IxDA SF is the San Francisco chapter of the global Interaction Design Association (IxDA). Serving over 5,000 members from around the Bay Area, and a broader community of over 10,000 designers, IxDA SF hosts a wide range of design-focused and social events throughout the year.
We partner with great companies to host talks and activities that move interaction design forward and enable practitioners to advance skills, while also providing a platform for members to add their voices to the larger conversation about design practice. Above all, we seek to curate the sharing of ideas, perspectives, and inspiration that help make us all better and more aware thinkers and designers.

Once you sign up, you are considered a member (we charge no membership fee - ever), and will get access to our regular newsletter as well as event discounts, special announcements, etc.
You can also find us on Facebook, Twitter, Medium, IxDA's global slack (look for the #san-francisco channel), and email us to be invited to our local IxDA-SF Slack workspace. Occasionally, we wander out to LinkedIn, Flickr, and Instagram, too.
In honor or International Women’s Day, here is a small selection out of so many outstanding woman designers — established and emerging leaders of our field — from San Francisco and the Bay Area. Let’s recognize and celebrate them for all their contributions to our craft, profession, and community!
