EightySeven is a modern, independent brand design agency.
We design things and solutions for our partners that delight their customers and serves their business needs. We are a creative agency that transforms businesses into brands, and customers into fanatics through the power of creativity, strategy, storytelling and the magic of espresso.
EightySeven is run as a virtual agency to attract the best possible talent to build a custom team around your project needs. Each project is spearheaded by Brand Designer and founder, Maxwell Billings.
We are brand designers.
We believe the foundation of any effective business communication is the brand. Not your logo, not your trucks, not your product. Brand. It’s the gut feeling that consumers have when they hear your company name. Our process starts with listening and empathy. Listening to understand your business goals and where problems are and to better understand your customers and their needs.
By having a strategic and clearly defined brand, business decisions become easier, guesswork is removed, communication becomes more effective and your marketing dollars will work harder.
EightySeven is run as a virtual agency. That means you’ll always have the same point of contact for your business, we’re partners after all. While at the same time, we source the best talent from around the world to build a custom team based on your needs.
