About

Who we are ... and why we're so proud of that.

Our mission: being a partner.

We’re more than just a web development shop. We are a partner — a design partner, a strategic partner, and an implementation partner — and with that comes all of the benefits of any business partner: communication, integrity, and buy-in.

We are content-focused.

We believe in developing sites that serve both the needs of our clients and their users through usable, content-first design.

We are future-friendly.

We know that the web changes quickly, so we build sites that respond to those changes, whether by being usable on all mobile devices or by being structured for future technologies.

We are process-driven.

We depend on understanding site visitors, their needs, and their motivations, and we follow a tested and proven process to ensure consistency and accountability.

Our Core Beliefs

Passion. Progress. Advocacy. Authenticity. Integrity.

Passion

We love designing and building great things on the internet. We believe that working in this industry is not just a job of convenience — it is a passionate expression of what we love. At Blend, we own our role, and our desire to do great things comes not only from a need for professional success but from an inner drive to move our disciplines and industry forward.

Progress

We understand that we have an obligation to work toward improvement in all areas. This includes self-driven education, development, research, and teaching. We believe in what we do, and we believe it is our duty to share our knowledge with our industry.

Advocacy

We love to help clients do great things on the internet and to guide them toward the best solution. We are not passive in this role — we actively fight for and protect the interests of our clients. We are not tied to a single solution but instead are bound by the understanding that each client and project is different, and deserves our advocacy for their best interests.

Authenticity

We believe in never pretending to be something we’re not. We will never be afraid to admit to our limitations, and we understand that the right answer to a question is an honest one.

Integrity

We value relationships, communication, and a sense of right and wrong more than we value invoices. We will do the right thing, even if it means suffering negative impact.

Our Story

It all started fifteen years ago.

Blend Interactive began in 2005 as a partnership between two developers in need of a designer and a designer in need of two developers.

Over the past fifteen years, Blend has expanded in both knowledge and size, with special talents in content management, interactive and conversational design, and content strategy. We also love celebrating birthdays.

We're located in beautiful downtown Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on the second floor of the historic Boyce-Greeley building. We've created a place that, we'll admit, we're pretty proud of.
