Unveiling Format Magazine, a New Daily Destination for the Creative Community

Toronto, ON — August 11, 2015 — Launched today, Format Magazine is a new online publication that explores the creative mind. Taking an interest in creative individuals and their process, it goes beyond showcasing work; it delves into what drives people to create and how they think and make.
