If you do not ask the right questions, you do not get the right answers.  – Edward Hodnett

whynameusWhy are we called whynameus?  Because our back-story taught us what matters most.

One of our founding partners taught inner city teens how to use computer technology as a creative outlet. The class was tasked with putting together a documentary about their life experiences and how they relate to stereotypes. When the project was completed,  the class had to name the production. After several dubious names were discarded, one slightly vexed student asked:

“Why do we always have to put names on stuff? Why can’t it just be what it is….why do they have to name us?”

And that’s how  “whynameus” became our brand. It is based on the premise that results should speak for themselves. Fast forward several years and the name still makes sense.  We are here to make our clients successful—not to get caught up in our own grandeur. At whynameus, it’s all about you!
