For the last month, a team of Would Works staff members and community partners have been participating in an intensive design workshop at the Stanford d.school. Through interviews, co-design sessions, observations and prototypes, our team is helping to redesign the waiting area experience at the Skid Row Community Refresh Spot.
We are busy making 300 custom branded oak cocktail boards for the The Los Angeles Impact Box this holiday season. This unique gift box is put out by our friends at Gifts for Good, in partnership with LA Original and the City Of Los Angeles.
Would Works just finished a custom commission of twenty branded risers for WayB carseats. These solid poplar boxes will travel around the country as part of the WayB trade show booths. We engraved their logo on all four sides for maximum versatility and brand visibility.
We recently finished a custom commission forTwo Tails Pet Company. These handsome display racks are being featured at pet stores across the country. Would Works staff designed this sturdy plywood rack with a simple slot joint so it assembles easily without tools or fasteners and packs flat for economical shipping.
Would Works designed and created 1100 unique wooden "traveling shabbat candles" for IKAR's annual Purim gift bag. These small portable candles are perfect for outdoor shabbat dinners or for ceremonies on the go.
Would Works was commissioned by a local architecture firm, Office 42, to build a large set of custom outdoor furniture for a public hygiene center in Skid Row called the Refresh Spot. This furniture provides residents of Skid Row with a safe, clean and comfortable place to relax while using the invaluable services of the Refresh Spot such as toilets, showers and laundry.
We recently partnered with LA's oldest distillery--Green Bar Distillery--to create a line of branded cocktail boards for use behind their bars and for sale in their retail shop. Stop by the distillery for a cocktail making class or to outfit your home bar with delicious organic spirits, cocktail making supplies and of course a Greenbar/Would Works cocktail board!
We are proud to be participating in a broad collaboration between City of Los Angeles, the Skid Row Community Improvement Coalition, along with designers and community organizations across LA to furnish a pilot hygiene center in Skid Row.
