Message from the Society for Environmental Graphic Design

“Did you know January is International Wayfinding Month? It’s official, and to mark the month-long recognition, SEGD has scheduled three teleconferences focused on new opportunities in wayfinding“:

January 20, 1 p.m.
The Mobile Web

Environmental graphic designers are incorporating mobile web and media applications in projects ranging from urban wayfinding systems to museums and cultural institutions. This course will focus on factors such as pricing, planning, design, and managing implementation.

Speakers: Thomas McLaughlin, Winfield & Co.; John Bosio, Merje; Linda Perry-Lube, American Museum of Natural History

January 25, 1 p.m.
Landmarks and Public Art

Architectural landmarks, public art, and interpretive art are playing a growing role in wayfinding and identity projects. This teleconference will focus on how clients are incorporating these elements into their planning processes and how designers can propose them as part of larger projects.

January 27, 1 p.m.
Modern Architecture Integration

In the 21st century, aggressively modern buildings by star architects have become the leading projects in cities around the world. These buildings place a new set of demands on environmental graphic designers. This course will cover design approaches, collaborative methods, and visualization tools designers are using to work with the world’s foremost modernists.

Speakers: Debra Nichols, Debra Nichols Design; Ken Carbone, Carbone Smolan Agency
