Environmental Graphic Design is a multidisciplinary field of design where branding and marketing intersect with architecture and interior design.

So, what does that actually mean? According to Bill Donohue, founder of Emanate Brands, transforming a space into a branded environment can positively enhance user experience, increase brand recognition, and encourage greater engagement. Even employees can benefit from EGD by creating a sense of focus, purpose, and positive impact in their work environment.

How to use EGD in your own business

Pro tip: Whether you’re a small local business or a large corporation, investing in EGD can bring value and increase your ROI (consider it a capital expense). Emanate Brands works with clients in all industries to create custom EGD solutions that leverage their space by reinforcing a brand’s core values, educating visitors, capturing history, and more.

“Branded environments are the ultimate asset for companies that understand the value of expressing their brand in everything they do and every place they do it,” according to SEDG.

Emanate redesigned the mascot and created interior + exterior graphics for Sherman College of Chiropractic to emphasize their brand, mission, and vision throughout campus. They also developed a sponsorship capital campaign by creating naming opportunities for the designs that were available for donors.

The sponsorship campaign not only raised funds for the school’s next generation of doctors of chiropractic, but also covered expenses for the production and installation of graphics.

Recently, Emanate had the opportunity to be a part of Clemson University’s redesign of its Facilities Hub. In particular, they were tasked with creating an environment that elicited pride and connection among the facilities team: the university’s “unsung heroes.”

“You guys took a conversation, turned it into a vision, and then made it a reality,” says Michael Parker, Facilities Manager.
