Why the name District 8 Media?
District 8 is the fictional space where our company operates.
According to numerology, the number eight balances the material and immaterial worlds. At its best, it is as spiritual as it is materialistic.
The spiritual side of the number is practical, realistic, and intelligent. It knows the difference between make-believe and genuine spiritual realizations.
On the material plane, it is focused on results, often in the form of money, yet it is not greedy; it sees money as a tool, not an end result. Instead, it is generous and willing to take risks.
And if you rotate it 90˚, it transforms into the infinity symbol.
