While 2016 seems to be a candidate for worst year ever, from an Experiential Graphic Design perspective, we could not disagree more! SEGD set a new record in membership for the third year in a row and that is just the beginning.
It's a busy year for the profession and firm leaders are starting to act on new opportunities brought about by where we are in the economic cycle. SEGD is doing great and working on next steps to keep the momentum going on improving benefits for members.
It's the day after conference and there is a steady flow of people from the taxi stand outside the Westin Seattle. We're all heading home. Some look a little worn out, but it does not appear that we took any casualties, despite some really good stories. Way to throw a family party, SEGD clan!
It is hard to believe, but we are already in the fourth year of modernizing SEGD, upgrading the membership benefits and still making steady progress with our performance indicators—which are pointing in the right direction. Who said this would be a quick fix?
Member benefits continue to get stronger all the time! This quarter, we continued our ongoing work to improve the value of membership to you--and broke a few records along the way! Membership is at a record high, we just posted the 100th SEGD Talks video, we produced more than 500 new articles on the website and in eg magazine in 2015, and last but not least, we surpassed 3,300,000 page views on www.SEGD.org!
Keeping the community updated on SEGD’s progress brings me great satisfaction. It provides an opportunity to stop and think about what SEGD’s done lately and ask how it is serving your needs.
SEGD is an amazing community of designers, fabricators and manufacturers who create experiences that connect people to place. One of the many membership benefits of SEGD is a library of talks from SEGD's 4-6 events a year. Starting from 2014, these videos are available for viewing for members for free. If you are a member please log in (hint: top right below search) if not please join SEGD and experience its amazing resources.
2014 - A year to remember
Thank you to all the Experiential Graphic Design leaders who joined us for SEGD’s first-ever Business of Design Summit in Denver two weeks ago. We have begun the process of talking about the future of the profession's firms and getting our profession's leadership group together to talk about excellence, sustainability, and growth.

What a year it has been. We've heard from so many of you that this year has been really busy, and we're happy to say that has also been the case for your association. We've been working hard on all aspects of SEGD to make participation a better value for you. Much of our work has been focused on using the website to deliver more and better benefits to you.
