ENVIRONMENTAL GRAPHIC DESIGN  INFO
Deborah SUSSMAN  

Awarded the 2004 AIGA MEDAL
Founded in 1914 as the American Institute of Graphic Arts, AIGA remains the oldest and
largest professional membership organization for design and is now known simply as “AIGA, the
professional association for design”

Deborah Sussman has worked at the interface of graphic design and the built
environment for more than 30 years. She has created striking visual imagery and
devised its imaginative application for architectural and public spaces both
permanent and temporary, including the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles, Seattle's
opera house, and Disney World. Throughout her career Sussman has claimed
an ever more expansive role for graphic design in the urban landscape. Sussman
uses graphic design to emphasize aspects of the built environment and to
provide rich connections to the communities and cultures in which it will
participate.

IMPORTANT EVENT
MPavilion
a unique architecture and design experience in Melbourne  

Melbourne is recognised around the world for its fine gardens and vital public

MPavilion is a special four month program of events to be held in the heart of
Melbourne that will highlight how architecture and design touches and enhances
all aspects of our everyday life. The Naomi Milgrom Foundation has

workshops, performances and installations.

The MPavilion will be set up from October until January in the Queen Victoria
Gardens (opposite NGV International), in the Southbank Arts Precinct. It will be a
highlight of Melbourne’s spring/summer calendar of events and festivals for the
next three years 2014 – 2017.

WEBSITE DESIGN  
A Showcase of Websites with Unusual Navigation

One of the most important parts of web design is the navigation bar. A good
navigational system on the website is essential to direct visitors to what they
need. People like to be able to find what they want quickly and easily.
Conventional website design usually displays a navigation bar in the left hand
side of the page or at the top of the page. Designers usually use plain text, as to
make it clearly visible and not to distract too much from the main site. It can be
risky to change around the navigation as you don’t want to confuse visitors and
lose out on potential customers and sales.

However, the novelty of a different navigational system could lead to a lower
bounce rate and more time spent on your site. As long as your bear in mind
functionality and usability into your design and think about what visitors to your
site will want then it can work.

Check out some of the examples of unusual navigation.
Which ones do you think work?
