wyman’s design is a super-scaled, dimensional ’40’ that suggests the SEGD brand in a kinetic, sculptural form. he was inspired by the notion of SEGD’s passage into a new era, and his design embodies forward motion.


‘the idea of passing through—of being at a crossroads—made sense to me, and that’s why I combined the 4 and the 0 in this way’ notes wyman.

his design integrates the color bars from SEGD’s pentagram-designed logo and animates them, pushing the 4 through the 0 and in his words, creating a ‘full circle.’


the signed and numbered posters are available for $500 USD from ann makowski at SEGD.
