    San Francisco Visual Communications Students Design and Install Booth for DIFFA SF Fundraiser

    Last Wednesday, students in the Visual Communications Design Installation class installed a photo booth they designed for Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS (DIFFA) SF and their annual fundraising event. The evening's theme was SHINE, and based on the popularity of photo booths at events, the students "focused on creating a space that would encourage people to take selfies and SHINE. They encouraged people to share their images on social media to spread the word about the event and the great cause," according to Visual Communications Department Coordinator Lisa Hoffman.
