Join us for the next eg conversations webinar focusing on rail based transportation projects situated in two of North America’s most populated cities: Toronto and New York. Joining us for this international conversation will be the design leaders planning, designing, and collaborating with public agencies to get people moving and find their way.
Andrew Kuzyk is Principal of entro | G+A based in Toronto. For the last decade the team at entro has been engaged in several key transportation projects across multiple transit sectors including aviation, bus, and rail. Recent rail projects include comprehensive signage and environmental graphics for GoTransit and Metrolinx throughout Greater Toronto including a connector rail line from Toronto Pearson Airport to Union Station Downtown.
Chris Calori is Principal of Calori & Vanden-Eynden Design Consultants based in New York. The team at C&VE has been instrumental at reshaping physical information and brand experiences for both Amtrak’s Acela line along the Northeast Corridor and for the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) in New York City. Their ongoing work on the Second Avenue Subway extension as well as recent work for the Long Island Railroad (LIRR) is part of the herculean effort in planning for the future of urban and regional transit in the New York Metropolitan area.
This webinar will focus on the big picture planning and logistical objectives and varying design constraints that make rail projects one of the most challenging markets for Environmental Graphic Design practitioners. You will have an opportunity to get a glimpse into how designing for such heavily trafficked spaces has the capacity to positively impact the lives of thousands of daily commuters and why user experience and human factors are critical for ensuring people find their way.
You will also learn how design standards from symbols and maps to nomenclature and branding are integrated and applied to ensure consistency and clarity for public users. We will also discuss how the designers and their teams were brought onto the projects and what you need to consider when collaborating the city agencies and transportation officials who manage continually operating infrastructures. Finally, we will explore the requirements and possibilities for digitally driven information systems, and how designers align design vision with technical specification.
This transit-focused webinar is geared for designers, architects, managers, and planners seeking additional knowledge and insights from practicing experts in the SEGD community. The goal of this webinar is to increase participants awareness of practice trends and standards with a focus on the design and management of publically facing information architectures within complex infrastructure systems.
Moderated by Justin Molloy, Director of Education and Professional Development, SEGD.
