SEGD DCA hosted a tutorial and case study presentation at Mapbox's DC headquarters on 2-12-20. Mapbox Studio UX Designer Julia Rickles and Developer Alex Parlato took us through the mechanics of creating highly-customizable maps, while G&A designers Christian Cabrera and Ben Keel showcased the power of maps in storytelling through several museum exhibit examples. Afterwards we networked at Mapbox's amazing studio space!

For our first event of 2020, we headed out of the city to West Chester to gather with members we haven't seen in a while. It was a great evening to gather with friends, colleagues and future designers. We invited 16 members to join us for an intimate dinner and conversation about all things EGD.
We had a blast at our last event of 2019 and are gearing up for some amazing experiences in 2020. Our tour of History Colorado and the exhibit Zoom In: The Centennial State in 100 Objects lead by Tryba Architects was fascinating. Our chapter was fortunate enough to get a peek at the collections storage, as well as hear about the design of the building, how objects are collected, stored and archived and how that all translated into the exhibit. It was amazing to see 13,000 years of human history in what is now considered Colorado represented in 100 objects.
