Valued Clients and Business Partners,
In the midst of the pandemic and ongoing social discord, WDG has been watching, listening, staying informed and supporting.
A few weeks ago, orders for the pandemic began slowly lifting and companies started thinking about how to return to work. We were proactive in helping, not only our clients but also our industry partners adjust to this new world – then two weeks ago, the nation shifted its focus to the tragic death of George Floyd and issues of racial inequality.
As an office of diverse and creative individuals with varied backgrounds and identities – embedded in a city known as a true cultural melting pot – we stand in support of all efforts to help end racial injustice and recognize the need for meaningful change.
As an organization, we are looking at concrete ways to commit our unique skillset to action. Because we have a responsibility to the neighborhood in which we operate and the communities in which we live, we want to engage our office with our community to help bring design and dignity to all.
In that spirit, we pledge to join The 1+ program, the largest pro bono service network that connects non-profits with design professionals. Our mission is to design for humanity – design that supports safe spaces and dialogue, that is inclusive and empowering. Design for progress and equity.
