Did you find what you’re looking for? This common customer service question is at the heart of experiential graphic design. The Society for Experiential Graphic Design (SEGD) broadly defines the field as incorporating all of the elements – including wayfinding systems, signage, and branded spaces – that create environments that communicate. This work brings together architects, exhibition designers, brand strategists, and many others who collaborate to ensure that the built environment not only meets its intended purpose, but that it also connects communities through memorable experiences.
How has the rise of technology-based solutions and contactless interactions influenced the future of wayfinding and experiential graphic design? In our monthly virtual Design is Everywhere podcast live show, host Sam Aquillano will welcome guest co-host Kayte Muse, who is a designer, strategist, and co-chair of the Boston Chapter of SEGD. Her experience includes experiential graphic design for Affinivax, Boston University, and Mill Creek Residential. Their guest is Cliff Selbert, who, with collaborator Robin Perkins, has won a myriad of international awards, and created some of the world’s most distinguished landmarks, including the Gateway of Los Angeles Airport in California. Sam, Kayte, and Cliff will discuss how to balance the pressing urgencies of our time with the need for accessible spaces that center human connection. They will also share their Weekly Dose of Good Design. Bring your questions, and ask them live on air.
