iO {ahy-oh}

This simple phonetical word personifies Science & Technology in our world today.

iO is not only Jupiter’s primary moon, but it is also based on the globally recognised symbol for “Input/Output”, it stands for the fundamental idea that in computing, technology and digital, every input results in an output. This is something we at iO hold with great importance and responsibility. The work we put in ensures results for our clients.

It has a visual representation that evokes similarities to the boolean digital values 1 & 0. Even tech giant Google called their annual developer summit 'Google I/O’ - an event directed at the worlds best creative coders who 'are building what’s next.’ Its this approach that ensures iO take advantage of our experience within the sector, to develop creative, bespoke and innovative solutions for the UK’s most sought after businesses.
