We successfully launched our San Francisco office, and have already been welcomed by our clients. We are about to get very busy this summer providing even more streamlined and timely service in prime locations such as San Francisco, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Sausalito, Seattle, San Diego, and anywhere on the West Coast. We also still have our core team stationed in New York City; this will allow us to help you support bi-coastal events perfectly.
Our Senior Graphic Recorder James Lake started out in our New York Office & made many cross country trips to support our client’s west coast events. He’s now happily head of our west coast office, right in the heart of San Francisco. You’d think a lifelong New Yorker on the west coast would be a culture shock, but he has easily taken to the lifestyle & enjoys becoming part of the community.
San Francisco is a colorful city that will serve as a continuous source of inspiration. Just like our Brooklyn team, we are sourcing creativity from this very vibrant, diverse west coast metropolis.
The color combinations are truly remarkable. This inspiration may even be seen in our graphic recording, sketchnote & infographic work. Due to the generally moderate temperature year round, the buildings stay in such good condition & the colors keep their vibrance. A really good collection of photographs is on UpOut.
Being local to SF, James is constantly asked for recommendations on fun things to do in the city so he created the above infographic.
For the best view of the city, climb to the top of Bernal Heights Park, make sure to bring your dog as well! Many of the city’s parks (in green) have great views & offer a fun place to hang out in the afternoon.
The Ferry Building farmer’s market is one of the largest in the country, that also was the site of one of our Draw Your Big Idea social listening events. Huge graffiti murals are throughout the city, most notable is Clarion Alley in the Mission District. Take a tour & see all the different styles & themes the artists used to create these colorful walls.
Lastly, here is a handy infographic we created that shows how to pack a proper SF bag, read more about it here. These tips have been a benefit to our friends, colleagues, & clients.
Many of our clients have offices in both NYC & SF, & they are so happy to have local support for their meetings. This also means we are closer than ever to more cities & look forward to providing the best value for you & your engagements.
