Let’s Make Apps that Amaze, Delight and Solve.


Eight Bit Studios exists to amaze, delight and solve problems through our raucous combination of design and technology.

10 iPhones ago, we started Eight Bit Studios to work with other passionate makers — helping define their mission, build their brand, and create software to achieve success. We live at the intersection of technology and human touch, orchestrating experiences that deliver the kind of value businesses are founded on. Based in Chicago, our interdisciplinary team of designers, engineers, and leaders bring enthusiasm and expertise to solving problems and helping entrepreneurs and organizations navigate the modern mobile age.

“There are literally millions of families each year taking on medical debt. Meanwhile, there are 30 or more friends surrounding that family asking what they can do to help. They send flowers and bake casseroles, which – while appreciated – do not really help with the bigger issue weighing on the family — the mounting bills in their mailboxes.”

Desiree Vargas Wrigley

Founder of GiveForward
