About San Francisco Design Week

The Future Started Here:

Launched in 2006, San Francisco Design Week (SFDW) is an essential week-long regional festival that showcases the unique intersection of ideas, design, business & entrepreneurism that makes the Bay Area the birthplace of the future.

Now a global phenomenon, San Francisco’s international success is born from a historically free-spirited entrepreneurialism, coupled with the imaginative vision of contemporary design and state-of-the-art technology. Pioneers of new ways of looking at the world, nimble Bay Area start-ups are now among the world’s most influential design-led companies, producing products, services and experiences that profoundly influence the daily lives of billions of people globally.

Through approximately 75 events, SFDW celebrates this spirit of newness by providing attendees unique access to conversations and virtual tours with the designers who are shaping the future — from architecture to fashion, product design to digital services, and everything in between.

SFDW is produced by nonprofit organization Design Bay Area in partnership with IDSA, Center for Architecture+DesignAIASFFAMASEGDSDNIXDA, local consulates, design universities, neighborhood associations and museums.
