Toronto Design Offsite Festival 2014

This year in January, we attended the fourth TO DO, Toronto Design Offsite Festival. WantedDesign is proud to partner with the festival to promote each other’s news on each side of the border.
We had heard lots of positive comments about the Festival but it seems that not many New Yorkers know about it, even though it is so close and accessible. With over 60 events/exhibitions across the city, it was quite a marathon to try to cover most of them in 3 days, but absolutely worth it. Here is an overview of what we loved at TO DO.
