The 2019 SEGD Conference Experience Austincame to a close on June 8. We know attending an SEGD Conference is an amazing opportunity and not everyone in our industry is able to attend on an annual basis. Your Raleigh Chapter Co-Chairs decided to bring little bits of the conference back to you, by sharing our individual perspectives in a 3-part series, kicking off today and rolling-out in the next few weeks.
A huge thank you to Modulex Carolinasfor hosting the tour of The Dillon, and Kane Realtyfor being our tour guide. The Dillon has become a pillar of the Raleigh skyline, with an unbeatable view of downtown. It is a vibrant showcase of what architecture can represent in the south, and how historic roots can be preserved in modern design. It was fascinating to see how many elements of the old structure were kept alive, and the authenticity of all the repurposed objects.
A huge 'thank you' goes out to the Koroseal Digital + WeaveUpfor hosting such a creative and colorful event. The maker-space vibe at WeaveUp garnered oooh’s and ahhh’s from the SEGD RDU crowd. Laura Cavendar with Koroseal and Steve De Santis with WeaveUp created a pre-event design activity for the attendees.
With the start of the year officially under our belts, we thought we would reflect upon the 2018 Events for SEGD RDU – our first full year as a chapter. At each event, we connected with a wide range of professionals over the course of the year and expanded our Raleigh-Durham design EGD community network.
One of our goals for 2019 is to increase engagement with our local design students. In our niche industry, it’s truly a grassroots effort to develop Experiential Graphic Design professionals within our design specialty. We have ideas and University contacts but would love to tap into our local design community’s resources as well. Do you have a great concept for a student-focused event? Are you currently an adjunct or professor and have a need for a guest speaker or guest critic for a portfolio review?
