Block 81 is a design studio producing beautifully crafted websites and brands for independent businesses and startups.
February 9, 2015
A few weeks ago we quietly launched a project our team has been working on and off for the better part of a year. Today we're happy to formally introduce you to Budget Sites.
We created Budget Sites out of a desire to serve a slightly different market than the one we serve here at Block 81. Namely, small and micro-businesses needing simple, top-notch, professionally designed websites at a more affordable price. Oh sure, we know that there are other companies that cater to this market day in and day out, but if we dare be blunt, we didn't like what we saw: poor UX and poor design.
So, with Budget Sites, we're putting our money where our mouth is. Because we think we can do better.
Our hope for Budget Sites is to properly serve what we consider a currently under-served market. We don't expect to do things perfectly at the outset, but we are going in with eyes and ears open, ready for feedback, bumps, bruises, and growth. But most of all, we want to help small business owners have beautiful websites without breaking the bank.
