SEGD Denver's Speaker Series: Jan Lorenc

SEGD Denver recently hosted SEGD 2017 Fellow Jan Lorenc at the Denver Art Museum to present his work and speak about his years of experience leading the experiential graphic design field. Approximately 40 people attended the event where Jan explained his fascinating professional development trajectory, work experience and key projects around the globe. 

The inspiring presentation touched on the multi and cross-discipline world of experiential graphic design and the collaboration and thought necessary to complete successful placemaking projects for all different kinds of clients. The event was capped off with a raffle of two signed copies of Jan's book What is Exhibition Design, the cherry on top of a fun and informative evening.

This event was a success thanks in part to our co-sponsors, Denver's other professional organizations for design, AIGA Colorado, ASLA Colorado, IDSA Rocky Mountain Chapter, Denver Does Design, WiD Colorado and others.

Thank you to our sponsors PAM Wayfinding and Boyd Sign Systems for their support of this event and our chapter.

The Colorado Law Library hosts SEGD Denver and AIGA Colorado for a Rare Book Salon

This event was hosted by SEGD Denver and AIGA Colorado at the Ralph L. Carr Judicial Building in Downtown Denver, home to the Colorado Supreme Court, the Colorado Court of Appeals and a number of other judicial bodies. This building also houses the Colorado Supreme Court library which holds a large collection of very rare, old and unique books and publications. The building is also architecturally significant for its collection of art, artifacts and design. The building was designed with a towering atrium and glass dome that looks directly at the Colorado State Capitol, a deliberate juxtaposition highlighting the concept of checks and balances within the 3 branches of Colorado’s government, the judiciary, the legislature and the executive branch. This event included a tour of the building, as well as a special guided visit to the Law Library, where librarians, historians and other judicial staff guided the attendees through some of the rarest books in the collection.

ArtHouse Design generously offered to sponsored this event and Polly Brock, the Clerk of the Court of Appeals helped set this up, as her husband, Marty Gregg, is the principal of ArtHouse. 

The Colorado Court of Appeals Law Librarian spoke occasionally throughout the hour and a half tour and Rare Book Salon highlighting major stories and providing context for the most influential law books. A general interest in history and typography created an exciting atmosphere within the Law Library. Being able to touch and take pictures of the books really provided a memorable experience for each guest. After learning from the Law Librarian about some of the books on the tables, each person had the opportunity to flip through the books and really appreciate each detail of the typography, placement, and content. Everyone left that evening happy with new knowledge about Colorado history within our Law Library.

 

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.

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.
