An evening with multi disciplinarian and global visionary-Jan Lorenc
Set in the inspiring Boston Society of Architects building, Jan Lorenc (founder of Lorenc+Yoo Design) led a group of 30 creatives, through an environmental graphic design journey traversing a multitude of styles, design disciplines, global clients, cultures and resources. As a master story teller, Jan was able to thoughtfully and succinctly navigate his 40 year repertoire in an engaging hour-long showcase. Followed by a brief question and answer session, the audience got a wonderful glimpse into his ability to cohesively synthesize a design narrative that is true to the biography of the project and the business of this industry.

The energy of the space, the enthused minds, and not to mention the delectable hor d’oeuvres, made for a lovely, intimate and insightful evening, hosted by SEGD Boston.

Please join SEGD Boston in the Harbor Room at the Boston Society of Architects, for an evening with Jan Lorenc, founder of Lorenc + Yoo Design. Jan Lorenc will present his insight after more than 40 years in the field.

Jan Lorenc established Lorenc+Yoo Design in 1978 in Chicago. Previously, he designed the logo and signage guidelines for Target  Stores, which are used to this day. The company initially undertook industrial design projects, and later began work on large scale signage programs. In the mid-1990s, the firm moved into exhibits, interiors, and architecture. The  firm has worked in Korea, UAE, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, India, and Japan. Currently, half of their work is in China where it creates the vision and design for brand new towns.

Jan Lorenc was made a fellow of SEGD in 2017.

The BSA is hosting a fundraiser Architecture Trivia Night following this event from 7:00-9:00 pm. There will be pizza and beer/wine for $25. All proceeds will support the BSA Foundation and its mission to build a better Boston.

NEON: Past, Present and Future

 

Please join SEGD Boston at this fun event featuring the exhibition GLOW - hosted by our friends at Arrowstreet!

 

A unique glow emerged on the American landscape in 1923 with the unveiling of the first neon signs and quickly spread across the country as sign manufacturers and popular culture embraced the new phenomenon. However, starting in the 1970s that glow began to fade as other signage medium took its place. That trend continues today as businesses are more likely to favor LED screens and LED substitutes in place of neon, but the artform is making a comeback as designers are drawn to the distinct glow only neon can provide.

Currently, Boston is the home of its own neon resurgence as eight antique neon signs light up the Rose Kennedy Greenway in the exhibition GLOW.

In celebration of this exhibit and all things neon, Arrowstreet is hosting Neon: Past, Present, and Future. The evening will feature presentations by Dave Waller (Owner of Brickyard VFX and collector of over 50 neon signs including those featured in GLOW), Lucas Cowan (Public Art Curator for the Rose Kennedy Greenway), and Mike Vickers (Project Executive for Design Communications, Ltd. (DCL), and former neon shop owner). Together they will discuss the history of neon signage, the design and installation of GLOW, the state of neon in the industry today and where it is headed in the future, and provide tips for designers and architects on how to design with neon. A visit to GLOW will follow the presentations.

Click here to RSVP early as seating is limited.
