SEGD Podcast: Developing a Documentation Process


What you will learn

The Documentation packages for Environmental Graphic Design projects are becoming bigger and bigger without clear standards in place for the development of consistent drawing sets. Clayton Moss and Scott Souchock both have extensive documentation expertise and experience in this area. 

In this Podcast, Clayton will talk about multi-level documentation strategies and strategies that designers can utilize when thinking about how to document a project in the design phase. Scott discusses architectural drawing sets and shares a logical approach to structure the drawing packages in the set. Other information included in this podcast includes: drawing document order, and what to include in EGD document sets to allow clients and others clear communication and understanding of a project with the content formed to flow.
