Our Story

Where We Come From

In 2005, Border7 Studios was started in a high school computer class when seven friends came together and decided to take their senior computer science project, and turn it into a digital agency that would help eCommerce companies grow faster. Over a decade later, Border7 continues to mentor and hire students, as well as alumni from Santa Susana High School. We are proud to be able to create jobs for our local community and provide work experience to students who are passionate about strategy, design, and programming.
