Seven Blocks Design

Seven Blocks Design is about using design for engagement and communication between our clients and their audience.

Seven Blocks Design is about the concept of building blocks for design-focused branding and marketing.

Inspired by other “seven blocks” philosophies  on social media and user experience, founder Diana Hobstetter based the company name on the concept of building blocks as a foundation to growth.
