Cincinnati, OH Blog

A few photos from our 2020 kickoff social at Market Wines! Thank you to everyone who ventured out on a chilly Monday night to the warm & wonderful Market Wines, and to Kelly Boeder and Nova Polymers for sponsoring our food & drinks. Congratulations to those who went home with new design books from our raffle: Keegan Riley (Paula Scher's Maps), Carlie Simoncelli (Pantone Colors), and Lauren Moeller (Michael Bierut's Now You See It and Other Essays on Design).










We're kicking off 2020 with a Chapter Social sponsored by our friends at Nova Polymers! Join us at Market Wines (at the west end of Findlay Market) on Monday, Feb. 10th. All attendees will be entered to win some great design giveaways! No charge for admission, but please RSVP via Eventbrite to let us know we'll be seeing your shining face.


BLINK, Cincinnati's internationally renowned light, art, and music festival, is less than two weeks away! The experience begins with the Future City Spectacular Parade, stepping off from 8th & Vine at sundown on Thursday, Oct. 10.

Want to get involved?

SEGD Cincinnati needs volunteers to help staff THINK, a series of talks by BLINK artists, from 3-4:30 on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in the Findlay Market Zone. You will receive a BLINK T-shirt, and get to listen in on some great artist presentations! As a volunteer, you will help introduce the speakers and welcome guests to the event. You do not need to be available all three days - any and all time is appreciated. Please email [email protected] if you'd like to help.

Want some low pressure, constructive feedback on your portfolio from designers and educators? SEGD Cincinnati Chapter is hosting a workshop for design students with an interest in experiential graphic design at the Center for Architecture & Design on Wednesday, September 18th. The hosts will share their background, favorite projects, and what they look for in portfolios before breaking into roundtables for you to share your work. "In progress" materials totally welcome (bring a laptop if your portfolio is online). Snacks, coffee, and beverages will be provided. We can only offer 15 spots, so reserve your free ticket today!

If the event is sold out but you'd still like to participate, please e-mail [email protected].

Join us for an informal gathering at the Cincinnati Center for Architecture + Design to share experiences from the 2019 SEGD Conference in Austin! Free - just let us know via Eventbrite if you'll be attending so we can make sure we have drinks and snacks for all!
