San Francisco Design Week

Good news for anyone on the best (ahem, I mean West) Coast next week... Mayor Gavin Newsom, has declared June 11-17 Design Week in San Francisco. In an effort to promote design and the San Francisco design community, AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Arts) will be sponsoring a full week of events including exhibits, lectures, receptions, short films and more! Sign up now for an event that interests you.

As a designer, I'm thrilled to see the city come together to promote and encourage the design community. I strongly believe that design can make a difference and this is the perfect example of a community taking notice and encouraging our efforts. Fortunately, endeavors are being made all over the world to promote the impact of design on business and society. If you are aware of other cities, communities, or individuals sharing in this effort please share your thoughts and comments with us.
