The ADCC is excited to announce our upcoming event, Design San Francisco, featuring guest speaker and exhibit curator Tom Crabtree, Founder and Creative Director of Manual.

Manual is a multi-disciplinary design studio in San Francisco. Established in 2009, Manual’s diverse portfolio spans many design disciplines and business sectors including cutting edge transportation & technology, music, arts, culture, beer, coffee, and whisky. Basically anything that piques their interest.

Tom’s experience in graphic design—specifically brand identity—spans 19 years and has taken him from London—where he worked at acclaimed studios working in arts, fashion, and luxury lifestyle—to Apple in California where he joined the marketing team 2006 to work on the iPhone launch and packaging.
