While a slowdown in February and March forced layoffs and pay cuts, New York City's call for personal protective equipment prompted a transformational pivot at Bednark Studio. Over one weekend, the company installed a new system that led to the production of 2.7 million face shields in 90 days. It also designed and installed 5,000 low-cost divider shields for ride-share drivers. Along the way, it opened its books to employees, offering pay transparency.

When the Covid-19 pandemic began, B-Unlimited created the Alliance Collection, a partnership with local businesses—including local restaurants, bars, gyms, and music venues—that allowed them to create preorder products for sale on B-Unlimited’s site. B-Unlimited would save production until after the ordering period, preventing up-front costs for the businesses while they maintained an active social media presence and generated revenue. B-Unlimited also partnered with the Northwest Arkansas Food Bank to sell T-shirts, which ultimately raised enough money to purchase 71,834 meals for families in the region.
