**Update: Since the article was written, Hurricane Irma has hit Florida and devastated many families. We are expanding our diaper drive efforts to include Florida as well. Please continue to send (or let us know to pick up) diapers, wipes, adult diapers, baby supplies to, 494 8th ave, Floor 12. All of your help is much appreciated!
We know how horrible this situation is in Houston and we want to help. No-one comes together better than New Yorkers, so lets prove it. We have been brainstorming in the studio today, and have decided we are setting up a baby diaper & wipes collection to send to The Texas Diaper Bank. They are directly helping families everyday and we want to support them in their efforts and we need YOUR help!
We want to make it EASY:
Drop off diapers/wipes/non-perishable baby supplies to our studio conveniently located on 35th & 8th Ave // 494 8th Ave, Floor 12
Email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know where WE can pick up your donations (anywhere M-F, South of 125th street)
We are sending the box on Monday, September 25th, so get your donations in before then!
In memory and recognition of people who have been affected by the storm, we have created this print- We hope you enjoy.
Looking for other ways to help? The American Red Cross is accepting donations on its website. You can also text HARVEY to 90999 to donate $10. Donations to the Salvation Army can be made online, by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY (1-800-725-2769) or texting STORM to 51555.

We thank you all for your patience while we settle in – we can’t wait to welcome you to 494!
At Design Works International, we believe that ultimately it all begins with the artist and their talents. Computers are simply the next generation of tools which extend the brush and paint or pencil and paper.
With the focus of our society on technology and social media, it’s nice to see the younger generation still involving themselves in the creation of art using traditional media. NYC is home to some amazing places to see and experience art and here are some great stories about a few up-and-comers who inspire us.
We hope that more kids will show us their wonderful creations and maybe they will be the next generation of designers here at Design Works International.
