"L8 is a tool for professionals, to help shape and develop their lighting design ideas, and share them. But on the other side, it is a major part of the creation process. L8 is an environment where ideas are born and nurtured. It doesn’t matter what you want to do, and it doesn’t matter if it’s been done before or not — we develop our software so that people from all skill levels of the industry can create their best work. Our users’ ideas are the significant driver for us to make the best product we can, from inception to realization. The way that L8 works best is when it is used by people who enjoy what they do"
- Dmitriy Giventar (founding director of L8 LLC, product developer)
