Designers + Geeks: Designing Experiences

Thursday, December 14, 2017 - 19:00
Designers + Geeks
San Francisco

A talk by Laura Brunow Miner, founder of Pictory Mag

Memories are made through human experience. Think back to your favorite birthday or the day you crossed the graduation stage to accept your diploma. Those experiences were designed to be memorable. Today we attend conferences, concerts, even museums made for selfies. Each of these experiences are designed with people at the center. In this talk, we'll discuss what makes experiences memorable with some of the leading talent in this field. From big scale productions to intimate gatherings, we'll take a look at the recipe for getting experience design just right.

Let's Celebrate! 

As luck would have it, this event will be our final show of 2017. We'll be pouring our favorite festive brews. So help us ring in a new year with Designers + Geeks with your ugliest holiday sweater. 

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Yes, this event is 21+, and attendees will need to present a valid ID to join us. It's the beer!

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Yelp's beautiful office is near the corner of New Montgomery and Mission St, right in the heart of San Francisco. It's easy to get to from BART, many buses, or your ride sharing app of choice. If you need to drive, paid parking is available nearby.

Can I arrive after 8pm?

No!! For building security staffing reasons, we can not let you in after 8pm. We're not joking - if it's 8:00.0001pm, you will be turned away. This really sucks, and we don't want it to happen - please arrive before 8pm.
