24 March 2021 6:00PM-07:30PM
Presented by SEGD in partnership with the DesignSingapore Council,and supported by the National Design Centre.
What is experiential graphic design? Who can practice it? What skills does it involve and how can it transform the environment around us by engaging our emotive responses?
Through four quarterly series presented by SEGD (Society for Experiential Graphic Design) Singapore Chapter, we explore these questions and more under the sub-themes of Environmental Graphics & Wayfinding Design, Exhibition and Interpretive Design, Placemaking, Branding & Marketing Design, and Entertainment & Events Design. Join us in a series of conversations with design practices from Singapore and South-East Asia, as we dive deeper into what experiential graphic design means to them and how it drives their practices to innovative design solutions and memorable experiences and spaces.
