Since 2006, AIGA San Francisco has organized San Francisco Design Week as a way to reach out to a diverse community of ~25,000 Bay Area design professionals as well as local businesses, non-profits, entrepreneurs, students, the design-savvy public, tourists, and more. AIGA SF will be partnering with the San Francisco chapters of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA), the Interaction Design Association (IxDA), the Society for Environmental Graphic Design (SEGD), and Adobe Systems, to sponsor a full week of events highlighting the diversity and professionalism of the design community around the bay. Our goal is to raise public awareness of the impact that all design-graphic, product, interior, fashion, architecture, advertising, et cetera-has in the San Francisco Bay Area.
SF Design Week spans the entire Bay Area from Silicon Valley to the city of San Francisco. With more than 60 studio tours and 75 events throughout the week featuring world-renowned designers, entrepreneurs and innovative thought leaders.
