Wait, what? It’s free?! Good afternoon, from Design Works International!

We sure had a good (actually GREAT!) afternoon exploring the Brit + Co pop-up-shop in SOHO today. Want to make pom-pom earrings? Play arcade games and eat cupcakes? How about pet with a giant sequin wall or have some Italian gelato? All of this is FREE (yes, free) this weekend.

Now, you might ask, Design Works, why is all this amazing stuff free? Well, Brit + Co wants women to feel empowered and be able to express their best self. Everything lends itself to a digital, social and experiential conversation about the GOOD that women can achieve in all areas of their life, from good food to good style to good work and good minds, and everything good in between. We think this is pretty cool!

So #CreateGood, and go check it out this weekend! Here are some of our fav things from today’s opening.

Write what you live for and add it to the sticky wall! And treat your self to some bubblegum out of mini vintage gum-ball dispensers.

Happy Doodle Day!

Earlier in the week, we kicked of Design Works International Doodle Month because of today!

DOODLE |ˈdo͞odl|

verb [ no obj. ]; scribble absentmindedly: he was only doodling in the margin.

noun; a rough drawing made absentmindedly.

DERIVATIVES

doodler |-d(ə)lər| noun

ORIGIN early 17th cent. (originally as a noun denoting a fool, later as a verb in the sense ‘make a fool of, cheat’): from Low German dudeltopf, dudeldopp ‘simpleton.’ Current senses date from the 1930s.

Though the formal definition of doodle and doodles are lighthearted and fun, sometimes those absentminded scribbles end up as art. Next time you’re on the phone or in front of the television and you find you’ve left your mark on the take out menu or napkin… hold onto it, you never know what it might lead to.

At Design Works we think that doodles can lead to great things. These examples are some odds & ends by our staff of original print artists which end up being gorgeous original prints. We invite you to contact us to see our extensive line of original artwork from artists all over the world, maybe you’ll even recognize a few of these doodles!
