On November 9th, 2013, Super Typhoon Haiyan (Local Name Typhoon Yolanda) tore through the Pacific Islands of the Philippines leaving an ugly path of destruction, despair and loss. Thousands have been affected by this storm and lack the food and medical care they need.
Many of our artists from the Philippines have asked us for assistance in creating a Typhoon Relief Collective Store, and we have been more than happy to help. Many of these artists have friends and family in the Philippines that have been affected by the disaster and have graciously donated their artwork and royalties towards this cause.
With the assistance of our amazing artists, we have created the Typhoon Haiyan Relief Collective Store, HaiyanRelief. Here you will find hope-inspiring artwork from Design By Humans artists such as Pinkstorm, Zerobriant, Pigboom, DesignbyReg and Song who have generously donated their time, art, and money towards this relief fund. 100% of the proceeds from this store will be donated to the American Red Cross Typhoon Appeal.
As the days pass, we have the opportunity to unite as humans and show our support for those in need, to help them heal and rebuild their communities. Design By Humans inspires life, strengthens humanity and shows support for humans all around the globe.

There are many in need up support, and we are thankful of our artists and heroes from the Philippines who are doing all that they can to help, donating all of their proceeds to the Red Cross Haiyan Typhoon Relief. You can find their T-shirt contributions in the HaiyanRelief Collective Store.
