Bloc Design Celebrates its Sixth Year of Business

December 12, 2017

Another great year in the books as we reached the half-dozen mark!  This year marked another year of a few new additions to the team, a new and much roomier office space (within walking distance of four good breweries!), picked up a few new awards, as well as opportunities to add a few new clients.

 

We cannot say enough how thankful we are to our dedicated team to helping us make this another successful year, and we truly appreciate our clients and partners as well.  Excited to see what another year unfolds.

Bloc Design Moves to New Office Space

June 20, 2017

This past Thursday and Friday the staff rallied together to help our movers get packed up, unloaded and reassembled. The great part about having a phenomenal team is everyone jumps in and gets it done, whether it's moving an office or designing your project! Everyone was in great spirits despite the heat, and we greatly appreciated Kelly Walls with Anova Site Furnishings for treating the team to some celebratory and refreshing happy hour drinks at our new neighbor across the street, Lenny Boy Brewery.
