The 14th Annual San Francisco Design Week (SFDW), which attracts annually 60,000 visitors from around the world, is returning this year as the first regional virtual design festival.
The all-online program will kick off June 15-25, celebrating with the provocative theme 'Intentional Distortions' which is now more relevant than ever. Over 150 participating Bay Area and West Coast design firms inspire with original ideas and creative solutions to help businesses survive in a post-pandemic world.
Highlights include talks, webinars, web-conferences, and virtual tours with leading designers in multi-disciplines, from user experience, interactive design, and branding, to architecture, interior design, and fashion.
"The challenges of the pandemic affords us an opportunity to reimagine how we celebrate design at a time of uncertainty and unprecedented restrictions," said SFDW Executive Director Dawn Zidonis. "We as designers will rise to the challenge by transitioning our design festival to a virtual experience, giving access internationally to powerful ideas shaping the future, born in our region. San Francisco Design Week is a call to action to work together using design to solve global issues."
