Octave is built around the hypothesis that we could create a highly effective agency – that we could deliver work that is demonstrably better – by removing as many barriers as possible between us and our clients.

Over time, we have learned what can and cannot be removed from this equation and, more importantly, we’ve found what was missing when we were working at other agencies. Our combined skill sets make us a well-rounded group of problem solvers but it’s the self awareness of our own strengths and weaknesses that make us an effective team.
