Design for impact

Impactful design is rooted in the genuine consideration of complex social realities and personal experiences. We strive to create work that is truly meaningful, from our process all the way to our output.

OUR PROCESS

Engagement

Our process in rooted in forms of community-building, which involve full sincerity, sustained conversation, and professional vulnerability.

Strategy

Design

Inspired by local culture and history, we use our skills in visual communication and information architecture to challenge perceptions and create meaningful work.

UPHOLDING OUR VALUES

Design should always reflect the human experience

Works of Heart believes that good design happens when there is a conscious and strategic decision to reflect the brand’s story—when a design is created with a deep understanding of the community’s needs and insights of a human response.

People with the same goal must work together

Our goals are simple: we want every Filipino to live a better life. And despite the simplicity of our goals, the path is difficult. The country is a work in progress—but for as long as we share the same goals as the partners we collaborate with it is a path we will always be willing to take.

Beautiful stories must be heard

Stories help us connect with each other to navigate life’s complex social problems. Works of Heart was founded on the belief that everyone has a story and no matter how small or seemingly meaningless, they all deserve to be heard.

Design must be done for good

At the heart of everything we do, we design with integrity and strive for truth. Every decision we make and every output we create, we do to leave a positive impact in the lives of our fellow Filipinos.

Partners as co-creators

Together with our partners, we co-design better stories and output in pursuit of a just society. Some of our partners include:

SOCIAL ENTERPRISES AND BUSINESSES
FOUNDATIONS AND CORPORATIONS
