SEGD event tours allow participants to explore the host city and some of its best examples of experiential graphic design. Tours at this year’s SEGD Wayfinding event will be no different.
Led by local experts, 2017 SEGD Wayfindingtours* will span a wide cross-section of settings, from an airport and a hospital to workspaces and urban wayfinding. ( But tours are selling out, so don’t wait to register!)
Here are the tour options Wayfinding participants can choose from:
Boston Wayfinding with DCL (SOLD OUT!): Experience historic Boston as we navigate our way from the landmark Fanueil Hall Marketplace, walking along the Freedom Trail into the heart of Downtown Boston with Mike McCarthy (DCL, SEGD Board of Directors) and Nafie Nafie (DCL).
