SEGD Conference Celebrates Experiential Design in the Magic City
Washington—Convening in Miami, June 8–10, the 2017 SEGD Conference Experience Miami is poised to give participants a taste of local design culture, from the Miami Beach Art Deco Tour, to combatting sea level rise and the coral reef restoration effort.
Alongside international design legends like Lance Wyman, leaders from local organizations including the University of Miami, CityBIOM, Gensler, CEEK VR, Florida International University, MONAD Studio, Coral Morphologic and New World Symphony will contribute to the conference, Miami-style.
The 2017 SEGD Conference Experience Miami will be headquartered at the Loews Miami Beach. This three-day event will focus on inspiration and education, with a potent and fun combination of hands-on workshops and charrettes, design tours, summits, networking socials, thought leadership sessions and even an expo floor.
This annual SEGD gathering is the only conference specifically created for the experiential graphic design community—experiential and environmental graphic designers, architects, landscape architects, interaction designers, branding and strategy experts, technology integrators, fabricators, makers and clients involved in the design of place and experience. In Miami, the conference will explore a range of engaging topics from tech entrepreneurship, design thinking and shaping urban landscapes, to giving back to the community and preserving the natural world.
“The SEGD Conference is where the experiential graphic design community comes together to envision the future, share best practices and find inspiration. We are thrilled to bring the 2017 SEGD Conference back to Miami, which is truly an international destination for design, architecture, innovation and culture,” remarks Clive Roux, CEO of SEGD, “Miami embodies the qualities we look for in a host city, with so many new projects and an urban renewal program of artful examples of integrated placemaking and communication design.”
Prior to the conference on June 7, Florida International University will host the annual SEGD Academic & Research Summit, where design educators, researchers, students and practitioners will gather to hear presentations from original peer-reviewed design and user research related to experiential graphic design.
On June 10, the SEGD community will send-off the conference, celebrating excellence in experiential graphic design by saluting the winners of the 2017 SEGD Global Design Awards.
