NEXT DESIGN CONTEST:
Finalists revealed

Because we believe in emerging talent, we have decided to call upon the next generation of Canadians to add their creative touch to our collections and see their ideas produced and distributed in Mobilia stores.

When Mobilia asked us to travel to Europe on an inspiring trend watching business trip, we thought we’d make the most of it. I mean, who wouldn’t do the same, right? The “we” in this story is Mobilia’s Marketing Director and the Creative Director at Mobilia’s branding agency.
