Real Talk

Grace Bonney, founder of the Design*Sponge, was one of the speakers to treat us to an inspiring talk at this past year’s Weapons of Mass Creation Fest. This incredibly talented author and entrepreneur encouraged the audience to acknowledge, then face their fears, just as she has done.

This brave outlook has brought Grace much success, not only with her blog, but also with other ventures. These include founding a national meetup group for women running creative businesses and publishing her first book, Design*Sponge at Home. Grace is currently writing her second book, Design*Sponge at Hand.

Press play to listen in on Grace’s inspiring message and stay tuned for more of this year’s WMC Fest talks brought to you by Cleveland Graphic Design firm, Go Media.
