Block 81 is the design studio of Angie Herrera in Portland, OR.
I take pride in my ability to translate ideas through design. But I believe it's my what I do in between all the pixel pushing that really rounds out my design skillset: I listen intently; I ask questions; I persuade and recommend; and I think about the user at all times. Also, I need to know why. What is the why behind the project? The interface? The copy? My work is best when there is value behind every pixel. I work diligently to get to that why.
At the risk of sounding arrogant, I've been at this a long time. For nearly two decades if we want to get technical. So yeah, I know a thing or two about web design and branding. That's what time gives us all: experience.
These days, I'm selective about the clients I work with and the projects I take on. I like to become a piece of their puzzles, one block in a collection of others. And I'm hell bent on taking them where they want to go.
It's not always just me working on a project. I expand my team based on the needs of your project. I'm like a general contractor for your project – I bring in people I trust to help get you to your end goal.
