Design by Nature was thrilled to be a part of the fourth annual Toronto Design Offsite Festival -  a festival promoting local artists and design in venues throughout the city.  It was our first time venturing from the Brick Works and bringing the DxN exhibit to a new location in Toronto.  We felt right at home in the Junction at Neill Cunningham’s Panedomium Books & Discs.

Our exhibit received some great coverage in Design Lines Magazine and a steady stream of visitors during the two week long display from January 13-31, 2014.  We also had a fantastic turn out for our opening night party on January 22nd. Thank you to all the artists and folks who trooped through the snow and cold - that was real dedication!

Of course, none of this would have been possible without the generous support of Neill Cunningham and his amazing staff at Panedomium Books & Discs and our amazing reception food sponsor - The Sweet Potato. This local organic neighbourhood grocer was kind enough to stock us with plenty of fruit, vegetables, dips, coffee and tea for the event.  We also had a sweet donation from Toronto Wheat grass  – a local delivery service for home grown wheat grass. All in all, it was one healthy reception.

Pictures always speak louder than words, so below are some gorgeous photos capturing the magic of the evening by Danielle Griscti. Enjoy!
