Open Buildings

Wouldn’t it be great if all chandeliers could descend from the ceiling, at the push of a button, in order to change a light bulb? Yes, it would, and in the case of the Chan Centre for Performing Arts, it is not just a chandelier but also an acoustic canopy, which can be customized and adjusted to bring musical performances to complete perfection.

Chrissy Davey

I am a creative professional with a diverse educational and experiential background in graphic design, photography and marketing.

My passion is discovering unique stories in all aspects of life, and then creating compelling and relatable written and visual content. Design, photography, and writing all have a cozy place in my heart (though each battles it out for a piece of my time. It's a delicate balance).

Vancouver Community Library

Merit Award 2014
Vancouver Community Library

A “drawer full of knowledge” metaphorically describes the building design and wayfinding concept for the new Vancouver Community Library. A 200-foot long, four-story atrium is the open drawer, exposing the library’s contents and encouraging exploration.

Vancouver International Airport Exhibitions and Environmental Graphics

In Transition

Breaking out of their role as generic waystations, airports are creating compelling experiences with public art, interpretive storytelling, and environmental graphics.

Many of us are filled with dread at the thought of having to spend an inordinate amount of time at an airport. We try to plan our arrival just right, negotiating road conditions, check-in lines, security procedures, restroom stops, and quick caffeine fixes. If we cruise up to the gate just as we hear our boarding call announced over the loudspeakers, we’ve won a major victory.

The first in a series, the Members Only Roundtable was an informal, guided workshop session where chapter chairs worked with members to reveal new opportunities for the Vancouver Chapter. The findings from the workshop have been instrumental in developing an action plan for 2014 and beyond.

Would you like to take part in building and shaping the scene of Experiential Graphic Design in your city? Speak to one of the chapter chairs to learn more about ways you can contribute. See contact details at the bottom of this page.
