May 24 – June 2, 2019
The ten-day intensive will be broken into two tracks: Development and Creative. In each track, students will learn distinct skills and collaborate with the other track throughout the program. To help students get as much out of the ten-day camp as possible, students can expect a packed schedule from morning until bed time. Participants will start each day with group exercise, break up into tracks for classes and lectures throughout the day, take turns cooking meals for each other and taking care of other collective chores.
In the tech track, students will choose an area of focus: data science or front-end web development.
In the creative track, students will learn the basics of typography, art direction, branding, UX, and UI. Students will learn to execute concepts based on visual research, typographic training, formal exercises, and layout. Special emphasis will be placed on design digital media, and working with developers.
Registration will open for this class on February 1
