SEGD will be hosting a presentation on iconic San Diego signage during the inaugural San Diego Design Week!
Wednesday 9/9 at 11:30am
San Diego has a unique collection of community identity signs. Some are historic, some are more modern, but all help to create a sense of place for the unique character of the community they represent. These signs are a sense of pride for residents, a welcoming feature for visitors, and often a driver for economic development.
Simon Andrews, Principal of San Diego-based sign design and planning firm Graphic Solutions, will present with Beryl Forman, Marketing and Mobility Coordinator for the El Cajon Boulevard Business Improvement Association. Together they will share how The Boulevard sign, which sits at the western gateway to El Cajon Blvd., became one of San Diego’s most iconic community signs, and how it shaped this important and historic corridor.
Looking forward to seeing you all there.
Join us for a cross-chapter virtual happy hour with your friends in LA, OC and SD. Network with some familiar, and some not familiar, faces across our region. Connect with some new people in themed break-out rooms, inspire each other, laugh and have a drink together—good times for all.
Look forward to seeing and meeting you there!

Join us for a chat with Ashley Cashion, and explore the possibilities on how solutions such as what3words can add value to your wayfinding and UX projects.
what3words is the simplest way to talk about location and the first system built for voice. Designed to make sure every place in the world has an address, what3words divided the world into 10ft squares, each with a unique 3 word address made from three random words. Now people can refer to any precise location – a stadium entrance, a tent at a festival or a parking spot – using three simple words.
For example ///fake.peanut.spot marks the entrance to our famous San Diego Zoo! what3words addresses are as accurate as GPS coordinates.
Ashley heads what3words in the US, and is focused on developing partnerships with public safety, travel and entertainment, mobility and logistics companies. She joined what3words in the London HQ in 2017, taking the lead of the Automotive and Mobility team soon after, later opening the first US office for what3words.
Prior to what3words, Ashley spent nine years at CNN International, managing advertising sales across Africa and the Middle East from its London headquarters, with a stint in the UAE. She started her career at HGTV (Scripps Networks) in NYC, where she spent almost three years on the advertising sales team. Outside of the office, Ashley can usually be found chasing her toddler around, hiking or on the rare occasion painting!
