The “Design Worlds” of San Francisco converged on Jaspers for a sold-out SF Design Week opening party hosted by AIGA San Francisco, Puccini Group, Whole Foods and 7X7 Magazine. Guests enjoyed Campari cocktails and appetizers, live chalkboard art, greeting from 7X7 Magazine Editor Chloé Harris Frankeny and a presentation by the team that designed Jaspers.
AIGA San Francisco is partnered all week with AIA, IDSA, SEGD, RDI, SFFAMA, and IXDA for an amazing line-up of events and a fantastic opportunity to meet the people and groups who are literally designing San Francisco.
Since 2006, AIGA San Francisco has organized San Francisco Design Week as a way to reach out to a diverse community of over 20,000 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.
