On the Grid

A San Francisco guide to the famed Financial District by and for designers. After visiting places and making endless lists myself and two colleagues set out to capture the essence of our selected spots.

FiDi sometimes gets a bad rep, as it's quite barren during the weekend, except for a handful of tourists and shoppers. And yet, during the week, it's bustling with life. Bike messengers, heavy lifters, art deco buildings, endless lunch crews, and small shops that have been around for over a hundred years dot the streets and sidewalks.

To peruse the guide in full: Fidi On The Grid. And to hear more about how Hyperakt started the On The Grid platform, check out their write-up.
