SEGD Denver hosted a late-summer tour of the Denver Botanic Gardens with iZone imaging on a beautiful, golden hour evening recently. Our friends at the Denver Botanic Gardens guided us through the lush foliage to learn about what goes into making such a unique place. The tour guides discussed approaches to signage, wayfinding, public art, horticulture and Colorado's climate that go into the placemaking efforts that take place at the gardens throughout the year.
Thank you to everyone who attended our ‘Behind the Design at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium’ event last month. It was great to see so many people there from the SEGD community and beyond at what was only the second event we’ve staged in London, and the first in our series of educational events, offering expert insight from professionals from across the world of experiential graphic design.
The CRUSH WALLS festival is a unique event in Denver that brings together artists from across the globe to create the murals that light up the RiNo neighborhood.
At the beginning of September, the SEGD Denver chapter teamed up with the RiNo GID and the North Denver Cornerstone Collaborative to bring the community together to paint a mural at the intersection of 39thand Wynkoop. It was the perfect Denver Sunday, with the sun shining, and we had an amazing turnout of volunteers that collaborated to bring the vision of artist Anthony Garcia to life.
Boston’s SEGD chapter met for a walking tour through members' studios and work along the Rose Kennedy Greenway. The tour began at ArrowStreets office at 10 PO Square. Lauren Haggerty of ArrowStreet highlighted a few Experiential Design projects including The Boston Public Library and a custom seaglass Codfish mural at 225 State Street and the use of VR to explore and present experiential spaces to clients.
