Help us spread the love this holiday season! From November 26 until December 24, a percentage of all whatisblik.com sales will go to the Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA, which ranks among the world’s elite institutions for pediatric research, teaching and care. We are currently working with Mattel on a project for the hospital. We’ve been hired to art direct all aspects of the job as well as design, manufacture and install wall graphics at the Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA Play project. We were so touched by the work Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA does for children that we wanted to give back – with your help, of course!
More about our work with Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA:
Housed within the I.M. Pei designed Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA was named with a generous gift from Mattel Children’s Foundation. The facility is beautifully designed with minimalist details and clean lines. The goal of the Hospital Play project is to infuse the space with…well, a sense of playfulness essential to development, learning, healing and growth. The project is starting with a pilot phase, focusing on the 5th floor and will expand next year. We are working with one of our collaborators, Patrick Hruby, to create a magical world for the kids complete with an enchanted forest, whimsical garden and an undersea adventure.
Update: Our installation happened in December. Here is a sneak peek with a few photos. More photos and a video to come!
January 2012 Update: Thanks to everyone who shopped with us from November 26 to December 24, a donation has been made to Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA. We appreciate your holiday support!
