It's with heavy hearts that due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we've had to cancel this year's student gallery.  But please, take a moment to check out our amazing student's work!
Also, head to our editions page for our latest magazine edition featuring Odyssey creators!

We've all experienced a series of events that have led us to where we are now; students of the Stratford School of Interaction Design and Business. Something nudged at you to come here. Whether you're in your first year, or your fourth year, you continue to grow and are a different person from when you first applied to GBDA or MDEI.

This year's gallery theme is based on our individual journeys. We might all be in the same program, but we each have a unique story. We want to learn about you. What started your journey as an entrepreneur, designer, coder, etc? Where are you now? What are your current challenges? Where do you want to be in five years? What has shaped your individual journey?


Food & Drinks

A catered event offering a wide selection of dinner and snack options, as well as coffee and other refreshments.

Lightning Talks

Students, instructors, and industry professionals will take the stage to start an insightful conversation about their personal journeys.


An incredible opportunity to foster new connections with other creative minds. 

Student Artwork

With 90+ submissions, ODYSSEY will house a diverse collection of amazing artwork varying from audio to visual works. 

Evening Itinerary


Our soy blend candles are hand poured, and handcrafted with soy blend wax & premium quality fragrance oils which allow them to burn longer and have a great scent throw. Lite and Bloom candles are produced in small batches of 4 to ensure the best quality candles.

What Type of Wax do You Use?

Lite And Bloom candles are soy blend candles. The candles are vegan and animal cruelty free. When you lite our candles, the scent will fill your small to medium sized room.

How Long Is the Burn Time?

Our Lite And Bloom 11oz candles burn for 40 hours. (The same as the popular 3 wick candles)

Why Does The Wax Make Patterns on The Jar?

You may notice that your jar(s) seem to have a design or pattern once you recieve it. DONT WORRY its completely normal. This is just how soy likes to behave, your candle will burn, and smell completely normal. (Typically, companies put a label that cover the whole jar and hide the patterns, we choose not to hide it)

Can I Request A Custom Label?

Of course! We can add any photo/design/idea to your candle for a small fee, please email to inquire.

Can I Re-Use My Jar?

Certainly! We recommend keeping your jars and up-cycling them! Just wash the remaining wax out with hot soapy water and you're good to go. NOTE: DO NOT POUR WAX DOWN YOUR DRAIN WHEN WASHING OUT THE CANDLE VESSELS

Do You Offer Returns or Exchanges?

Lite And Bloom purchases come with full customer satisfaction guarantee. Please contact us at liteandbloom@gmail.com for return inquiries. Return shipping is the responsibility of the customer.

How Long Does it Take to Receive my Candle(s)?

All orders are generally processed within 2 to 4 business days. Typical shipping times are between 2-3 business days in Canada and 5-7 days within the USA You will recieve an order confirmation and shipping notification once your candle(s) have shipped.

What Sized Room Will The Scent Fill?

Your scent throw depends on two things. 1. How long you keep you candle lit - we recommend that you keep your candles lit for a minimum of 2 hours 2. The size of the room - Lite and Bloom 11oz candle scent will fill a small to medium sized room
