Since 1987, SEGD has honored the individuals, companies and institutions whose work has significantly advanced the environmental and experiential graphic design fields.
The satisfaction survey for the 2018 SEGD Conference Experience Minneapolis revealed interesting information about what the SEGD community values: 82 percent said that networking was important to them. While "speakers and content" are the most important reasons attendees reported appreciating SEGD events, networking was a close second.
Wayfinding and placemaking design continue to be the heart of experiential graphic design practice worldwide (which is why the 2018 SEGD Wayfinding & Placemaking event, July 19–20 in Los Angeles,is such a key one to attend!). Scroll through the slideshow above to get a sneak peek of of the firms and projects that comprise the talks and tours (ie. what you could be a part of in just three short weeks!).
The 2018 SEGD Conference Experience Minneapolis delivered the highest satisfaction score for an SEGD conference since the great recession. Read about the progress we are making on our education resources and more.
I’m a firm believer in the development of new and more powerful ways to visually communicate important messages non-verbally. But caution is appropriate when attempting to replace a well-established and vitally important societal icon with something that has not been fully usability tested, approved by relevant public regulators, or that has survived the rigors of a comprehensive design process.
Design solutions have ranged from absorptive ceilings to baffles and even plantings. Vertical and horizontal surfaces covered in expensive materials and scattered throughout a design seem to be the standard solution. But what if acoustic comfort hinges on something entirely unexpected?
Michael Courtney Design (Seattle) was recently awarded two Awards at the seventh annual MARKETING NW Awards competition. The winners were announced to a sell-out crowd at Seattle’s Bell Harbor Conference Center. The awards recognize separate Donor Recognition projects designed by the firm: the Berney Family Welcome Center and the Seaton Hall Donor Recognition Wall.
The emotion of the crowd was the inspiration C&G Partners (New York) drew on to design “Comeback Season: Sports After 9/11,” a new special exhibition at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, which opened on June 27. From the pause in play as the nation mourned in the aftermath of the attacks, national sports and its athletes went on to play a significant role in helping the country come together around a unifying message of collective hope and perseverance.

Designed by Brooklyn, N.Y.–based architecture firm StudioKCA, the giant whale sculpture aims to raise awareness about the amount of plastic waste that ends up in the oceans each year.
IDLab in Melbourne did some before and after testing of their new Wayfinding System in a Hospital in Melbourne. The quantified results would be enough to persuade anyone to invest in a new wayfinding system.
Mineta San Jose International Airport and 22 Miles made history by creating and implementing three robotic “customer service agents” to greet travelers and help them navigate through the terminal.
