Nurture your Soul

I have to admit I have a travel bug. Just as soon as I've returned from a trip, I look forward to the next journey, the next experience, and the next batch of information I can add to my human database of knowledge. So maybe my bug is the experience bug. Connecting with our members, the Experiential Graphic Design community, is extremely rewarding. And making those connections in person at our events... priceless. Our community is on fire right now. People are so busy they just can't get out of the office. Sure it's great for business and great for your career.

Bridging EGD: Introducing Communities to the Potentials of Environmental Graphic Design

Justin Molloy
The University of Oklahoma

ABSTRACT
This paper discusses the potential for environmental graphic design (EGD) in emergent and small communities where both EGD and the value of design are unknown. When designers arrive in a community for the first time, they tend to notice things other people do not. Things like how information and experiences are integrated into a cityscape or neighborhood, or how a vision of a community shapes the delivery of their identity or message. When I arrived in Oklahoma nearly a year ago, I was told that there were huge opportunities for design to make an impact. Designers in Oklahoma are aware of what could be possible, but “the bridge” to make design a community focus had to date not been completed. Leaders in these communities have not been connected to the full potential that design offers. Without this knowledge base, the users of these communities do not understand what design is. A common misunderstanding that complicates matters is that design is equated as marketing. Design is mistakenly understood as the way to “dress things up” or make something “eye catching.” The incomplete part of “the bridge” is the notion that design can be a transformative mechanism that goes beyond the surface, and has the capacity to change the way we experience our present moment and envision our future.

LAX Feature

By Justin Molloy

In case you haven’t noticed, the digital world has changed dramatically in the last three years. When the first Xlab hit the streets of New York in 2011, we were living in a mobile-centric world where Steve Jobs had just departed our planet, Siri was launched, and everyone was consumed with the latest apps. In 2012, Xlab headed to Austin and we began to see that digital in spaces was going to be far more powerful than just devices.
