We are Block

\ A 20-year-old startup

Founded on April 1, 2002, Block is the love child of (formerly) globe-trotting creative couple Tanya Sim and Mark Braddock. From its less-than-salubrious beginnings in Mark’s parents’ poolroom, Block has grown into Western Australia’s first (and we would argue, only) full-service brand-first agency delivering strategic creative advertising and design outcomes. From our inception, we have stayed true to our founding ambition to produce communications that are once exciting and sensible. We’ve been committed to thinking big and delivering bigger; to crafting solutions that extend naturally from the personality of our clients’ businesses, services, and products. As we enter our third decade in business, we continue to produce work that is honoured at major award shows across Australia, Asia, North America and Europe, all thanks to a world-beating team of exceptionally smart people who have chosen to work with us and to make Block their own.

Block is a curated team of internationally-experienced, multi-talented, world-class questioners, thinkers, creators, and doers. We’ve got the depth, experience, and track record to deliver projects of any scale on your deadline, while ensuring that our senior team is always directly involved.

We don’t believe in ‘off-the-shelf’ or ‘one-size-fits-all’; we always go deeper. We identify opportunities, expand thinking, and craft practical solutions that help your business stand out, communicate effectively, and succeed.
