Inclusive Design is a holistic process that involves consideration of various facets of human diversity including age, gender, race, religion, culture, and experience. This process respects and acknowledges that within any given population there is a wide spectrum of individual abilities, needs, and aspirations.

Presented by SEGD’s Los Angeles Chapter, Beth Ziebarth, Director, Access Smithsonian, will discuss strategies employed by the office and the Institution to design accessible and inclusive exhibitions and programs. The goal is to provide visitors with effortless access to programs, collections, and facilities.

Educators Angela Iarocci, Professor, Sheridan College, and Neeta Verma, Associate Professor, University of Notre Dame, who serve on SEGD’s Academic Task Force, will moderate a short Q+A following the presentation.


This SEGDVoices session will be held at Tuesday September 29th at 3:30 pm Eastern / 12:30 pm Pacific time

Jan Lorenc, acclaimed Polish-American designer, SEGD Fellow and author is coming to Los Angeles to share his life story and design philosophy after more than 40 years in the creative field.

Come join us September 19 for an inspirational evening where Jan will take us through a journey from his early life in rural Poland to design legend, leading of a thriving team of architects, graphic designers, sculptors, interior designers, and industrial designers in Atlanta.

Lorenc immigrated with his parents to the United States from rural Poland at age eight. He earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in industrial design and visual design from the Illinois Institute of Technology, and a master’s degree in architecture from the Georgia Institute of Technology. He has taught design at the university level, most recently as a professor at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in Atlanta and an adviser to the School of Design at Georgia Tech. He is a frequent lecturer in the United States, China and Korea.

Lorenc is a co-author of the definitive museum and exhibit design textbook — “What Is Exhibition Design?” — which has been translated and published in ChineseRussianKorean, and his native tongue Polish.

In 2017, Lorenc was named by the Society for Experiential Graphic Design (SEGD) as its 2017 SEGD Fellow. According to SEGD, “SEGD Fellows are the laureates of environmental graphic design, recognized for creating a body of work that epitomizes the highest standards of practice in the field.”

His international accolades include being named one of the “Twenty-Five Monuments to Environmental Graphics” by the Society for Experiential Graphic Design (SEGD).

LAFC Stadium Parking


SEGD Los Angeles,

Have you heard about the new "micro-amusement" park in town? 

Two Bit Circus is a 38,000 square feet wharehouse located in the Downtown LA Arts Disctrict and it is loaded with interactive and VR experiences along with classic gaming. Our group has been given a unique opportunity to receive a tour of the arena with the creative director from Two Bit Circus! During the tour we will hear about the design process involved in creating all the graphics and signage, what it took to get the place up and running, and some insight on the technology being used. 

Each ticket comes with a $10 preloaded gaming card so you can try out some of the experiences after the tour! Unfortunately, due to all the noise and foot traffic that will be going on during operating hours, the tour size will be small and there are a very limited amount of tickets available! Get your ticket asap.

Didn't get a ticket in time? You can still show up to the venue to check out the arena, play some games, have some food or drinks and meet up with your friends when their tour concludes.
