In the time of COVID-19, we've had to make some adjustments to how our events take place, taking them online to deliver the same quality content and connectedness that SEGD and SEGD Denver are known for. Luckily, SEGD Fellow and former SEGD President Wayne Hunt graciously agreed to be our guinea pig for our first ever virtual event and boy was it a success. With over 50 participants from all over the country, we were able to engage in a dynamic conversation about design, art, teaching and experiential graphic design. We can't wait for our next virtual event - stay tuned!

Speed Networking: Connections and Fun

The Denver chapter of SEGD recently hosted a fun speed networking event with students from Denver's Auraria Higher Education Campus and its three universities; MSU Denver, CU Denver and Community College of Denver.

With professionals from ArtHouse Design, Interior Architects, Boyd Sign Systems, Archetype, Page/, Nine Dot Arts and more, the students were able to ask their burning questions in five minute bursts. Everyone had a blast looking at the students' portfolios, discussing different types of design careers and getting to know each other.

After the networking portion of the event, everyone continued their conversations in the Tivoli Brewery, downstairs in the Tivoli Student Union Building, a historic brewery at the center of the campus.

Ask Us Anything: Design Student + Professional Speed Networking

As part of the Society for Experiential Graphic Design's efforts to be a resource to academics, universities and design students, SEGD Denver is hosting a speed-networking event where university design students are invited to come and ask professionals anything they want about the world of design and the evolving fields of environmental and experiential graphic design. 

Questions can vary across a wide range of topics with everything from how to secure a job or internship after graduation to how people dress in different studio and office environments. 

Attendees will be given prompt cards with ideas for conversation starters and will be given 3-5 minutes with each professional to meet, ask questions and network. Several professional participants have expressed their excitement at meeting potential prospects for internships and jobs.

We need professionals and students to sign up to make this work!

We would like to extend a huge thank you to our event sponsor Metropolitan State University of Denver and the Future Leaders of Design student organization.

We would also like to thank our chapter sponsor Archetype for extending their commitment to SEGD Denver in 2020 and for making events like this possible all year.

Tryba Architects Leads SEGD Denver on Tour of History Colorado Museum

We had a blast at our last event of 2019 and are gearing up for some amazing experiences in 2020. Our tour of History Colorado and the exhibit Zoom In: The Centennial State in 100 Objects lead by Tryba Architects was fascinating. Our chapter was fortunate enough to get a peek at the collections storage, as well as hear about the design of the building, how objects are collected, stored and archived and how that all translated into the exhibit. It was amazing to see 13,000 years of human history in what is now considered Colorado represented in 100 objects.

Stay tuned for our upcoming student-focused event!
