Creative Mornings Toronto 3, Vanessa Eckstein
Friday, February 24, 2012 from 8:30 AM to 10:00 AM (EST)
Vanessa Eckstein is a bold designer with a fascinating background and body of work that demonstrates an inquisitive mind at work.
Originally from Argentina, Vanessa returned to Toronto just over a year ago after running her practice in Mexico City for 8 years. As a partner in Blok design she spends her days looking for "other ways" of doing creative work. She is a vocal advocate of embracing the chaos and unpredictability of the creation process as a fuel for strategic, exhilarating and effective work.
Vanessa will share her thoughts with us in an inspiring lecture in the cozy, friendly and roomy space in the Center for Social Innovation.
Vanessa’s work is part of the permanent collection of the Royal Ontario Museum of Canada and she is recipient of numerous international awards and honors such as the Clio, The Type Directors Club of Tokyo, The One Show, ID, Brno Biennale, Biennale of Graphic Design Russia, Trnava Poster Triennial (Slovakia), The Art Directors Club of New York, The Advertising & Design Club of Canada, and the Type Directors Club among many others.

Vanessa Eckstein, the willowy, thirty-something, Argentinean-born principal of blok design, seems to be doing it all beautifully— and if not quite effortlessly, at least in a way that 99 percent of professional women would find inspirational, if not intimidating.
'I'm a juggler,' she says. 'You can't really do it all, but it's worth trying.' " Read the complete article
