Why 256ideas?

A short story. When we created the company we wanted to symbolize “thinking out of the box”, “think big”, and “be creative” and we also wanted to be identified through words that were easy to communicate, neutral, were international and crossed country borders. This is how we knew that we liked "ideas", which was also our philosophy and how we wanted to work with our clients. Later on we decided to add a prefix which would make the name original and distinctive. We then thought of the number 256, which honored the beloved byte (2 to the 8th power) and the digital system. We joined 256 with ideas and got our name, 256ideas !!!
