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?
