Design Camp Recap Spring 2021: Part II

Earlier this week, we took you inside Design Camp, covering days one and two. We recapped the arrivals, the work sessions, and the incredible dinner parties that truly set the scene. As promised, we’re following up with part two of our recap, complete with emotional and grateful goodbyes to our campers as we wrap up our spring sessions here in Austin. At the start of every camp, we prepare ourselves to laugh, learn, eat great food and make new friends. We know that goodbye is inevitable, but it gets harder every time. So here we are again, capping off another Design Camp and feeling so very grateful for the memories made, lessons learned, and all the beautiful details in between.

SPRING 2021 DESIGN CAMP ATX

 

day three: sessions

 

The last full day of camp is always a special one. Everyone has really bonded and gotten to know one another, and every interaction just feels right. Our campers begin to truly understand and feel the benefits of having a community of designers you can trust and learn from. This year, our Tuesday sessions covered social media strategy, hiring, communication, and interior photography. We referred to this session as ‘Putting it All Out There,’ and it’s essentially our insiders’ playbook to capturing and sharing your work with the world.

 

day three: headshot happy hour

 

We ended our full day of sessions with a Headshot Happy Hour where our talented photographer, Madeline Harper, captured headshots and provided campers with valuable content they can take home with them. Whether these professionally styled headshots are featured on a designer’s About Page, social media bios or press materials, it’s a tangible takeaway designers are always grateful to have on hand.

day three: farewell dinner

 

Tuesday night’s dinner, in partnership with McGee & Co, was truly magical. Inspired by the concept of dining ‘under the open Texas sky,’ we planned a special farewell celebration to mark our last night together. With live music by local artist Cole Bauer, dreamy flower arrangements, and heartfelt discussion beneath the stars, we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect backdrop for our final dinner.

day four: closing session

 

The final day of Design Camp always comes up quickly, but we strive to make the absolute most of our closing session. During this time on Wednesday morning, we covered What’s Next: 10 Steps to Take Action Immediately to set our campers up for success as they head home. While this serves as a helpful debrief to recap all we’ve learned, it’s also a bittersweet farewell between new friends and fellow designers.

day four: final send-off

 

If there’s one thing we know to be true about Design Camp ATX, it’s that the end of camp is only the beginning for our campers. With newfound inspiration and industry knowledge, they are fully equipped with everything they need to take their business to the next level. Now, the real work begins.

 

Thanks so much for joining us on this two-part recap! If you’d like to experience Design Camp firsthand, make plans to join us this October for our Fall 2021 Sessions—we can’t wait to see you there.
