About the talk

Join us as Peachy Powerhouse, Kelly Davison, engages the audience in a series of interviews and conversations about where and how design lives in San Diego. Small businesses are fundamental to the DNA and economy of the region, and they help define the “San Diego Experience” for both residents and visitors.

With a focus on human-centered design and vision to make San Diego a place “where it’s great to be a customer,” Peachy will highlight design perspectives and techniques of five local small businesses that are emblematic of how San Diego thinks, collaborates, brings community together, and expresses its originality.

Five small businesses will be profiled in the interview series, including Lonely Floater, Local Skateshop, RL Speech Therapy, Cafe Moto, and Border X Brewing.
