Our History

Graphite Lab was born out of necessity to create beautiful things.

As a studio under the Black Lantern Holdings umbrella, we show our roots of game design in all that we do. We started  Graphite Lab to focus on services that could supplement our game development - but quickly realized that we had much more to offer besides artwork.

Seeing that the St. Louis area had a great creative foundation, but no established game development studios, we planted our feet firmly in St. Louis soil and opened Graphite Lab in January 2009.

We now create all types of digital centerpieces using a blend of traditional technique and modern technology.
