SEGD Wayfinding & Placemaking 2019

Wayfinding and placemaking are at the heart of experiential graphic design. Which is why it should be no surprise that the SEGD Wayfinding & Placemaking event is growing exponentially. In fact, the 2018 SEGD Wayfinding & Placemaking event grew again to become the largest Wayfinding event in SEGD history!

The sessions at this years Wayfinding event will cover:

Philadelphia Firms Session:

  • Creating civic places with experiential graphic design
  • From Ski to Surf: Connecting people to place in resort and recreation-centric communities

International Firms Sessions:

  • European Firms: Destination Dessau: Creating place for a city at the center of the modern design movement

  • Canadian Firms: Coast-to-Coast: Creating place through the diverse lens of global, regional and local influences

  • British Firms: Finding the Way Out: British-born experiential graphic design practices at home and abroad

At this year's event, you'll have the opportunity to learn from leaders in the industry, network with fellow wayfinding professionals and return home empowered to take your work to the next level. 

Join fellow wayfinding and placemaking professionals in Philadelphia, August 1-2. Book early, as this event is likely to sell out!
