We Have Become Vikings (WHBV), is a creative shop based in Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine neighborhood. We move across all media channels in order to deliver design solutions and create culture through innovation and work. We combine ideation with design thinking to create unique amazement and wonder that exceed expectations. Our deliverables include design, print, illustration, digital, interactive, websites, Audio and Visual apps, VR/AR prototypes and various brand development and marketing assets. What makes WHBV so different in the creative community is not only our incredible body of work but also our expertise in both print and digital. We are huge fans of working with our neighbors and creating culture in our backyard. We love scale, and the ability to switch on a dime, no matter the design problem, we look forward to researching and developing a solution.

HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH THE NAME WE HAVE BECOME VIKINGS?
When Jason wanted to start his own creative shop, he wanted a name that set him apart from other creative shops. He looked toward the Vikings culture after learning the Vikings had invented the term "branding" while they branded their family crest into swords and ships - looking at our society, design is everywhere, from the coffee we drink to who we vote for, "We Have Become Vikings."
