Come one, come all!

It's time to select your 2019 SEGD Wayfinding & Placemaking Tour experience!

SEGD event tours allow participants to explore the host city and some of its best examples of experiential graphic design. These year's Wayfinding & Placemaking tours promise to be no different!

Led by local experts, the 2019 Wayfinding & Placemaking tours (in Philadelphia) will span a wide cross-section of settings, from an industrial rail park and an underpass to a visitor center and a walkway plaza—all inspiring projects and stellar examples of wayfinding and placemaking. But hurry! Tours sell out quickly.

Here are the awesome 2019 Wayfinding & Placemaking tour options for you to choose from:

Innovation Plaza—with SignAgent: An SEGD Global Design Awards Finalist in both 2017 and 2018, the 37th Street walkway—named Innovation Plaza—was designed by Exit Design to connect the nation's largest and oldest urban research park, University City Science Center, with the larger Unversity City District. With its towering red portals, illuminated at night, and 'Innovators Walk of Fame,' an installation of stained concrete blocks providing places to sit and gather, visitors are invited into a space for learning and leisure that reflects the Science Center's dynamic energy and entrepreneurial spirit.

Spring Garden Connector: Now a beautiful, intricately-lit environment, this Philadelphia underpass revitalization was the result of a collaboration between the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation, Cloud Gehshan Associates (CGA) and The Lighting Practice (TLP). The space was modeled after the Spring Garden Greenway theme and transformed through illuminated portal structures with intricate, American Wisteria-inspired patterns, developed by CGA, and unique lighting installations, co-designed with TLP.

Don't miss out! Tours are available to event registrants for an additional $75 fee. Space is limited and on a first-come, first served basis, so REGISTERfor the 2019 SEGD Wayfinding & Placemaking event in Philadelphia, August 1-2, and BOOK YOUR TOUR TODAY!
