It’s really high time I celebrated my own city on the blog. And now I have the perfect occasion. I don’t talk much about my work here—I’m a magazine Art Director—but over the last couple of months the work life and travel loving have been intersecting.
I’m lucky enough to have a job that is creative and that I love, but what made it extra great was working on Toronto Life magazine’s special issue on Neighbourhoods (with an amazing team of editors, photographers & other smart people). A sort of travel guide to the city made for its inhabitants. It’s packed with photos, maps and info on the best places to eat, drink and hang out, including some of my personal faves (hello: Keriwa Cafe, St. Lawrence market, Cherry Bomb...). It would actually make a pretty sweet tourist handbook too.
If you’re in Toronto you can buy it on any news stand, and if not you can probably get it through the TL website. Or leave a comment and I might be able to score you a copy.
We’re also having a launch party for the issue on June 9th at The Shops at Summerhill (across from the big LCBO) from 10-4 — so come out, say hi & celebrate this damn exciting city!
