Our Team Family

Thanks for taking the time to visit us. We are a husband & wife duo that loves all things creative. Here’s our story:

After graduating from Parsons School of Design in New York City, Jeff started Dotted8 as his freelance company. In his early years he did contracting & consulting with clients such as UBM, Dell EMC, IBM, Microsoft, Solarwinds, and Digital Turbine. Dana, our Director of Operations, is a talented designer and overall creative spirit with a degree in Interior Design.

In March of 2018, Dana joined forces with Jeff to scale Dotted8 beyond a freelancer’s hustle to a full service agency. We now have designers and creatives across the US, as well a technical lead and development team overseas.

We love what we do and we love helping businesses of all sizes the way so many others have helped us.

We have two wild boys, Nathan and Noah, as well as our CTOs (Chief Tasting Officers) / doggies, Sparrow and Autumn.

When we’re not designing, we’re probably at a thrift store, or antique mall looking for used furniture to bring home

Dotted8 is a musical terminology relating to rhythm. A dotted eighth note played just a single time may sound random or off-time. If you play it continually it starts to make a beautiful rhythm and it begins to sound intentional.

We use this philosophy in our work. We repeat design decisions and create patterns to show intentionality and beauty.

We service clients all over the US and Canada.

We founded Dotted8 in Austin, TX, and we currently live in Charlotte, NC. Our creatives are spread across the US and Canada.

The first thing to do is schedule a discovery call. After getting key details about your project we will send you a proposal with a quote for you to review.

We specialize in custom creative work. We spend a lot of time and resources to deliver world-class results. For this reason we don’t take on many clients at once. We are focused on quality over quantity.
