Some examples of work produced by experiential graphic designers include the design and planning of sign programs, wayfinding consulting, exhibit and interpretive design, entertainment environments, retail design, information and map design, as well as memorial and donor recognition programs.
The field developed from origins in signage and branding and requires practitioners to be familiar with communication and information design as well as relevant materials, processes and fabrication, in addition to building codes and project-specific standards requirements. EGD practitioners are frequently trained in design professions such as graphic design, industrial design, architecture, or interior design, and practice in a firm or organization where this work is performed. Currently no certification exists in this profession. There is a professional association for designers in this field called the Society for Experiential Graphic Design, or SEGD.
