Audacity Designs was a retail store on Solano Avenue in Berkeley, California from 1997 until 2003. It is now a virtual store. At Audacity Designs, we believe that everyday functional items can be embellished in unexpected ways, transformed by art, artifice and design. Our signature objects are handmade by artists--usually with a humorous or whimsical twist, combined with a flair for boldness and drama.
