Hello SEGD community and thank you so much for welcoming me into my new role as Co-Chair for the Seattle chapter, alongside and in partnership with such a talented and intelligent cohort of design professionals. I am so excited for the opportunity to further SEGD’s mission to educate, inspire, and connect with the local multidisciplinary community of designers here in the Pacific Northwest. In honor of Earth Day this year, and as a way to help introduce myself to you all, I wanted to share a little bit about how our firm, Gensler, and specifically its Brand (EGD & Signage) practice area, has been assembling, planning, and designing for a resilient, carbon-free future in the face of today’s climate crisis.
