The NYC Chapter recently visited the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) to introduce students to SEGD and XGD. On Thursday Sept. 4th, Board Member Bryan Meszaros and Chapter Chairs, Anna Sharp and Anthony Ferrara gave a presentation to Christina Lyons' Graduate Exhibition Design course. The presentation consisted of an introduction to SEGD as well as project examples designed by each member that showed the range of XGD from strategy/planning, signage/wayfinding to digital and retail experiences.
On October 10th, Board President Jill Ayers along with NY members Ben Whitehouse, Harriet Spear and Chapter Chairs Anna Sharp, Rachel Einsidler and Anthony Ferrara gave a similar presentation to Leslie Blum's undergraduate Communication Design class. Again, members discussed SEGD and XGD with the students and showed examples of XGD projects they've developed. Following the presentation, student teams presented ideas for a social awareness campaign group assignment that they will be working on in the upcoming weeks. The SEGD members provided feedback to each team and will be returning to the class on October 8th to participate in the final critique.
