Design Camp Giveaway



As of yesterday, I officially joined the team of speakers [otherwise known as “counselors”] for Design Camp Atlanta!  I was so thrilled when Lori Dennis, celebrity designer and one of the masterminds behind Design Camp, asked me to be a part of Design Camp. 


Celebrity Interior Designers Lori Dennis and Kelli Ellis have put together a jam-packed weekend filled with seminars led by design industry experts.  Design Camp took Austin, Texas by storm [over 120 attendees!!] in October 2012 and the reviews were amazing.  Their next stop on the tour is Atlanta!  The seminars are full of “practical, applicable, real-life design insight you don’t get from traditional institutions.”

The course is tailored for design professionals and design aficionados. Each day runs from 9AM-6PM and is broken down into 8 segments per day. Drinks, Snacks, Lunch, and Cocktail parties included. By the end of Camp, attendees will have the confidence and ability to run successful modern-day design careers and take their careers to an entirely new level, network and collaborate with local suppliers and colleagues.

Design Camp is coming to Atlanta January 30th – February 1st and is being held at the fabulous Fox Theater.  Tickets are selling out fast but one lucky reader from this blog will win a FREE TICKET to the event. 

This giveaway is valued at $1297!!!
