Chicago has long been considered a hub for architecture, design, and innovation, and the 2015 SEGD Conference: Experience Chicago will gather experiential graphic design community together June 4-6 to focus on the future of experiential design and its impacts on the city and those who shape it.
The annual SEGD Conference is the gathering place for experiential and environmental graphic designers, architects, landscape architects, interaction designers, branding and strategy experts, technology integrators, fabricators and makers, and clients involved in shaping place and experience.
In Chicago, the community will explore topics ranging from urban redevelopment, Smart Cities, and open data to technology integration and design for social change.
"It's a thrilling time to be involved in experiential graphic design," says Clive Roux, SEGD CEO. "Design in general-and XGD in particular-is evolving rapidly as new digital tools, new open data sources, and new design thinking approaches revolutionize how we design the city and experiences in the public realm.
"It's here, at the SEGD Conference, where experiential graphic designers gather to inspire one another, share best practices, and envision the future together."
The SEGD Conference is the only annual conference designed for creatives working in experiential graphic design. The three-day educational event is designed to inspire, with a combination of hands-on, maker-focused workshops and blue-sky sessions with today's top design thought leaders.
