The charm and beauty of San Francisco have inspired countless artists and designers and earned it acclaim as the best and happiest city in America, not to mention the most romantic. (We know we love it.) To celebrate the city, AIGA San Francisco has curated InsideOut SF, an exhibition and silent auction of original poster designs that highlight personal impressions of the city. The show features new posters by Bay Area-based designers, photographers and illustrators (the “Inside” perspective), as well as some of the most influential creatives from around the world (the “Out”). Pentagram’s Natasha Jen, Eddie Opara, John Rushworth, Paula Scher and Marina Willer have all contributed designs for the event. (Check out the full list of contributors here.)
