Works of Heart is a youth-led design agency made up of passionate and service-oriented creatives working together for a better Philippines. By providing effective design for all—most especially mission-based organizations, we aim to be your creative partner, working hand-in-hand to tell your story through visual communication and grounded solutions.
In 2012, Works of Heart was born in a college classroom as an answer to the question, “How can I be of service?”
Grounded in the framework “passion meets purpose”—the intersection between deep gladness and the world’s hunger—Works of Heart became a platform to allow its founders to design for a cause: to solve problems for communities by raising awareness for their cause, and in so doing, allowing them to reach wider audiences.
With the team’s skill for design, and passion for making a difference, Works of Heart was created to become a designer’s tool for change.
The Philippines has the most number of non-government organizations in South East Asia, but despite that, 26.3% of Filipinos still live in extreme poverty. At the root of everything, therein lies our problem.
While we know that putting up Works of Heart is not the solution to all of our country’s problems, in one way or another, this is our way of making a difference—however big, however small.
More than making the world a better place through art and design, Works of Heart is about finding that intersection between need and skill, what the country needs and what we’re capable of, and bridging that gap.
