For the first time ever this year, one in eight participants at the SEGD Conference will be a student!
SEGD is already experiencing record membership highs, and this influx of student members just adds to the wave of excitement building in the organization in anticipation of the conference June 4-6 in Chicago.
Feeling thirsty and adventurous? After all, your evenings are your own at the SEGD Conference, so why not take advantage?
In the spirit of entropy, and an urge to explore (did someone say xplore?), I present to you a few random (but really fun-sounding) ideas for your albeit limited free time during the 2015 SEGD Conference:
Chicago – The late-night crowd at hot dog stand Weiner’s Circle can be a bit boisterous, something that would intimidate most people. But Candidate John Lutz seems to find nourishment – literal and political – there.
Lutz feels his favorite late-night eateryis a great showcase for his common touch
Chicago—Earlier today, John Lutz nearly announced his candidacy to assumed billions of Internet viewers and his purported Facebook friends: “My name is John Lutz and I’m announcing my candidacy because I’m #goingsomewhere”. An elderly relative was reported as saying, “I’m glad he’s going somewhere. I’d like my basement back.”
Does your boss need some persuading to sign off on your trip to Chicago for the 2015 SEGD ConferenceJune 4-6? We can help with that. Here’s a letter that will show her the ROI, not to mention the ROO and the ROA!
What do the SEGD 2015 Wayfinding Workshop and Walt Disney have in common?
I spent a few hours at the Walt Disney Museumin San Francisco last Friday after the SEGD Wayfinding Workshop.Created by Rockwell Group in 2009, the museum provides a fascinating look into Walt Disney, the man. From the very first display, you are made aware of what drove Disney.
It created some desperately needed perspective on the evolution of XGD today
The 2015 SEGD Academic Summit, June 3 in Chicago, will present the latest in peer-reviewed research related to EGD and XGD. Topics include Social Engagement through EGD, Responding to User-Centered Needs through Designed Experiences and User Engagement in Interactive Signage Design, among others.

Happy Spring! I hope everyone is having a productive season, feeling inspired every bit of the way. From talking to members over the last few months, it appears that people are busier than ever and that’s a great thing. We recently held our quarterly board meeting at the RTKL offices in downtown Los Angeles, where we reviewed several planning issues for 2015, including our strategic plan.
