Welcome to San Francisco!

The FREE student session is about to begin.

Graciously hosted at the San Francisco Chronicle, the turnout is impressive, with more than 80 students in attendance.

We’ve got a great lineup of excellent speakers slated.

Rodrigo Sanchez of El Mundo will keynote the day that includes portfolio reviews and presentations by Tiffany Grandstaff and Jami Smith of the Mercury News; Ryan Hildebrandt and Tracy Collins of Gannett Design Studios in Louisville and Phoenix; and the SF Chronicle‘s own Erin Brethauer and Lucio Villa.

The weather here is partly cloudy but a pleasant temperature.

The design barometer is rising.  #SND
