When I’m not eating or taking pictures, I actually do this stuff: Environmental Graphic Design. Instead of picking paper samples for my design, I have to figure out how that design is going to exist in a 3d environment. Materials, ADA-Compliancy… That cut aluminum lettering with halo illumination? I have to draw up a cross section for the fabricator. Building Evacuation Maps that go in stairwells and elevators. Interpretive Signage that educate you on historical aspects of Then I have to place all the signs on a site plan, in the right place, or pedestrians will get lost.
I have the power to direct them into a wall or onto oncoming traffic.
Super fun stuff, because what I do will be up FOREVER. Or until a building gets demolished or burned down.
