Our history... so far

Block 81 began in 2003 out of necessity more than anything else. With ambition, a penchant for learning, good work, and even a bit of luck, it slowly grew into a multi-disciplinary studio encompassing as much print and graphic design as web design. Eventually the demand for all things digital and web outpaced our work in more traditional design. So we shifted gears and focused primarily on web design and development with a little branding on the side.

For two decades Block 81 has worked with a variety of clients in a variety of industries. But don’t mistake the lack of a vertical for wandering or non-commitment; the same way design transcends any one space, so does our desire to work with awesome companies and the people within them doing awesome work.

Our diverse client history means we can take what we’ve learned and apply that knowledge to new projects and solutions, finding new ways to solve old problems. Through this and more, Block 81 becomes a piece of their puzzles, one block in a collection of others. And we're hell bent on taking them where they want to go.


Our approach to design and development is simple: to create the best possible solution for those who don’t accept mediocrity. Since our start, our goal has been to enable businesses and organizations to have quality branding and online presence that would otherwise require a large agency, while providing service and responsiveness that only a small team can provide.
