The City by the Bay is - not at all surprisingly - home to some of our biggest and best startup projects. From digital currency inventors to post production companies, the roster of our own Homepolish-designed projects covers much of the vast entrepreneurial spectrum that makes up Silicon Valley. In addition to transforming Golden Gate City’s work spaces, our designers have been improving the homes of residents and their families - tech related or not. Drawing from the city’s diverse cultural history, our Homepolish-designer projects cultivate and expand the tastes of our amazing SF clients. So whether your startup’s funding was just approved and you need a bigger office or your quaint Haight Street apartment is in need of a revamp, we’ve got the designer to match your taste.
