Though he’s worked in art, fashion, and design for years, Michael Purdy is, in essence, an entertainer. That’s why his latest venture, Purdy/Party, San Francisco’s newest event planning atelier, isn’t so much a leap forward for the creative polymath as a return. “Cooking alongside my grandmother, I learned early on that gathering people is about taking them on a journey,” Purdy says. His firm’s comprehensive services—from ideation to venue selection, décor to logistics, floral design to branding—are as fresh and full of surprises as he is and sure to impress even the most experienced party hosts and socialites.
"Every project—no matter the scale—is an opportunity to set a stage, dream big, and create a memorable experience."
