The 14th Annual SAN FRANCISCO DESIGN WEEK, which annually attracts 60,000 visitors from around the world, is returning this year as the first regional virtual design festival. The all-online program kicks off June 15-25, celebrating with the provocative theme “Intentional Distortions” which is now more relevant than ever. Highlights include talks, webinars, web-conferences, and virtual tours with leading designers in multi-disciplines from user experience, interactive design, VR experiences and virtual art, to branding, architecture, interior design and fashion.

New this year is the first annual Product Showcase, highlighting innovative products, including startups. The 2020 Design Awards are juried by top industry professionals, including the best-selling design/interiors book author and magazine editor Diane Dorrans Saeks; architect Takashi Yanai, FAIA; interior designer Catherine Kwong; and Google Product Design Lead Irina Blok.
"The challenges of the pandemic affords us an opportunity to re-imagine how we celebrate design at a time of uncertainty and unprecedented restrictions,” says 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."
