Half-Past Eight Studios

Hello, it’s 1/2 Past Eight.

Time to make something.

1/2 Past Eight ? Huh?

What’s the significance of 8:30?

Well, that’s when it’s time to learn something new!

Actually, not really. Half-Past Eight is a tongue-in-cheek reference to my eight and a half remaining fingers after a woodworking accident I had on October 25, 2011.

I mean really – that’s funny, right? The name. Not the fingers. Losing fingers isn’t very funny at all. Don’t do it. The extra attention isn’t really worth it.

Graphic Work

Logos and Letterhead and… well, shoot. I can’t think of another L word to describe the kind of graphic design help we can offer you at Half-Past Eight Studios!
