Colorbloq is inspired by the concept of ‘color-blocking’, the process of taking opposite colors and pairing them together to make interesting and complementary color combinations. We see our space -- complete with colorful shipping containers -- as a blank canvas to design experiences that bring people together from diverse walks of life. The key things that define Colorbloq are 1) Creativity in the Simple Things, 2) Diversity is Complementary, and 3) It’s more fun Together. The creators share an entrepreneurial spirit and creative passion. They are driven toward building community and creating something out of nothing, and Colorbloq was a happy accident through experimentation. For more information, visit www.colorbloqsf.com.
