Design Taco

Design Taco was a pop-up collaborative working and learning space disguised as a taco shop that ran for one week in the spring of 2014. We brought together unexpected and delicious components. Every element of the space was designed to help people hatch new ideas, develop powerful relationships, and enjoy delicious food!

The programming was designed to feature radical mash-ups of companies and people from across roles and industries. These are people you wouldn’t normally find on stage together, but who offer immense perspective on a topic from very different contexts

The pop-up ended, but the dream lives on: bringing the unexpected together to create inspiration!

This event wouldn’t have been possible without our very talented group of professionals and community members who have put a lot of time and sweat into bringing it to life. They mapped customer experience journeys, moderated panels, mastered PR campaigns, and helped craft the vision.
