SEGD RDU Event

Check-out what our SEGDRDU attendees experience:

With the start of the year officially under our belts, we thought we would reflect upon the 2018 Events for SEGD RDU – our first full year as a chapter. At each event, we connected with a wide range of professionals over the course of the year and expanded our Raleigh-Durham design EGD community network.

Inspire

  • NCMA’s “You are Here - Light, Color and Sound Experiences” private lecture and tour
  • North Carolina’s Museum of Natural Sciences backstage tour of the fabrication shop hosted by the museum’s exhibits department
  • Informal meet-up at a local AIGA event for “An Evening with Paula Scher”
     

Educate

  • PAM Wayfinding Platform – a Progressive Asset Management System hosted by PAM
  • Transportation Wayfinding, Planning, and Design at RDU Airport hosted by Apple Designs
  • US ADA Accessibility Requirements hosted by Nova Polymers
     

Connect

  • SEGD RDU One Year Anniversary Celebration at Lynnwood Grill & Brewing Concern hosted by the Identity Group
     

Not only did our attendees get to connect, be inspired and learn something new through education, but they also took home some enviable, curated door prizes such as:

  • Chris Calori’s “Signage and Wayfinding Design: A Complete Guide to Creating Environmental Graphic Design Systems”
  • Bryce Wilner’s Gradient Puzzle
  • Trendy Foil-Embossed Cocktail Napkins & Tovolo Ice Tray
  • Designer Grid & Note paper from Chet Miller
  • Gift card to the Durham Hotel for Libations & Bites

SEGD RDU

One of our goals for 2019 is to increase engagement with our local design students. In our niche industry, it’s truly a grassroots effort to develop Experiential Graphic Design professionals within our design specialty. We have ideas and University contacts but would love to tap into our local design community’s resources as well. Do you have a great concept for a student-focused event? Are you currently an adjunct or professor and have a need for a guest speaker or guest critic for a portfolio review? Would you or your firm be interested in purchasing a lump sum of student memberships to gift to local design students? Reach out to your chapter chairsto start the conversation!

Contact SEGD RDUwith your ideas or to get our on mailing list.

SEGD Raleigh Chapter Event

SEGD Raleigh Event-iversary!

It’s hard to believe it’s almost been a year since our first SEGD Raleigh event!

 

Thank you to everyone who has attended events, told your friends about us, followed us on social media, and provided sponsorships. Our first year exceeded all expectations and we can’t wait to see what next year has in store.

To celebrate, we are having an informal meet-up at the Lynnwood Grill & Brewing Concern from 5:30 - 8:00 pm on Friday, November 16. There’s no tour, no lecture, just a fun night to get to know the Raleigh SEGD community. If you’re not yet a member, the new-member rate is still active and we’ll have iPads on hand for you to sign up. If you’ve never been to an event before, join us! Members and non-members are welcome - bring your spouse, roommate, coworker, design-loving friend - the more the merrier!
