The 2016 SEGD Global Design Awards are now open for entries. The international awards program honors design work that connects people to place by providing direction, content, and compelling experiences in public spaces.
"The sheer diversity of the winning projects highlights the broad reach of Experiential Graphic Design and its power to improve the quality of life where we work, play, learn, shop, and gather," commented Clive Roux, CEO of SEGD. "Experiential Graphic Design makes life better by creating memorable, user-centered experiences."
The program encompasses seven categories that reflect the core practice areas of XGD: Digital Experience Content, Exhibition, Interactive Experience, Placemaking & Identity, Public Installation, Strategy/Research/Planning, and Wayfinding.
A multi-disciplinary jury representing practitioners from a diversity of design disciplines, as well as clients, users, and students, will evaluate the submissions and select winning projects based on their effectiveness in connecting people to place, creating a unique and memorable user experience, and solving the client's objectives and design challenge.
The extended deadline for submissions is February 21, 2016.
