Reflecting on Six Amazing Years with SEGD

Read Time: 2.5 minutes

For the past six years, I have served and represented Australia on the global board of the Society for Experiential Graphic Design. It’s been an incredible ride.

I will never forget my first SEGD board meeting in 2013. It took place on the top floor of the Fairmont in San Francisco—an awesome setting for my first encounter with renowned leaders in experiential design. It was really wonderful to suddenly have so many people to talk with about a field of design I was so passionate about.

Winton, Australia lies 1,356km north-west of Brisbane, surrounded by Matilda country. According to the Australian Traveller it is the dinosaur capital of Australia; paleontologists from around the world flock to the harsh and unforgiving outback to discover dinosaur bones.

Winton is also the birth place of the famous Australian bush ballad, “Waltzing Matilda.” Banjo Paterson wrote the lyrics to the legendary song nearby at Dagworth Station in 1895. It was first performed at Winton’s North Gregory Hotel the same year.

QT Melbourne

QT Melbourne

Located where the “Paris end” of Melbourne meets the darker underground of the Russell Street laneways, the design narrative conceptualized for QT Melbourne was inspired by the site's context and the theatre of burlesque, fusing French Noir inspiration with the glamour of the QT Brand. A noir undercurrent is omnipresent across all guest touch-points, from the intriguing brand identity to the graphic installations, transforming the hotel experience into “Maison QT.”

Coogee Beach Surf Lifesavers Pavilion

Finalist 2018
Coogee Beach Surf Lifesavers Pavilion

The Pavilion provides voluntary lifesavers with facilities to operate from, as well as a public amenity block of toilets, showers and change rooms. The clients wanted to engage with a design team who could build upon the unique and playful character of Coogee, while still meeting the strict requirements for signage and wayfinding within a public amenity facility. The functional aim was to assist with the public’s use of the space as well as soften the contemporary architecture.
