The Sustainable Challenges and Opportunities in Environmental Graphic Design

College of Design & Innovation
Tongji University

ABSTRACT
This paper examines the sustainable challenges and opportunities in environmental graphic design through the lens of two projects implemented in Shanghai. The first, a wayfinding program for the Shanghai South Railway Station, is a study in using EGD to support and enhance sustainable behavior. The second, a signage and EGD program for a practice center at Tongji University, demonstrates EGD’s ability to support cultural sustainability, particularly in the use of typography and symbols to connect users and create a unique sense of identity.

SEGD Core Competencies and Subsequent Implications for Professional Practice

ABSTRACT
The educational core competencies defined by SEGD systematically employ the language of “understanding” as a measurement for evaluating student skills and level of expertise. Half of the 28 core EGD competencies defined by SEGD begin with the word “understanding.” Yet these statements invite broad meaning and interpretation in the design of instruction as well as in the assessment of student performance. This paper addresses reexamining the EGD Core Competencies to promote student performance measures that lend themselves to evaluation aligned to career readiness expectations in EGD.
