Off Grid 17 Wellington: 2 Days, 17 Venues, 27 Speakers, with 4 free Stopover events in Sydney, Brisbane, Christchurch, and Auckland
Off Grid 17 is a different kind of design conference that through a series of curated events and experiences in diverse locations considers where Experiential Graphic Design fits into the ever-expanding discipline of design? What do Experience Design, Service Design, Wayfinding, Brand Identity and Exhibition Design contribute to Experiential Graphic Design? And, How does Experiential Graphic Design actually connect people to place? Off Grid 17 is an international event from the Society for Experiential Graphic Design (SEGD) — a multidisciplinary community, supported by the Designers Institute of New Zealand, and endorsed by Ico-D. Off Grid 17 is a series of talks and workshops in Wellington with ‘stopovers’ in Auckland, Christchurch, Sydney and Brisbane that will help break up your travel. The city becomes the auditorium so you won’t feel trapped in a lecture theatre or boring conference hotel. Off Grid speakers will engage you in a conversation about the practice of experiential design using exciting locations around the city.
