The first Women in Industrial Design Show, sponsored by WID of IDSA, is coming to the Bay Area in June 2014 as part of San Francisco Design Week.
For one night only, the show will feature 15 designers in two categories: Up+Coming and Professionals. The Work can be conceptual, in full production, or anything in between. WID’s hope is to showcase a wide scope of industrial design work by women in various stages of their careers. It’s a great opportunity to showcase your work and meet your peers during the excitement of SF Design Week.
