What you'll do

EXPLORE I collated a creative guide of designerly spots around Valencia Street (my favorite part of SF) based on my love of travel, interest in local vendors, and my keen eye for design. We will explore some of my most treasured places and you’ll get a chance to meet the owners who will share their creative design processes. CAPTURE I’ll be snapping photos to capture your experience to use for your Instagram or personal collection. You will see how I compose photos as a designer and I’ll share some easy photography tips. LEARN You will learn about the history and design of each place we visit through the owners’ stories as well as my explanations of design principles and the integral role of design in the success of businesses. You will learn a bit about what I do as a user experience (UX) designer at Google and the application of design-thinking methods in everyday life. I will also share my experience of living and getting to know the city.

What's included

Food
Ice cream or coffee/tea to satisfy any cravings
Equipment
Mini guidebook of my favorite spots in Mission District (and SF) so you can continue discovering hidden gems

Hi I’m Amy: a Google designer of 3 years, an artist, a San Franciscan, a photographer, & an avid traveller of over 29 countries. I believe that falling in love with a city is done by living like a local, learning something new, and making some friends along the way. I’ve curated this experience to feel like a group of pals exploring some of Valencia Street’s prettiest local spots through the lens of design. Hopefully, you’ll meet cool people, eat good food, find cute items, and see sights that’ll make your designer-heart sing!

-Meet in Mission District at one of my favorite cafés with a patio -Head over to a warehouse hosting an SF ceramics factory and an adorned bakery -Talk to the owner/designer behind a local artisanal shop -Either sip on a matcha latte or try some unique ice cream flavors like thai iced tea or ube -En route, snap some photos at the not-to-be-missed graffiti wall -Finish with some hand-rolled pasta at a hip spot or a drink at my favorite bar
