Avery Dennison Sponsors Society of Environmental Graphic Design (SEGD) 2012 Global Design Awards Presentation

(Painesville, Ohio) June 7, 2012 – Avery Dennison is sponsoring the 2012 SEGD Global Design Awards Program on Saturday, June 9. This year’s SEGD conference participants will explore the “bridges” between local and global cultures, generations, languages, philosophies, and visual styles in Brooklyn and Manhattan. Experiencing two different communities will help designers from around the world explore different approaches and redefine perspectives.

Avery Dennison is proud to sponsor the 2012 SEGD Global Design Awards Program. The SEGD Global Design Awards recognize exceptional environmental graphic design projects that illustrate the pandisciplinary nature of visual communications in the built environment. Winning projects have included complex wayfinding systems, branding and identity work, retail and interior projects, exhibition design, and public art installations.

“We are proud to be part of SEGD’s industry-leading design competition,” said Steve Gary, market segment manager with Avery Dennison Graphics and Reflective Solutions North America. “Avery Dennison graphics products are used every day around the globe by designers to transform spaces into completely new environments. From walls to floors to windows to external surfaces, our materials are the canvas upon which designers can create unique experiences.”

A variety of Avery Dennison digital and opaque pressure-sensitive products were converted by DigiCo to create impactful graphics highlighting the conference’s bridge theme throughout multiple venues where events will be held. Avery Dennison’s newest products, including Supreme Wrapping Film, MPI 1005 Easy Apply RS™ and 900 Supercast Opaque films helped create graphic continuity at the Academic Summit, workshops, tour locations and awards ceremony.

These products are popular choices for graphics and signage in environmental, retail, branding and POP settings.
