The creators of next weeks big Design Camp Atlanta are impressive in and of themselves, However, put the two of them together and it’s a powerhouse of design intellect. With the big event right around the corner we will be focusing on highlighting the careers and personalities of all the “Camp Counselors” that make up this 3 day Camp.
Since I never went to sleep away camp as a child, I’m long overdue for some bonding and character building exercises. Luckily for me the only camping I’ll be doing is in a 5star Midtown hotel and there won’t be any campfires or smores but instead, cocktails and networking receptions. (If they had a camp like this when I was growing up I would have insisted on going)
Today we’re going to start at the top with these two lovely ladies who created and conceptualized this event. Since we already covered the “How” of getting to the camp in our recent post about Charlotte based designer Traci Zeller we will explain some of the “Who” of Design Camp Atlanta 2013.
