Olson

Merit Award
Olson, Gensler

At Olson, connection is all that counts. For creativity to become contagious, it must first be human. Slated to be the largest advertising agency in Minneapolis, the rapidly expanding Olson enlisted Gensler to interpret its strategies for a design solution structured on Olson Brand Anthropology. Olson secured 125,000 square feet within Minneapolis’s historic Ford Center building, and the design team was tasked with allowing the industrial character to shine through.

Golden Gate Bridge Pavilion

From the SEGD Archives, circa 2012: San Francisco’s most famous landmark turned 75 in 2011 and in honor of the occasion, as well as anticipation of the rush of visitors it would inspire, the Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District (the bridge operator) partnered with the Golden Gate Bridge National Parks Conservancy to rethink the entire visitor experience.

Dimensional Maps

From the archives, circa 2012: Despite my anticipation and glee at what technology will allow us to do in the future, I want to sing the praises of what could be considered a rather antiquated wayfinding form: the tactile or dimensional tabletop-style map.
