SF Design Week offers workshops, open studios, tours, workshops and more to celebrate design
Charles Eames defined design as "a plan for arranging elements in such a way as best to accomplish a particular purpose." If that is so, then the annual SF Design Week is the ultimate example of design in action: the dynamic arrangement of workshops, parties, open studios, and designers for the purpose of celebrating and furthering the enormous impact of design in our everyday lives. From mobile devices to typefaces to architecture, from pixels to print, San Francisco is a mecca of design innovation. Peruse a full week's worth of events — highlights include the Pixels of Fury live design competition and a studio tour crawl — and start thinking big by starting small.
