I have known Gary Block for over 30 years and worked with him on dozens of marketing communications projects.
When I was an assistant vice president for Pacific Savings Bank in Southern California, Gary designed some of the bank’s print ads and brochures. When I became marketing director for Laventhol & Horwath he designed an outstanding report on the status of Orange County Real Estate, called Outlook: Orange County. It was extremely well received by our clients and prospects. And, in fact, he was asked to design a report for L&H’s Los Angeles office as well.
More recently, as a marketing strategist and project manager for Marketing Sense, Gary has helped me with some of my clients’ marketing pieces including logo design, brochures and ads. I enjoy working with Gary because of his creativity, work ethic and easy to work with personality. Technically, he’s a master! Personally, he cares about the work he does and has always delivered on time and within budget. What more could a marketing project manager ask for?

I have worked with gary for many years. When I was marketing manager for Ektelon we were third in market share and looking for a brand identity. After interviewing several large ad agencies, we decided to go with The design Block because of Gary’s enegy and commitment to wanting to help build our brand over the other agencies hung up on how much we were willing to pay.
Gary was instumental in developing our play with fire brand identity from concept as well as design and print. He took the lead and helped run all aspects of our marketing efforts including relationships with our top players.
Within 3 years, Ektelon became the number one racquetball brand, and still remains one of the top brands today.
