Designing for Color: March 24th, 2022 at 1:00pm EST

At SEGD, we understand that our community is rich with a diverse array of expertise. Our work brings together graphic designers, industrial designers, exhibition designers, brand strategists, architects,  fabricators, and many others who collaborate to ensure that the built environment not only meets its intended purpose but that it also connects communities through memorable experiences. 

One central element that everyone works with, no matter the discipline, is color. The importance of color cannot be downplayed, however, translating color from the screen to the physical world is a complicated endeavor. Understanding the possibilities and limitations of different digital color spaces, physical applications such as direct print, vinyl, or silk screening, and even the addition of lighting are all key components of design. 

We are proud to be able to put together this panel of various experts from our field to share their point of view and knowledge of how to work with and understand color: 

Paul Dudley, President, ID Sign Systems (IDS)
Eric Alba, Creative, Designer, Producer of Immersive, Location-based Experiences 
Craig Berger, Chair of the CD Pathways Program at FIT
Eddie Lee, Bitro Group
Edmond Shahinian, PCL Graphics
Jessica Schrader, Senior Project Manager, Entro; SEGD-NYC Co-Chair
Gary Teich, Color X Visual Solutions

This event is free and open to our members!

Event date: September 22, 2021

Strategies, Tips and Tricks for Designing Large-Scale Projects from Guidelines to Implementation. Exploring the world of successfully implementing large-scale, multi-phased projects through the viewpoints of a Designer, a Fabricator, and a Manufacturer.

We’ve gathered up an incredible panel of leading experts: 
Craig Berger | Associate Professor & Chair of CD Pathways | F.I.T. 
Paul Dudley | President | ID SIGNSYSTEMS 
Kevin Rourke | Specifications Sales | Davis Marketing Associates 
Trisha Tomanelli | President | T-Squared Design 

The Society for Experiential Graphic Design (SEGD) broadly defines the field as incorporating all of the elements–including wayfinding systems, signage, and branded spaces–that create environments that communicate. This work brings together architects, exhibition designers, brand strategists, and many others who collaborate to ensure that the built environment not only meets its intended purpose, but that it also connects communities through memorable experiences. These transformational projects are often immense in scale and long-term in implementation. These leaders will be exploring these topics and sharing their strategies, tips and tricks around designing large-scale, long term projects from a variety of viewpoints, including: 

- How to put together guideline packages that allow for long-term implementation without loss of quality? 
- How can Fabricators further expand and implement around these guidelines and stay true to the intent? 
- How can we quality-control from a specifications point of view?
