Passion

How it All Started

It was the year Facebook was born, and "blogging" was deemed "Word of the Year".

Blackbird was conceived in a flash the Summer of 2004 - just a guy with an art degree, a wife, two children, a mortgage, zero savings, and suddenly... no job. Necessity is truly the mother of invention.

No seriously, you might say that we know a thing or two about a thing or two. Perhaps even above skill and experience, we know how to improvise, make do, work under pressure, and get things done.

Twelve years later, we have a ridiculously talented staff of designers, developers and marketers. We have equally great clients and partners, and a beautiful Downtown Willoughby studio.

I think it's safe to say that now, in 2017, we may just be around for a while.
