I am a strong believer in Design Thinking, in the power of following your gut, in the value of a blue collar work ethic, and in doing work that does good. I most enjoy developing creative solutions based on solid strategic insights in an honest, clear, collaborative, organic way while having fun.

Oh the things people say
What you may not realize is, behind the unassuming glasses, impeccable white shirts with ginormous billowy cuffs, fastidious desk layout and constantly changing hair styles, Blake Bäkken is a soldier.
Blake is a meticulous, principled designer who has synthesized the most refined elements of design history in developing his deeply considered approach to design. I learned a great deal in working for him and I appreciate the way he champions the power of design to elevate our everyday experience.
An amazingly talented designer with impeccable taste and style.
Blake is a creative that will listen, inform, lead and execute design strategies with passion. His approach is critical yet thoughtful, simplistic and mindful. He embraces any challenge on point and provides clarity throughout the process. Truly, one of the hardest working creatives I’ve ever known. Deeply committed to his team, his craft and the clients success.
Some things I do well
Even with experience, starting an assignment as if I know very little can be the key to learning a lot and solving problems. It means keeping an open mind. It means investigating an unlikely place for an answer. It means asking a question others might not ask. And, though I understand design’s ability to communicate through style, the goal is to uncover the truth in a way that is simple, thoughtful and unexpected.
