The BBG Design Series at Next Door: A Recap of Our First Class

Last night marked the first session of our Design Series at Next Door® Café in Lakeview East, which focused on the benefits that investing in design can provide for businesses of all types. We were thrilled to be able to provide advice and answer questions for business-owners across a variety of fields and in various stages of developing their design elements.

The BBG Design Series continues next month at Next Door® Café, with our next class focusing on helping business-owners and creative professionals work better together to create unforgettable results. If you’re looking to  learn how to communicate more effectively with your creative team or your clients, we hope to be able to see you there for what should be a fun and engaging discussion. Check our Twitter and Facebook in July for the registration link for that class.

Hike SF Conference Recap April 4 & 5, 2014

On behalf of everyone involved to make Hike San Francisco a reality over the last 9 months, I’d like to send a giant thank to everyone who attended Hike SF over the weekend.

What literally started as a lunchtime Skype chat between Laura and myself where we said “Hey, I love what you do, let’s do something amazing together,” turned into something that even the two of us couldn’t have imagined, so we thank you.

We hope you had an absolutely invaluable experience and walked away inspired, knowledgable and with at least one kernel of genius, one quote, one piece of advice that you take to heart.
