[Conference] Step Outside Design Camp

We don’t think creativity thrives in a blank convention center; we think it deserves fresh air.

Design Camp is a unique conference where we take the our profession and passion to the great outdoors. We pair premier thinkers, speakers, and design icons with the beauty of northern Minnesota to give you a full weekend to refresh and jumpstart your creativity.

Find your inspiration in the north woods.

Limited to 350 attendees, Design Camp will gather designers, artists, art directors, copywriters, web developers, students, educators, and other creative-minded folks who are ready to learn from each other. The day-to-day schedule consists of speakers, workshops, and activities to both teach specific skills, and relax your creativity and let your mind wander.


  • Five renowned keynote speaker presentations
  • Three curated workshops out of many options
  • Social and networking time
  • Specially curated recreation experiences throughout the weekend
  • Welcome bag with iconic Design Camp shirt
  • Refreshments during breaks throughout weekend (meal plans available separately)
