D7 Summit Panel: SEGD’s CEO Joins A Historic Gathering in Kansas City for KC Design Week

We are thrilled to announce that Cybelle Jones, CEO of the Society for Experiential Graphic Design (SEGD), will be joining six of her peers in Kansas City for the inaugural D7 Summit, coinciding with Kansas City Design Week. This marks a significant milestone as Cybelle celebrates her fourth anniversary at the helm of SEGD next month. Her leadership has not only enhanced SEGD’s stature among peer organizations but also spotlighted the transformative power of our members’ contributions to experience design.

The D7 Summit, a historic first, brings together leaders from seven prestigious national design associations, including AIA, AIGA, APA, ASLA, IIDA, IDSA, and SEGD. Organized by the Center for Architecture & Design in collaboration with KC Global Design, this panel aims to foster unity and collaborative problem-solving among the design community’s top decision-makers.

Cybelle, alongside her colleagues, will engage in dialogue moderated by Anne Quito, a respected journalist and design critic. They will explore pressing topics such as climate action, equity in the design industry, and the broader impact of design on humanity. This discussion is not only a platform for these leaders to share insights but also an opportunity for attendees to engage directly with the figures shaping the future of design.

The D7 Summit is part of the larger D7 National Design CEO Retreat, an exclusive two-day event designed to address shared challenges and promote collective action within the design community. This summit is a rare opportunity for both leaders and attendees to unify around the goal of leveraging design to solve global and local challenges effectively.

In addition to her participation at the D7 Summit, Cybelle is set to present a webinar with the Center for Health Design on May 9, 2024, focusing on “Wayfindings Impact on Care.”

As Cybelle Jones continues to drive SEGD forward, her participation in this groundbreaking event underscores the critical role of experiential design in today’s world. Join us in supporting Cybelle as she represents SEGD and its members at this pivotal gathering, helping to articulate and amplify the voice of the design community.
