The devastation created by the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Nepal almost two weeks ago has far from subsided.

For this year’s Design Week Portland, our amazing Studio created a pop-up shop all about the creative process: W+K Goodness Workroom.
“Process is the adventure, the journey into uncharted territory. Best-laid plans aside, for most designers the end result of any project rarely bares much resemblance to the original concept. Of course everyone focuses on the final result, but for designers process is the journey that is equal parts comedy and tragedy, rife with success and, of course, plenty of failure.
And let’s cut to the chase, those bad days, when no idea seems to work, they fucking suck. Oh but those good days, when the clouds finally part, the stars align and the idea is fully realized beyond expectation, well they make it all worthwhile. Don’t they?”
If you didn’t make it out to their open house, fret not! You can still get your hands on some of the rad creations by the most talented people in the biz: check out the Goodness store featuring Workroom prints and other amazing goodies.
You can also jam to the Workroom Spotify playlist as you shop for Christmas gifts for your favorite creative person.
