Virtual Lunch with Jan Lorenc

Virtual Lunch with Jan Lorenc

Grab your lunch and join SEGD Richmond, Charlotte, and Raleigh next Tuesday for a virtual presentation with Jan Lorenc, SEGD Fellow and founder of Lorenc + Yoo Design. Jan will present his insight after more than 42 years in the creative field, which is bound to be quite inspiring!
Jan Lorenc attended the Art Institute of Design at IIT where he received a BS in Industrial Design and MS in Visual Design. He worked for Peterson Associates, an offshoot of Unimark, where he designed the logo and signage guidelines for Target Stores, which are used to this day. He established Lorenc+Yoo  Design in 1978 in Chicago. The company initially undertook industrial design projects, and later began work on large scale signage. In the mid-1990s, the firm moved into exhibits, interiors, and architecture. The firm has worked in Korea, UAE, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, India, and Japan. Currently, half of their work is in China, where it creates the vision and design for brand new towns.

EGD involves the orchestration of typography, color, imagery, form, technology and, especially, content to create environments that communicate.

Examples of experiential graphic design include wayfinding systems,architectural graphics, signage and sign programs, exhibit design,retail design,and themed or branded spaces. Increasingly, experiential graphic design involves the use of digital technologies and systems that present dynamic content through motion graphics and make possible rich interactions between a user in a place and the information being provided.
