Please join us on Thursday 8/13/2020 at 12PM EST for an exciting SEGD Virtual Event featuring Image Options | SplashView.
 
Two of our core missions here at SEGD are to serve as a source of continuing education and to foster relevant, well-informed research to enhance our collective knowledge base.

To that end, Image Options has offered to provide an exclusive session for our chapter. Their team has developed a unique browser-based software tool that enables multifunctional teams to collaborate on the design of interior spaces in a virtual reality environment. 

SplashView - a 360 Augmented Reality Digital Space Builder - enables designers, architects and event planners to create a collaborative, augmented reality experience and make it completely immersive with Mixed Reality. You can add all graphic treatments to walls, floors, ceilings, etc. with easy change and swapping. 

Given current global circumstances, and the movement towards increasing and enhancing remote capabilities, we at SEGD NY found this to be an especially pertinent topic for our members. We will learn about how the software works, how others are utilizing it, and the benefits it can provide.

The SEGD Fellows | Northeast Regional: Living Room Lecture Series

SEGD Boston is excited to kick off a new era of programming for our chapter and SEGD overall with The SEGD Fellows Northeast Regional: Living Room Lecture Series beginning with one of the key individuals responsible for the creation of our organization!

Join us from the comfort of your own living room, Thursday April 30, 2020 at 6:30pm for the start of this informative series with our first speaker Rich Burns, Co-Founder of SEGD and the first SEGD Fellow. 

Have you ever wondered how SEGD was founded? What was the initial plan? What were the future goals for this as once fledgling organization? Is SEGD living up to those dreams, or are we surpassing them? What it was like to foster a new professional organization while running a fledgling EGD practice? These questions and more will be answered during this intimate virtual discussion.

Rich Burns, served as our third president, as a longtime member of the board of and in 1987 along with Jim Glass, was selected as one of the Society’s first Fellows. His firm, the GNU Group was an offshoot of his position as an in-house graphics group within the landscape architectural firm, the SWA Group. The firm’s early entry into the world of signage came about when SWA was asked to design the sign program for a new master planned community. Recognizing that he knew precious little about sign program design and invited by his old classmate, John Berry to attend the first ad-hoc meeting of what would become SEGD, he was compelled to attend. The rest as they say is history, which Rich will share in this first of our virtual meetings.

Rich will join us live from the West Coast as we watch his recent SEGD Talk from the Branded Environments Conference. He will share stories from SEGD’s history including how things ramped up for the organization right here in Harvard Square! We will wrap up with a live Q&A session. 

EVENT DETAILS:
Where: via Zoom Mtg
When: Apr 30, 2020 06:30 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada) 

Register/RSVP link
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

*This special event will also be an opportunity to join with our fellow chapter members in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington DC as it's the first virtual regional chapter event of a series that will continue to bring us together and highlight our Fellows, even when we are finally able to come together again in person. Each session will be “hosted” by a new city and will help to keep us all connected in these uncertain times.*

Up next in The SEGD Fellows Northeast Regional: Living Room Lecture Series will be Chris Calori and David Vanden-Eynden of Entro.

Looking forward to seeing everyone Thursday April 30, 2020 @ 6:30pm!

In good health, 
SEGD Boston, SEGD New York, SEGD Philadelphia & SEGD Washington DC
