WASHINGTON, DC – In a world that is increasingly complex visually, designers are experimenting with ways to enhance users’ enjoyment of the “real” world with creative experiential designs that communicate. Operating at the intersection of communications and the built environment, the field of experiential design embraces a wide range of disciplines including graphic design, architectural, interior, landscape, digital and industrial design.
Mayer/Reed (Portland, Ore.) designed the logo and style guide for the Gorge Hubs, a network of community-operated “rest stops” that provide hikers, bicyclists and recreationalists with amenities while they explore local experiences.
Mayer/Reed (Portland, Ore.), prides itself on its commitment to alternative modes of transportation, and many of its design, planning, and landscape architecture projects focus on non-automobile systems of travel. But they asked themselves: "How are we actually commuting as an office? Are we walking the walk?"
With 13 years of experience as a designer at Mayer/Reed and with prior firms in Dallas and New York City, Elizabeth Talley is adept at developing wayfindng systems, designing branded signage and graphics, and organizing information. Liz applies a keen problem-solving ability to long-term planning for the health and livability of communities.
