In 2014, I volunteered to become a Chapter Co-Chair in Los Angeles in the hopes of growing our local Chapter and creating events that would appeal to those in our industry. As time went on and our LA membership grew, it was exciting to see the addition of new members from various design backgrounds (signage, digital, exhibit design, fabrication and manufacturers).
Each event that we hosted really highlighted the fact that SEGD is a great community where multiple disciplines fit together. It made me realize how unique SEGD is and how it’s truly an intersection of design.
Since becoming the Chapter Chair Liaison in January 2017, it’s been exciting to see how each Chapter develops unique events for their local members. From tours of recently opened athletic stadiums and local design studios to panel discussions on responsible design, the Chapters have done a great job of making SEGD events appeal to everyone practicing or interested in experiential graphic design
