Come cool off and celebrate the last bit of summer with us, Thursday, August 23 at 5pm at The Larry.


“Hey, it’s Larry! Come explore my new home that is the all-day-vibes food and drink hangout from the team at Conceptually Social, anchored in the Phoenix Warehouse District. Here, you’ll mingle with DTPHX buddies, sip a freshly made cocktail, caffeinate on specialty coffees and simply want to stick around a little longer.”

The 2017 MVCD Grad Show was a great success and we had a great turnout. This show features ASU's  graduating Visual Communication Design Students' work in both the undergraduate and graduate level. The GDSSA (Graphic Design Senior Student Association) and AVCD (Association of Visual Communication Design) were able to successfully fund-raise $10,000 for this show with the help of organizations like SEGD. Students were able to build and design their exhibits to educate the public about current social issues.

Trish Nhan, SEGD's Phoenix's Chapter Chair had a booth set up with flyers, magazines, and a banner to educate visitors about SEGD. Guests enjoyed the exhibit experiences and were more informed about the local SEGD Phoenix Chapter.

Thank you so much to everyone that made it out to our Chapter Launch Party on March 22nd.  We had a great turnout for our first Phoenix chapter event, and we are very excited to keep the momentum going!

We had about 50 attendees and it was fun gettingt to know all of you.  We also raised $100 for ASU GDSSA's End of the Year Graduate Exhibition thru our signage letter rummage at Airpark Signs.  We hope you are loving your new letters and would love to know what you are doing with them.  If you have any photos, please share and email to [email protected] and we will feature you on our chapter blog.

Our next event is going to be a viewing of Sign Painters late summer, please check back often for info, we promise it will be another great event. 

Lastly, thank you so much to Gretchen and her staff at Airpark Signs for being such a great host!  Everyone enjoyed visiting your sign shop and seeing the creative energy floating around your studio and shop.
