The SEGD Riga Chapter together with SEGD London Chapter is delighted to invite to the first 2021 years event, which will be dedicated to the topic of Design & City.

 

Simon Jordan, Senior Principal Co-Founder – Jump Studios, will talk about brand experience and how to build a meaningful experiences:

A brand experience is about creating a sensory environment that brings a person into a lasting and meaningful relationship with a brand. And brand experiences have always been affective in a world that craves interaction. More than ever, people want and need a break from the mundane – they want entertainment, they want escapism. But in an increasingly borderless and globalized world, are we really building meaningful and distinctive experiences? 

 

Laura Lorence, Graphic designer – Design studio H2E, will focus on perspectives on designing places:

Everything is interconnected. We are shaped by the environment that surrounds us and events we take part in. Becoming a collection of experiences and memories, we continue to shape the world with our own actions. As unique as our background, are our decisions. What do we aim and search for?

DESIGN FOR SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

 

SEGD Riga Chapter and Design Studio H2E invite to its second event, which is public and in which the discussion will focus on design and social responsibility, with the goal of fostering public demand for quality and socially responsible design that influences a wide range of users. The objective is to make it clear that quality results are not possible without quality orders.

The keynote speaker at the event will Janno Siimar, Strategic Design Lead, CCO and Partner at Estonia’s biggest design studio Velvet. Velvet’s work focuses on consulting the Estonian Government on design matters.

 

The event will take place at Alūksne Bānītis Station, whose design received SEGD Best of Show Award 2019 and which was designed by Design Studio H2E. The choice of venue is symbolic, supporting local tourism and highlighting unique destinations in Latvia. Since the exhibition is in four languages – including that of our neighbour - Estonian, the participation of our near neighbour and colleague is entirely logical. This will be the first public excursion at Alūksne Bānītis conducted by the exhibition designers.

The event audience will be made up of design and architecture industry professionals, design users and design clients. Its goal is experience exchanges and discussions about the possibilities that can be offered by design, if it is used responsibly and in a targeted manner.

 

Admission to event is free of charge, registering beforehand at: [email protected]

There are a limited number of places available.
