SEGD Texas Event was a success

Thanks to everyone who joined the first ever ALL Texas Chapters Zoom Event. We cannot thank Jill Elliot, founder of The Color Kind enough for showing us all that taking 10-15 minutes each day to be creative (and not related to work) can be so inspiring! She shared keys on how to start the process, how to set realistic goals and just how to have fun!

Please reach out to Jill to learn more or check out her website https://www.thecolorkind.com/

Thanks again to all those who attended and we look forward to doing this again in the future!

Please join us next week on November 5th, 2020  12pm - 1pm  CDT

For a virtual creative workshop presented by Jill Elliot, founder of The Color Kind – Creative Living Everyday



“A world fueled by creativity is a better place to live. More joy, deeper connection, less stress. All good things, right?

In this workshop, we’ll explore the benefits of consistent creative practice and do some quick beginner-friendly, prompt-lead art to open ourselves up to exploring our flow + creativity.

Please have the below ready to participate in the creative part of this workshop:

A few sheets of any type of blank paper and things for mark making: pencil, crayons, marker, paint + brush, stickers etc.

This is a joint Austin, Dallas, Houston SEGD chapter event.

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!

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.
