There’s a lot to be said for taking the scenic route in life. In that spirit, a few intrepid Pinterest creative team staffers are headed out on a great American road trip from our HQ in San Francisco all the way to Austin for the SXSW conference.

Good news: We’ll be hosting a series of meet-ups along the way! We’ll be headed from our studio to yours, and want to meet and greet with as many creative folks as we can on the way. Are you a designer, photographer, illustrator, artist, woodworker, or other creative professional? Grab a spot!



We’ll be taking over Day 19’s photo studios for a night of inspiration. Bring your prints, promos, or fab business cards to pin to a cork wall at the event (we’ll also add them to a board on our Pinterest Creative team account).

XIX Studios: March 3, 7 - 10 pm, Sign up here (space limited)



We’ll meet up at a studio and artspace and share a few cold ones with the creative community in this inspiring art town in West Texas.

Private studio: March 6, 7 - 9 pm, Sign up here (space limited)



We’ll take over a local beer garden (it could be considered a studio too — if you don’t think barbecuing is an art, you’ve probably never been to Texas). We’ll have live music, great food and beverage, a range of activities and gifts from the Pinterest creative team.

Our favorite East Austin BBQ joint: March 8, 1 - 4 pm, Sign up here (sold out but add your name to the wait list!)


Stay tuned as we announce a few more meet-ups along the way!
