Design Disciplines Collide at SEGD's Exhibition & Experience Design Workshop

SEGD Exhibition & Experience Design Workshop

August 21-22 in Washington, D.C.

Today, exhibition design is a convergent discipline that borrows elements from retail store design, interpretive wayfinding, storytelling, media, and interaction design. The creatives who develop immersive, compelling exhibition experiences are just as diverse, hailing from the experience design world as well as web development, technology, science, typography, and brand design.

Against the Odds Exhibition

Merit Award 2014
Against the Odds Exhibition

From 1933 to 1941, European Jews sought haven from the Nazis, reaching out to relatives, friends, even strangers. The exhibition Against the Odds: American Jews & The Rescue of Europe's Refugees 1933-1941 tells the little-known story of the Americans who answered the call. Despite strict immigration laws, these generous few, many immigrants themselves, overcame tremendous obstacles to help the Jewish refugees to safety.

What you will learn

EGD can be seen as the art of using space as a medium of communication, making the environment around you tell you where to go, what to buy, where you are, and what to do next. It can even tell you a story. Jonathan Alger,Principal Designer and 2006-2007 SEGD President, provides an overview of how EGD can be used as a storytelling tool in projects as wide-ranging as exhibitions, trade shows, themed spaces, and landscapes.

This installation was created in four months with $87,000, which included all research, design, fabrication, and installation. Both the design and the fabrication of the exhibit reflect the client's modest purpose. Although the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is not well understood in this country, millions around the world know the United States only from the bold shield emblazoned on a life-saving relief shipment tumbling from a truck.
