Responsible Design can hold many meanings to different people across disciplines. Please join SEGD for an evening to explore responsible design through the lens of the built environment. Our 3-part panel discussion will feature speakers from different design disciplines, including – Graphic Design, Experiential Design, and Urban Design. 


We hope that you can join us for an evening of inspirational presentations and engaging discussion as we explore responsible design at various scales within the built environment.

The SEGD SF Chapter welcomes you to join us for a shop tour of New Bohemia Signs, San Francisco’s longest running sign shop dealing exclusively in hand-painted signage. If you’ve spent time around SF, you’ve certainly seen incredible work created by Damon Styer and the team at New Bohemia.

Damon will lead us through the shop, sharing history of American sign painting and his perspective on this art form. With diverse work ranging from hand-painted signs, board and windows, to original art works, to architectural gold leaf and gold leaf on glass, New Bohemia’s work will leave you inspired and thinking differently about how we communicate.

Following the tour, participants have the option to join for a recap at Bloodhound. This tour is open only to SEGD members and friends of SEGD. Space is extremely limited, register now!

Thank you to New Bohemia Signs for generously hosting this tour!

We had a great time kicking off the New Year at Adobe's newly renovated cafe space within the Historic Baker and Hamilton Building. Thanks to all who came out to celebrate, network and make some 2017 resolutions. One more special thank you to our event sponsor, Identity Group!

Thank you to everyone who attended our last event of 2016, An Evening With Mike Rawlinson. We had an incredibly enthusiastic response, and sold out within a week of announcing the event. It was a great way to wrap the year.

The evening was filled with an inspiring conversation. Mike shared City ID’s in-depth approach to research, management, and design for complex civic wayfinding programs. With case studies ranging from Moscow to New York City, he explained his strategies for mapping, orienting, and changing behavior across platforms. The evening closed with a lively Q&A.


We would again like to thank all who contributed to this event. To our host and sponsors, Gensler and Priority Architectural Graphics, we are grateful for your support and generous contributions. We would also like to thank JJ Beard for his help in organizing this event, and to the IT and support team at Gensler for getting us running. Finally, we would like to thank Mike Rawlinson for such a thoughtful and engaging conversation.


We hope to see you all at our holiday party and at more events through 2017.
