SEGD Houston 1st Anniversary was a success!

Our first anniversary event was a great success and we want to thank all of those who joined! There were many new faces (exciting) and many dedicated members who continue to support our chapter! Our photo only shows a few of the 25 who were in attendance. We discussed goals for the coming year and were excited to announce our next event will be a Crawfish Boil at Graphtec - more info to come in the following month.


We would like to kick-off 2020 with a casual get together on Thursday, January 23rd.

We will be celebrating our 1 year anniversary of our Chapter (the most recent one J) and would love to see you all.

We would also like to discuss what events you would be looking for in 2020 and any feedback you have for us!

Please RSVP using the Eventbrite link below:




Hope to see you all!

Join us for an inspirational evening with Polish-American designer, SEGD Fellow and author, Jan Lorenc. Jan will take us on a journey from his early life in rural Poland to acclaimed designer, leading a thriving team of architects, graphic designers, sculptors, interior designers, and industrial designers in his Atlanta design firm, Lorenc+Yoo Design. The firm is responsible for award-winning museum spaces, trade show exhibits, sculptures, wayfinding and placemaking for renowned clients including Delta, the Mayo Clinic, Sony, Hyatt, Samsung, UPS, and many others. 

Lorenc immigrated with his parents to the United States from rural Poland at age eight. He earned degrees in industrial design and visual design from the Illinois Institute of Technology, and in architecture from the Georgia Institute of Technology. As a professor Jan has taught at the renowned Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in Atlanta and has been an adviser to the School of Design at Georgia Tech. He is a frequent lecturer in the United States, China and Korea. Jan is also co-author of the definitive museum and exhibit design textbook — “What Is Exhibition Design?” — which has been translated and published in Chinese, Russian, Korean, and his native tongue Polish.

In 2017, Jan was named SEGD Fellow, sharing the organization's highest honor with the likes of Paula Scher, Massimo Vignelli, Lance Wyman, Deborah Sussman, Robert Venturi, Ivan Chermayeff, and David Gibson, among others.





SEGD Houston Out on the Town

Another great SEGD Houston Chapter Event in the books! This was a casual get together, with a great mix of members and the Salsa music was just an added bonus! Stay tuned for information on our next event - it's going to be one not to miss! SAVE THE DATE - October 24th!

Houston May Event

A big thank you to APCO for sponsoring Houston's May Event - Dinner & Discussion!

I wish we had photos of all 20 people who attended our casual and fun May Event, but I hope you can see from this photo how much fun was had! We had spectacular weather, great food and were able to sample beers on the patio at Karbach Brewery! The best part was the lively discussions had by all. I hope to see everyone at the Conference in Austin!
