A Light and Sound Experience: Klip Collective

SEGD Boston is excited to continue our virtual programming with a new and unique opportunity to engage with speakers from outside of the Boston Area. Join us for an evening of enchantment, inspiration, and exploration of immersive environments, projection mapping, and virtual reality, with the creative director, and founder of Klip Collective, Ricardo Rivera.

With this new event format we have the opportunity to connect with Ric and learn about his past, as a rave VJ and documentary editor, and his experience as a filmmaker and his work at the Sundance Film Festival. Ric is a true pioneer of video projection mapping, earning him a United States patent for his technological breakthroughs in the medium.

Founded in 2003, Klip Collective is a studio of collaborators including animators, programmers, lighting designers, sound designers, composers and fabricators. The Klip team produces large-scale, immersive installation art throughout the US.

Their experience has afforded Klip the opportunity to partner with clients such as Target, Adidas, Gillette, Red Bull, The Central Park Conservancy, and BalletX. Further opportunities include installations using the natural environment as their canvas. Using light and sound, the Klip team helped Longwood Gardens (Kennett Square, PA) twice to come alive in a whole new way with their Nightscape installation, and followed up these success stories with Infinity Crystal and Desert Chorale part of the Electric Desert installation at the Desert Botanical Garden (Phoenix, AZ).

Let’s give a warm Boston Chapter welcome to our friends from Philadelphia, with this unique opportunity to learn, engage, and be inspired by Ric and Klip’s work in this amazing field of immersive art.

The New York Chapter invites you to join us as we continue the Living Room Lecture Series with our next speakers: Chris Calori and David Vanden-Eynden of Entro/CVEDesign.

 
Join from the comfort of your home on Thursday May 28, 2020 at 12:30pm for a dynamic, interactive session hosted by two of the most influential figures in our industry.
 
As founding partners of CVEDesign, David and Chris have spent their careers helping to build, promote, and refine the field of EGD. David is a Fellow of the Society for Environmental Graphic Design (SEGD) and a member of the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA). His work has been honored by the SEGD, AIA, IDSA, the AIGA, and the City of New York, and has been published in numerous national and international books and periodicals. 
 
Chris is a Fellow of the Society for Environmental Graphic Design (SEGD), a Professional Affiliate of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), New York Chapter, and a longtime member of the AIGA. Her work has received awards from the SEGD, AIA, IDSA, AIGA, and the City of New York, and has been featured in national and international books and periodicals. 
 
They literally wrote the book on EGD as the authors of Signage and Wayfinding Design, the acclaimed  book that is found on the shelves of many design professionals and which has become a staple of numerous university EGD curriculums. Committed design thinkers and educators, Chris and David have taught and lectured on design at professional conferences and notable universities. Together, they share life, love, and design, and continue to contribute so much to the industry we all care so much about.
 
Our gathering on the 28th will begin with a wonderful visual presentation and be followed by a live interview as well as an open forum Q&A session. Aside from being informative and enjoyable, this will, of course, be another opportunity to join with our fellow chapter members in Boston, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC during this - our second - virtual regional chapter event.

Rich Burns, served as our third president, as a longtime member of the board of and in 1987 along with Jim Glass, was selected as one of the Society’s first Fellows. His firm, the GNU Group was an offshoot of his position as an in-house graphics group within the landscape architectural firm, the SWA Group. The firm’s early entry into the world of signage came about when SWA was asked to design the sign program for a new master planned community. Recognizing that he knew precious little about sign program design and invited by his old classmate, John Berry to attend the first ad-hoc meeting of what would become SEGD, he was compelled to attend. The rest as they say is history, which Rich shared in this first of our virtual meetings.

 

SEGD Boston is excited to kick off a new era of programming for our chapter and SEGD overall with The SEGD Fellows Northeast Regional: Living Room Lecture Series beginning with one of the key individuals responsible for the creation of our organization!

Join us from the comfort of your own living room, Thursday April 30, 2020 at 6:30pm for the start of this informative series with our first speaker Rich Burns, Co-Founder of SEGD and the first SEGD Fellow. 

Have you ever wondered how SEGD was founded? What was the initial plan? What were the future goals for this as once fledgling organization? Is SEGD living up to those dreams, or are we surpassing them? What it was like to foster a new professional organization while running a fledgling EGD practice? These questions and more will be answered during this intimate virtual discussion.

Rich will join us live from the West Coast as we watch his recent SEGD Talk from the Branded Environments Conference. He will share stories from SEGD’s history including how things ramped up for the organization right here in Harvard Square! We will wrap up with a live Q&A session.

On November 14th SEGD Boston enjoyed a great event in center of the world's “Most innovative square mile” right here in Kendall Square. The goal of the event was to discuss community development and neighborhood placemaking through wayfinding, architectural elements and environmental graphics. 


Alana Olsen Westwater from the Kendall Square Association discussed the framework of how community stakeholders join forces to celebrate a neighborhood's uniqueness through cultural events, learning opportunities and design.

Anthony Clayton, of Bluebird Graphic Solutions, discussed several recent projects that have begun to enhance wayfinding and introduce landmarks in Kendall Square. He emphasized the important of creativity in fabrication, engineering and construction when introducing new elements into existing conditions. 

Eric Koslow, of Direct Embed, shared large format solutions relative to murals, screens etc. that not only provide decorative features in unexpected places, but also provide the durability and longetvity required in exterior public settings.
