Welcome to the imagination factory.
Monoblock was created for those who want to pursue a creative life. Our motto, #LibresparaCrear (#FreetoCreate) embodies our purpose: to partner up with artists, dreamers, adventurers, offbeats, students and entrepreneurs, to bring on the uniqueness, artistry, inventiveness and daring imagination the worlds needs to see.
Since 2007 we’d make planners, books, notebooks, a wide array of desk supplies and paper goods to make their work and study beautiful, inspiring and fruitful. We aim to keep our fresh, playful, over-curious and positive look on life as we continue to grow, non-stop, throughout the world.
We are motivated by curiosity. We like to create our own rules, paint outside the lines, learn. But above all things, we like to do what we do. With productive processes that respect our planet and people. With ambition for quality. With a smile. From Buenos Aires, Argentina, to the world.
Free to create
We believe in the Power of imagination. We want to contribute to awakening it, in every human being in whom it is asleep, through a message of love.
Because where there is love, there is freedom. And where there is love and freedom, there is creation.
Doing something so beautiful and extraordinary that it inspires others to do the same.
Emerging and renowned artists have accompanied us throughout the years in this adventure. Together we create a variety of products and collections, with inspiring themes as diverse as travel, botany, decoration, magic, coaching, literature, gastronomy and more. Creative freedom, self-knowledge, humor, beauty and the certainty that we can all be artists in everyday life are the fundamental concepts that run through and unite all our collections.
A community of “Everyday artists”
If you believe in embellishing your everyday and bringing joy to everything you do, you are not alone: there are many of us and our joy is contagious.

A little bit of history
Monoblock was always a love story. Created by Vik (illustrator, editor) and Pablo (designer, entrepreneur) in February 2004, it began as the life project that would professionally unite this couple of self-taught creatives. They originally functioned as a branding agency, working for important national and international brands. And although their project grew, they both felt that there was something more to do… together.
Fascinated by the talented young artists they were discovering every day through social media, and with the conviction that it was possible to create an innovative editorial model, they embarked on an unexpected adventure: to integrate these artful contents (and microcontents) to designed products.
In 2006, with the support of a few illustrators, they created the Author’s Notebooks. They chose this product for various reasons, but mainly because being notebook users, they could not find one that they liked. They decided to work with limited series, each inspired by a single concept. The first series carried a universal message of love, Live the love.
They began to hold exhibitions with each new series release, facilitating the encounter between artists and the general public. They embarked on the Monoblock Tours, joining design events and fairs across the country, also participating for years in Trimarchi DG, in the Puro Diseño fair in Buenos Aires, in the International Book Fair of Buenos Aires and having participated also from the International Book Fair in Lima, Peru.
In 2012 they opened their first store in the Patio del Liceo cultural gallery. That first store gave way to four other stores in Buenos Aires: Palermo Soho, Villa Crespo, Recoleta and Alto Palermo.
Today, they seek to continue expanding their message of love and creativity throughout the world.
