The Colorado Court of Appeals Law Library is excited to host an after-hours tour of select legal materials for members of AIGA Colorado & SEGD.

They will display, discuss, and take questions about an array of rare and otherwise significant publications circa. 1580 to the present. This array will be displayed not only chronologically, but also by publication type: to wit, old books, pocket books, scrap books, work books, circulars, directories, ephemera, flyers, letters, manuscripts, maps, newspapers, pamphlets, and other surviving print, some hand-written. The publications will represent federal, state, territorial, and local jurisdictions. Some will be pretty, some will be odd, others will be ugly; all will be fascinating when placed into historical perspective. In each instance, we will comment on one or more of the following: paper, binding, font, language, typeset, size, intended use, and condition.

As an added value for this event, the Clerk of the Court will be happy to lead a tour of the art and finishes of the building to anybody that wants to participate, prior to the rare book salon. Those who are interested need to be in the building lobby at 4:45pm sharp to go through security.

To join the fun, please enter on the 14th Avenue side of our building (between Lincoln and Broadway). And for maximum enjoyment, please be prompt.

Venue:

The closest parking is the on-street meters along Lincoln and Broadway. There is an outdoor surface lot on 13th and Logan just up the hill from our building, the Ralph L. Carr Judicial Courthouse. And, in the case of inclement weather, or a desire to park under cover for any reason, we recommend the Art Museum garage off 12th Avenue.

Details:

Tour of the Ralph Carr Judicial Center: 4:45 pm - 5:45 pm

SEGD Denver's Digital by Design Panel Discussion

SEGD Denver’s Digital by Design event was a huge success and featured an expert panel of professionals who work in the fields of environmental and experiential graphic design. The event centered on best practices for implementing digital signage programs and featured speakers who’s expertise ranged from design to fabrication to providing content. Marty Gregg, principal of ArtHouse Design joined Jim Zazenski, president of Boyd Sign Systems and David Levin, president and CEO of Four Winds Interactive, each speaking to their unique point of view and associated best practices. SEGD Denver chapter chair Zach Kotel emceed the event and led the panel discussion, as well as the audience question and answer period.

The panel discussed how important it is to consider the holistic, functional and aesthetic goals of a project through collaboration to ensure that every discipline involved in implementing a digital signage program is effective in providing creative solutions. The speakers shared case studies including Denver's 14th Street Redevelopment, Denver's 16th Street Mall Interactive Kiosks, One World Trade Center and the Oculus in New York City and work for Dallas Fort Worth International Airport. Through careful consideration of branding, signage design, wayfinding and content management, these projects were able to seamlessly and elegantly incorporate digital signage into the overall package for maximum impact.
