**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.

Thankful for this rainy Saturday so I can catch up on life….seems like the past 28 years of growing Design Works International, our NYC based design studio, has been a non-stop labor of love…and on Monday August 1st we are officially in our new location at 494 8th Ave. (entrance on 35th street on the 12th floor)…phone number remains the 212-594-0777.
This labor of love is proud to acknowledge our amazing team of sales consultants, textile and graphic designers, interior specialists as well as trend, color and fabric liaisons.
This beautiful blank slate at 494 8th Avenue will soon be our new home. While our address is changing, our phone numbers and emails will remain the same so we can stay connected to you. The office will be closed Thursday and Friday, July 28th and 29th, so we can be up and running at 494 on Monday, August 1st. 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.

Some lucky New York City public school students are getting the chance to see their works of art among the lights of Times Square. 23 student artworks are going up on two giant digital billboards between 43rd and 44th streets. A three-minute video will play hourly. It runs through Oct. 23.
