Here's a really great idea for recent design grads looking for adventure! A design camp hosted by Chicago's Firebelly Design.
Camp Firebelly offers the next crop of socially-minded designers the chance to use their talent and creativity to make a difference, experiencing what professional life is like Firebelly-style. For 10 days, 10 campers live and work with us to craft a strategic design solution for a non-profit client, from initial research to final implementation.
Nick Adam writes, "Camp is a time where Firebelly stops all client work and closes the studio for 2 weeks. We bring 10 young designers into the studio and connect them with several nonprofits that are in great need of proper design. We house, feed, direct, and teach the designers to solve all the problems, and develop tangible artifacts within ten days. This is Firebelly's 4th year of camp, we are very excited for our next group of campers."
