History

In 2004, Chelsea Sanders started Blueline, a photography and design company in her barn in Bloomington, Indiana.  As Blueline expanded the barn could not contain the budding creative enterprise, so in 2010 Blueline opened up one of Bloomington’s first Co-Working spaces. We operated as a co-working space until we had too many employees and not enough desks to rent to other entrepreneurs.

 

Staying true to our artistic roots, our office space also doubled as an Art Gallery bringing the community together, and hosting a memorable or not so memorable party from time to time. In fact one of these gatherings is where Co-Owner Kevin met his wife! In 2013 Blueline Pictures was started, to focus on film and television work in addition to the corporate and commercial work Blueline creates.
