Works of Heart Workshop Series: Drawing Board
Works of Heart is a Design Agency, a cause-oriented business, and a movement that believes in the power of art and design to be used as tools for social change. We provide design services to mission-based organizations (NGOs, foundations, social enterprises, and startups). One of our goals is to have art and design be appreciated more by Filipinos, and as a movement, we envision a country that invests in design solutions to catapult ideas to their great potential. In line with this, we are having our second Drawing Board Series: 6 workshops in the span of four weeks, starting on September 20, 2014, to be held in o2 Space Solutions in Makati City.
We believe that great brands and great designs all start with an idea, enlightened by the passion to create change, and sketched first and foremost on a drawing board -an artist and designer’s space to ideate and create. Therefore, to guide our participants when they first execute their passion projects on paper, we have these workshops: Design Principles, Branding, Lettering and Typography, Basic Adobe Illustrator, and Photography. We have designed them in such a way that it will help them share their ideas with the world and propel their advocacies forward.
The format of the workshop will be divided into four parts: Eyes, Mind, Hands, and Heart. Art, design and creativity need all senses in order to tap our inner potentials, aspirations and talent, and use that to come up with an artwork or a design solution.
