Portland Chapter

Portland, OR Blog

How does experiential graphic design connect people and place? SEGD invites you to explore the possibilities at a one-night installation along the Lawrence Halprin Open Space Sequence.

Discover a re-imagined landscape where typography, color, imagery, form, light and sound converge to promote playful interactions between people, nature, and architectural form. Each team of multi-disciplinary designers will interpret Halprin’s original concept and explore the significance of interactions in public space.

Begin at the Keller Fountain and follow the path to Pettygrove Park, Lovejoy Fountain, and the Source Fountain. End the evening with a gathering, treats and performance at the Lovejoy Fountain.

Join us for a round table discussion of how Experiential Graphic Design connects people and place.

Interpretation, wayfinding, and art contribute to our experience of public place. Should it be secondary to the landscape and architecture? Should it make a statement? Bring examples of a favorite project in Portland or from afar.

We will also discuss the design concepts planned for our Design Week Portland event.

Snacks provided. RSVP through Eventbrite.

We had a great turn out for our recap of this year's annual conference, “Convergence: Crossing Lines”. Delta Cafe provided the perfect atmosphere and delicious southern-style treats to help us recreate the flavor of SEGD in Atlanta. Co-chair Mike Sauer led us through the conference highlights with a slideshow, and there was plenty of NEXPO swag to peruse as we shared memories and reconnected over cocktails.

Thank you Delta Cafe for hosting us, and thanks again to our sponsor Tube Art Group.
