Nick Magiera: How it all started

I graduated from Fordham University’s Gabelli School of Business in New York City with a major in Business Administration, a double concentration in Marketing & Management and a minor in Communications. On top of that, I was a 4-year starter on the Division-1 FCS Fordham Rams football team, finishing off my senior year as an unanimously-voted team captain. My business career started out at America’s largest independently-owned public relations firm, ID Public Relations, working for high profile clients such as Nintendo, Ben Stiller, Netflix, and Jennifer Lawrence. I quickly moved up in the marketing world by landing a job as the Marketing Manager of one of the country’s leading pool & spa manufacturers, Pleatco. It amazed me how in-tune sales were with the quality of our marketing materials. Working closely with their VP of Marketing, I became infatuated with the knowledge and understanding of great design.

Then my life was changed

I took a short term trip to help out at a children’s home in Mozambique, Africa operated by Iris GlobalMy heart was wholly and utterly crushed by the overwhelming poverty that the people of the land carried, but was also unexpectantly touched by their shear joy. This really put my life at a standstill. After much prayer and council, I decided to resign from the comforts of my life in New York City and move overseas to love on the poorest of the poor. After two years of serving in Mozambique, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, Thailand, and Cambodia I have returned home a changed man. 

What’s next

I ultimately aspire to live overseas permanently, serving and loving on the poor. Until then, I am doing what I can to help from America. I started World Wide Design as a way to help save the world. Don’t get me wrong – WWD is a capitalist company, we’re about profit. We’re not ashamed about making money. But there’s a right way to do it. I don’t believe that we have to give up a large portion of our return to ‘do good.’ I donate at least 10% of all profit WWD acquires to save the world. I will continue to do that no matter where I am in the world. Can you imagine if every American did that? The change would be colossal. Eventually, WWD will do even more. I have a vision to recruit a native workforce and teach them design, how to start their own business, or how to earn a living by freelancing off of WWD clients. They will have to work for it, but lives will change. We will change the world. Together.
