Environmental graphic design and experiential graphic design are visual communications manifested in the physical, material world. Naturally, then, materials are the DNA of the environments and experiences that result. Materiality establishes the tone and nature of their visual vocabulary.
How do you create a thoughtful, dramatic public installation that is simultaneously high-science and curiously low-tech? Studio SC (Seattle) teamed up with the Allen Institute for Brain Science and Perkins+Will to transform a busy South Lake Union corner with illuminated neural “Pathways.”

Portland Maine is even more picturesque and quaint than I imagined it would be—and it’s home to Designtex’s surface imaging program, complete with large-format multi-substrate precision-printing capability and staff of artists, craftspeople, and technologists.
Yorston & Associates and their distributor partner, Harbor Sales, supported the Harvard University Graduate School of Design program, Hybrid Formations: Interdisciplinary Design, last fall with a donation of Alumet Supply aluminum sheet metal. Volkan Alkanoglu, Lecturer in Architecture, described the course as a way to examine and implement techniques and strategies for the design of prototype structures out of aluminum sheet metal.
An excerpt from the course description reads:
Gemini (Cannon Falls, Minn.), an industry leader in the wholesale manufacture of dimensional letters, logos and plaques, expands its GemTrim offering to include two-inch-wide trim cap, supplied in 100-foot rolls. The new two-inch size complements the existing GemTrim three-quarter and one-inch sizes.
The addition of the two-inch-wide size provides customers with a full array of trim cap options to add accent color, depth, and structural integrity to the production of any channel letter project.
