Head Start conference

Hey, Toronto-area designers and students! There's an excellent conference this Saturday. I've heard Matteo Bolagna at a few events and he alone is worth the effort.

Be inspired by Design Visionaries from New York:

• Matteo Bologna, Founder + Creative Director, Mucca Design, NY
At Brand New, his talk was described as "Closing the show with a bang, Matteo won over the crowd with his awesome facial hair, amazing work, poignant one-liners, designy jokes and delicious sense of humor"
