Women in EGD: Same as It Ever Was?

By Teresa Cox, APCO Graphics

The challenges women have always faced in the workplace—imbalances in leadership, unequal pay, juggling work and personal life, and living down feminine stereotypes—are still alive and well for women in EGD, despite the more liberal nature of the design world.

These realities create both frustrations and opportunities, said participants on SEGD’s Women in Design panel at the 2014 SEGD Conference in Atlanta June 5-7.

ANSI A117 Update

Note: SEGD members Dave Miller (Nova Polymers) and Teresa Cox (APCO Graphics) participated in ANSI A117 Committee meetings in January. The A117.1 Committee is working on the 2015 edition of the ANSI A117.1 model code on accessibility. Proposed changes in the code may eventually appear in state and local building codes or in a future update to the U.S. government’s 2010 Standards for Accessible Design (SAD). The following is a report from Dave Miller.

The first meeting of the ANSI A117 committee concluded on Friday, January 24, at the U.S. Access Board offices in Washington D.C.

APCO Signs (Atlanta) introduced Imagine, a new eco-friendly, image-infused modular sign system. The system offers an extensive library of images and patterns, allowing users to communicate a brand, support an image-based wayfinding program, or enliven an otherwise ordinary design. The graphics portion of the signs are updatable and the system is easy to maintain, says APCO.

This new facility will meet the needs of the large and growing U.S. military veteran community in southern Nevada. The $600 million, 1.3 million-sq.-ft. complex is designed to provide outstanding care for veterans, from young warriors returning from the Middle East to senior veterans in need of nursing home services.
