Annette Jannotta

20120409_FladArchitects-010 B&W.jpg

Annette leads design teams through the creation and delivery of tailored workplace solutions, transforming the way people live, work, and celebrate. She creates a center of gravity, through the lens of design, on each project that weaves her client’s purpose, culture, and strategic business aspirations into one solution. At her core, she is a listener, opportunity-seeker, and choreographer crafting ideas into real world experiences.

An architect and artist in the Bay Area and Pacific Northwest, Annette has the honor of working with clients who are leaders in their industries. Clients’ who are passionate about what they do and who are improving science, health, and education on a global scale including Genentech, Stanford University, Singapore Changi Airport and even the beloved, late Bay Area Feng Shui master, Liu Ming.

In addition to sharing some of her work and the creative thought process that goes into it, Annette will lead a brainstorming session with the audience to discover ways in which designers and the varied construction disciplines can positively transform how we work together and create emotive projects that we are proud of.

Kim Drake

Kim is a strategic designer and communications leader who helps imagine bolder futures for clients, and then crafts the stories to get them there. She specializes in helping clients envision aspiring futures that design makes possible, and combines visual, written, and performance arts to do so. She is currently helping the University of San Francisco, Seattle Genetics, and Gonzaga University create their stories through the lens of the built environment.

Her formative education was in fine art and cultural studies; focusing on the convergence of people and place. In practice she works at the nexus of research, design, and storytelling to convey how strategic planning and architecture provoke transformational change; repositioning clients to acquire financial, legislative, and community support for their long-term growth and success.
