Our Name

VIEO (pronounced "VEE-oh") is a Latin word meaning “to weave together.”

Our co-founders Rob Spurlock and Paul Gibson came up with our unique name before VIEO even had a website, inspired by the way they were weaving together the artistic and technical elements of web design and marketing

Little did they know that years down the road, they would be getting search traffic for "vieo XXX" and other, shall we say, unrelated search terms involving a misspelling of the word "video."

Even though our name began as a bit of a stumbling block, the search engine optimization (SEO) skills that we've honed over the years have helped us not only overcome that challenge, but go on to become one of Alexa's top 150,000 sites in the world.

Our Culture

Our team's collective years of experience and impressive range of skills are just one of the things that make us unique. We also like to be ourselves, and create an environment for our clients that is both professional and easygoing. 

We set ourselves apart through superior customer service and ongoing dedication to quality for every project, from consultation to completion. VIEO treats our customers as a part of our family, focusing on clear communication and active support to maintain great rapport and strong relationships with our clients. 

Sure, sometimes we get distracted for a few minutes by a funny viral video or spend too long debating whether light sabers are possible, but who we are is key to what we do. Our creative energy is the source of our innovative ideas and quality-driven work ethic, and we give each project everything we’ve got.
