89n is the home of a bunch of quirky, intelligent and inspiring folk that like to make great things.
We are based in Sydney, Australia but have world-wide appeal. By taking unique approaches to solving real-world problems we create LIFE out of binary.
Our apps range from tools for Twitter account management to real-time online content proof-checking for editors, an ever-growing stream of email newsletters to a smart website tour system.
Soon we will have even more and we are always looking to make things better.
89n is co-founded by Kevin Garber - an Australian (ex-African) entrepreneur who likes yoga, tofu and shooting staff members with lasers (seriously), and James Peter - a man whose brain has most-likely been sent back from the future and augmented with super-smart technology.
8 represents infinity as well as good luck in some cultures. 9 is associated with the Chinese Dragon - a symbol of magic and power. N stands for network - which is at the core of the internet and the world wide web - our chosen industry.
The symbolism of infinite good luck and a little bit of magic and power across the network of everything we do fits closely with our brand profile and aims.
Is a visual play on 8 and 9 and n - can you see all three?
