Ugly was the theme of January’s Creative Mornings talk with Steven Artimew and it took place in one of the prettiest venues yet! If you haven’t seen Shopify‘s Toronto office, you need to check it out. It has a cat wall, Mordor jokes, cozy hangout sections, their own bar, and so much beautiful natural light! It’s kind of a dream.
The speaker is a cofounding member of Parkdale Roadrunners, so a challenge was put forth to the attendees to run to the talk. Those who participated in the challenge received a beautiful laser cut wood medal provided by Hot Pop Factory. I have a hard enough time walking in the snow and slush this time of year, so I decided I probably shouldn’t risk trying to run in it. Disaster alert!
The amazing, free breakfast spread looked extra tasty in Shopify’s office kitchen this time around. I particularly enjoyed how much fun people seemed to be having with the bagel slicer.
I don’t believe the video of this particular talk has been uploaded to Toronto chapter’s website yet, but there are lots of other great talks available to watch for free.
