Join SEGD Atlanta for fun, food and fellowship at our 2016 Open House at Jones Worley Design to learn about the exciting initiatives planned for our organization this year!

Reconnect with old friends and meet our newest members while enjoying light hors d’oeuvres and libations. Let’s share ideas for new events this year that will get our hearts pumping and rekindle our passion for EGD!

Jones Worley continues to celebrate 25 years of business in 2016 and invites the SEGD Atlanta family to our circa 1910 design studio in Midtown Atlanta to learn about the firm’s EGD work. This will be an event you do not want to miss!

Free parking is available on Piedmont Avenue in front of the building or behind the building in the alley between 3rd and 4th streets.

This Event is free and open to all SEGD members, interested professionals and students.

NanoLumens AIA Continuing Education Course: Large Format Indoor Display Technologies

Learning Objectives

I. Participants will understand the purpose and goals associated with the addition of large-format indoor display technology to a space.Our instructor will walk through the ROI of adding large format indoor display technology to a space, discussing how and why adding a display increases the revenue generated by a given space and the interest in such a space (i.e. adding ad revenue and marketing options for shows in a convention center could cause a large tradeshow to select that center over others) II. Participants will be able to identify and understand various technologies used for indoor display technology applications.Our instructor will discuss the various technologies available for large-format indoor displays, walking through how each works and how they are applied to a space, as well as how they are distinguished from one another. III. Participants will be able to identify the best-suited technology for an indoor display application in hypothetical and real-world scenarios.After the various technologies are understood, our instructor will walk participants through various scenarios of applications to discuss how each technology behaves in situ. Situational factors, such as the presence of ambient light, heat and noise restrictions, and limited spacing will be explored. IV. Participants will understand the pros and cons of applicable technologies for indoor display applications.The instructor will identify the perks and drawbacks associated with each technology and where there might be pitfalls or needs in application scenarios that could eliminate or enhance the viability of a given technology. OVERALL GOAL: By the end of our course, participants will be able to look at a potential architecture project, identify how signage could enhance the situation, and to understand which available technology would be best suited to the project due to budget, environment, and energy constrictions.

FORM IT-SHAPE IT-LIGHT IT

The most sophisticated sign fabricators and designers choose acrylic as the substrate of choice due to its endless decoration possibilities and overall durability. Whether incorporating three-dimensional elements for ADA & wayfinding or backlit illuminated signage this type of plastic is a product selected among the top designers in this field.

With the advent of LED’s as a preferred light source for illuminated signage & graphics this makes way for a more creative approach in the field of design. Both l.e.d. & advances in acrylic have dramatically effected sign design. Lower profile cabinets, letters and flush mounted illuminated wayfinding are just a few signage elements that have improved with the advance in these signage materials.

We shall be exploring the latest technologies in both of these materials and how they interact giving a new approach in designing signage for the future.

ACRYLIC:  A clearer approach in proper specification:

  • Quick intro to acrylics & how we use it in day to day applications for our industry.
  • Usages for the sign & graphics industry; ADA, Backlighting, Display, interior/exterior directional
  • Signage-LD light scattering technology, diffusers, acrylics relation to general purpose & specialty lighting/lighting design
  • Clear acrylic, colored acrylic, textures
  • Direct to print OptixDA acrylic (standard/non-glare). Advanced print technology & how it effects these materials
  • Applications “outside the acrylic box” for retail, hospitality. corporate interiors

LEDs:  what & when to use:

  • Quick intro/advancements in led technology (lenses, chip technology, kelvin temperature, size)
  • General understanding of led: pros/cons when to use & what
  • Led used for backlighting applications (signage& graphics, display, fixture)
  • Architectural Lighting (cove lighting, border tubing, general purpose lighting)

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A and social hour, drinks and food will be provided. Kevin will have samples of various acrylics(color, clear, direct to print acrylics, acrylic mirror, textured) along with samples of LEDs for architectural lighting, backlighting, display/lightbox
