On June 5, the graphic design community will see a "convergence" of sorts. The annual conference of the Society for Experiential Graphic Design (SEGD) will convene in Atlanta, with the theme "Convergence: Crossing Lines."
The conference is a chance for those in the graphic design industry to attend workshops, see presentations from innovative designers, take tours of local design highlights, and exhibit work and find inspiration in the work of others.
The SEGD bills their annual graphic design conference as the only such gathering for EGD professionals, which includes traditional and modern graphic designers as well as architects and industrial designers. This year's program is packed with cutting-edge innovators and inspiring events. A few you shouldn't miss include:
Design Improv(e) — A philanthropic twist on a perennial conference favorite, this year's Design Improv workshop will offer help to Emmaus House, a non-profit dedicated to eradicating poverty in Atlanta.
Andreas Uebele — Industry leader Uebele will explore new ways of thinking about signage, such as leading people subconsciously to the role of signs in creating the identity of a space, and eschewing capital letters.
World of Coca-Cola and Centennial Olympic Park Tour — Wander the iconic facilities designed for the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, and the EGD masterpiece that is Coca-Cola's global headquarters and museum.
These represent just a tiny sampling of the programming. With many of the industry's most creative designers presenting, Convergence has something to offer professionals and students involved in any aspect of EGD. The graphic design conference runs June 5-7 at the Loews Atlanta Hotel.
