Melissa Mandelbaum – Jul 29th, 2015

A couple of weeks back we held our first DesignTalk event in San Francisco. I was excited to bring our West Coast friends together for an event I’ve always enjoyed in New York. Although slightly nervous, as I was playing host that evening as we kicked off a new DesignTalk chapter, it turned out to be a pretty memorable night. We had six highly entertaining presentations and ended with a superb pizza afterparty at the House of Shields—continuing in Percolate DesignTalk tradition.

Our goal with the event is to bring a diverse set of speakers together to share lessons around a theme. This time our theme was ‘Building from Scratch,’ a theme which prompted people to talk about how they’ve built projects, teams, and companies throughout their careers. We were joined on stage by amazing speakers from California Sunday, Storq, Zendesk, Uber, and Merchbar.

You’ll find videos of the presentations embedded below for your viewing pleasure. To keep up-to-date with all future design happenings follow along @Percolatedesign. We look forward to seeing you at our next event.
