"In 1999, I started Workhouse in a decrepit, rented kitchen on a wayward side street in Soho. Since inception, the wealth of our work has traversed every imaginable sphere and space from arts and culture, retail and hospitality, publishing and automotive, design, architecture, and the digital frontier within a city that has withstood the Aids crisis, superstorms, stock market crashes, blackouts, and the horrors of 9/11.
New York has survived more than any city in the country, and it’s still standing.
As we contend with global Covid concerns that threaten any semblance of stability and safeguard, we must look over our lost landscape and recognize the optimistic opportunities among us. To flourish and flower. To seek and ascend.
For entrepreneurs who persevere, enlighten and engage, to brands that persist in making bold and beautiful brushstrokes, to artists who forever electrify and enthrall, these are the moments that matter.
As Workhouse celebrates its 22nd anniversary, I am forever grateful to our clients, staff, and associates who believed steadfast could make stardust."
- Adam Nelson, Founder & CEO, Workhouse
