pet name / favourite animal / colour etc), quirky, relevant or unique to stand out and be remembered. Theres lots of options, and often they are a mix of several of these approaches. But one thing is common between all business names, a good name with good design / branding to support it, will help you stand out.

    At Oneaftereight Design Studio, we are no different. We wanted a name that was unique and would stand out, personal and somewhat quirky. We settled on Oneaftereight, a name that caught peoples attention and piqued their interest, but had them guessing at what it stood for, and we have fostered that curiosity ;) When asked what it stood for, we simply gave them a smile, said company secret and asked "what do you think it stands for / means".

    We have had many people guess over the years, some close, some extreamly creative and elaborate and all very entertaining. So with that we have decided to throw a contest for you to guess what Oneaftereight stands for. Lets us know what you think its stands for and you could win up to $130 in Oneaftereight discount coupons towards a future projects with us.
