SEGD Members and distinguished guests, please join us for an informal luncheon with SEGD CEO, Clive Roux. Since 2012, Clive has been responsible for running SEGD and collaborating with the SEGD Board of Directors to ensure the organization is producing the best value for the profession. Clive Roux brings significant experience in building and running global multi-disciplinary creative and business groups. Prior to serving as IDSA's CEO from 2009 to 2012, he spent 15 years leading creative units for Philips Design, the Design Division of Royal Philips Electronics, The Netherlands. During his time there he spent two years in the Netherlands, seven in Hong Kong, and six in Atlanta, Georgia, leading the New Business Development and Design Research activities of Philips Design in the USA, consulting to Fortune 500 companies such as Coca-Cola, Procter & Gamble, Microsoft, and GM.

Clive will travel to Cincinnati on Thursday, November 10 to have an open dialogue about the present focus of SEGD and what the organization is looking forward to in the future. This is an exciting opportunity to share our experiences in the Experiential Graphic Design community regionally, nationally, and internationally, and to hear directly from leadership in our organization. On Friday, November 11, Clive will sit on the distinguished jury of design thought leaders and eminent practitioners for the Cincinnati Design Awards. (More on that here)

On February 4, Cincinnati's SEGD members and friends had a great time mingling, catching up on the latest news from SEGD and learning about digital wayfinding and display technologies at our recent chapter event. Held at Taft's Ale House in the historic Over the Rhine neighborhood, this impressive, complete renovation of an 1850s church pays tribute to our local born, 27th President of the United States, William Howard Taft. Folks who stuck around to the very end of the event were led on a behind the scenes tour of the brewery and Ale House. Approximately 40 people were in attendance, with lots of new faces in an energizing mix of students, design professionals and industry professionals. All event guests were treated to drinks, appetizers, free SEGD tote bags, copies of the latest eg Magazine and participated in a raffle give-away for design related books.

Please allow us to extend a large THANK YOU to our event sponsor, Harmon Sign Company for supporting the cost of this event and for joining us in the fun.

Thanks are also in order for our industry partners, 22Miles Digital Signage and Wayfinding and Zebra for displaying their technology and talking to our members about the possibilities in digital wayfinding and display technologies.

Thank you to Pat Matson Knapp with SEGD for providing our chapter with all give-away items and design books.
