Event Details

Percolate Design is proud to host our DesignTalk event for the design & technology community at the Barrel House in San Francisco.



Building from Scratch

It begins with an itch to solve a problem. What follows is a journey to bring something new into the world: a service, product, installation, publication, conference, team, company. These things don't exist before you set out to build them. As creators you realize new ideas without formal structure, boundaries or infrastructure to support you. These are the things you figure out and make happen along the way. Let’s hear how our speakers have been building from scratch.



Chas Edwards, Califiorna Sunday

Chas is co-founder at California Sunday, a new independent media company based in the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles. Before California Sunday, Chas was the Head of Publisher Development at Luminate.


Dom Goodrum, Percolate

Dom is the Design Director at Percolate, The System of Record for Marketing. At Percolate he builds the practices, relationships and environments designers need to do their best work. Previously, Dom was an Art Director at the Barbarian Group.

Courtney Klein, Storq

Courtney is the CEO at Storq, a company empowering moms-to-be with maternity essentials that are equal parts practical, accessible and stylish. Before Storq, Courtney was a partner at Hard Candy Shell, a digital product agency in New York.


Mark Junkunc, Uber

Mark is a Lead Designer at Uber. He’s passionate about helping communities though the influence of brand impression and corporate citizenship. His mission at Uber is to use design to shift Uber’s brand perception in both the public and in political views.

Edward Aten, Merchbar

Edward Aten is the Founder & CEO of Merchbar, a place for music fans to discover and buy band merchandise. Prior to Merchbar, Edward founded, a social music service used by artists including The Roots and A Tribe Called Quest.  


Sara Menefee, Zendesk

The presentations will be powered by the PechaKucha 20x20 format. A simple, energetic format where speakers show 20 images, each slide advancing automatically after 20 seconds. It’s a pretty awesome way to see stories unfold.
