As a creative, you probably didn't go to business school. Of course, there's enough material on improving your negotiation skills that you could make a career out of studying just that. But you've got a great opportunity right now. What do you need to know—right now?
October 27—28, New York will be filled with recognized leaders of the digital experiential graphic design world at SEGD's upcoming Xlab conference.

In a few months in Philadelphia, a new Warby Parker store will open in a space formerly occupied by the Le Bec-Fin. This restaurant, led by Chef Georges Perrier, was once widely considered one of the best in the world, but it famously refused to change with the times—and paid the price. With Warby Parker’s move into physical spaces, I’d argue the brand is doing the opposite.
It's the day after conference and there is a steady flow of people from the taxi stand outside the Westin Seattle. We're all heading home. Some look a little worn out, but it does not appear that we took any casualties, despite some really good stories. Way to throw a family party, SEGD clan!
And of course while there is always room for improvement (we're designers after all!), we heard mostly very positive feedback about this event. Everything from best ever to can we do it in Seattle every year?
In our highly competitive industry, do you find yourself banging your head against a wall trying to find ways to be innovative, fresh, or AMAZING on certain days? I imagine some of us do.
Where do you go when your "design thinking" stops thinking? It happens to us all —regardless of our disciplines I believe.

Unicell wanted to show off their revolutionary new electric delivery vehicle to some of the biggest players at Discovery, Canada’s Premier Innovation Showcase. WSD helped rebrand the effort by changing the name and tagline, and creating a new graphic look for the vehicle and support materials as well.
The project comprises more than 30 LED installations in 21 different formats and nearly 30 high-res projectors totaling over 80,000,000 pixels. The project represents a major challenge for content production, made even more difficult by the fact that the majority of installations are located outside.

Eduardo Kobra is attempting to set the world record for the largest mural created by a single person. Coinciding with Rio’s 2016 olympic games, the Brazilian street artist has painted a mural on a vast 190-meter-long wall in the city’s formerly run-down port area. Measuring an area of almost 3,000 square meters, the work illustrates five faces from five continents — a theme which responds to the olympic rings.
Roadliners is a film about inspiration and craft, and the uncelebrated lettering artists of the road.
