Nashville, TN Blog

Join your Nashville SEGD members and friends for a virtual discussion with three interior and architectural photographers.

We've invited three Nashville-based photographers to share their philosophies and approaches for capturing the feeling and spirit of built spaces. Each photographer will showcase his favorite work and share some of the stories behind the shots.

During the Q&A portion of the event, you'll get a chance to ask questions about how you can think like--or work with--a photography professional when it comes time to capture your design projects.

During this virtual event, you will meet:

Nicholas McGinn, Jr. | McGinn Photography

Kerry Woo | Clarity615

Sterling E. Stevens | DESIGN PHOTO


This free event is open to anyone interested in experiential graphic design.

To keep our Nashville SEGD community connected during this time, we are hosting our first virtual event!

We've invited a few local artists to share their work and answer your questions about street art, murals, hand-painted signage, and interactive art installations. Each artist will present his/her work, and then you'll get a chance to ask questions about their processes, their sources of inspiration, and what they are planning next.

During this virtual event, you will meet:

Join us in the newly created showroom at PixelFLEX to discover new ideas for incorporating LED displays into the built environment. The fine folks at PixelFLEX will have their latest products on display, and they will be on-hand to talk through various applications--from artistic to all-weather. This tour will also be a great opportunity to get a first hand look at the installation, maintenance, and content considerations you should keep in mind when proposing LED as part of a solution.

Want to learn more about PixelFLEX? You can some of their past work right here on the SEGD web site.
