SEGD Chicago Chapter

Chicago, IL Blog

The SEGD Chicago chapter invites you to join us for an evening out at Pinstripes Bistro in Streeterville.

Moss Environments is generously hosting the first hour at the bar, so make sure to arrive at 7pm! Light appetizers will be provided, sponsored by Selbert Perkins Design and Media Objectives at VDTA.

And there will be 2 hours of free bocce ball, sponsored by Brassell Design Consultants!  No special shoes or knowledge required - just show up and play.

Pinstripes is just a 5 minute walk from the SEGD Conference Sheraton Hotel. We have a private indoor/outdoor space booked for our group - ask for the SEGD event when you arrive.

A full menu is available for purchase, and after the first hour there is a cash bar.

There is no cost to attend, but please RSVP

Join us for a Behind-the-Scenes tour of the largest science museum in the Western Hemisphere!  SEGD Chicago is organizing a guided tour of this beloved Chicago institution led by John Beckman, Director of Exhibit Design and Development, and Angela Williams, Senior Design Manager.  We will visit exhibits and be treated to a presentation of the MSI design experience. 

Ticket price includes the guided tour and presentation as well as a reception of a light buffet and beer/wine.

Invite your colleagues, friends, and family!  All are welcome to this one-of-a-kind event.

Join us for the first SEGD Chicago Breakfast Roundtable, offering EGD professionals an opportunity to engage in conversation on challenges, opportunities and best practices in our industry.

This month's topic:

“Yikes WHO did that?” Clarity, Conviction and CCO’s - (Critical Change Orders that is).

Sharon Brooks of South Water Signs (An experienced SEGD and industry partner with a BFA in Graphic Design) will share her expertise on the questions we should be asking during the project process: What do the specs say? Re-submit the submittals? And you’re delivering, when?

Hosted at the offices of Valerio Dewalt Train Associates, located in the historic Boyce Building in the vibrant River North neighborhood.

Come for breakfast, coffee, and a great learning opportunity!
