About InsideOut SF

Through the eyes of some of the most influential San Francisco Bay Area and international creative individuals, InsideOut SF is a curated exhibit of original posters highlighting their personal impressions of San Francisco.

To celebrate this fantastic city, AIGA SF is curating an exhibit of Bay Area-based designers, photographers and illustrators to create a unique poster that they think truly represents the city (Inside) and then we are asking some of the most influential designers, photographers and illustrators, from around the world to do the same (Outside).

Will an insider’s perspective on San Francisco be the same as an outsider’s perspective?

InsideOut SF Fall Gala is a public event benefiting the San Francisco chapter of AIGA, and all funds raised will go towards scholarships, educational programming and community events, such as SF Design Week, throughout the upcoming year.
