I’m a jewelry designer of sorts and a glass bead maker. I actually took some graphic design instruction  in this very city a long time ago.The City has really changed since then. Maybe some of it has to do with my being a young person then. Anyway at any time then or now SF, is a feast for the eyes in its galleries and in its natural beauty. There are 2 sides to this city,the beautiful and the not so, the rich and the poor. I actually enjoy taking the muni and rubbing elbows with the real ethnic people of this most varied city. The people here are most helpful, no matter what race or color. I know the city- but not everything and didn’t always know if I was heading in the right direction. The design here from t shirts to advertising is stunning. I am a designer at heart and needed some inspiration. Today I visited the De Young museum. Wow!
