DAVID’S TEDx TALK ON THE POWER OF STORY
Shortly after finishing Design School in Munich in 2000, love transplanted Petra from her orderly and rainy home of Germany to laid-back, easy-living San Diego. She embraced Southern California wholeheartedly and picked up hiking, surfing, and the taste for sushi. She went back to school to expand her design education and polish her English skills starting at San Diego City College and finishing at San Diego State University. Petra joined AIGA to network, lead events, and extend her creative family. Now, fully rooted, Petra splits her time between branding and design strategy, teaching design at the City College, traveling, and spending time with her husband and 2 kids. Petra’s work is thoughtful and simple, combining positive energy with wit and freshness.
