Designer Vaca 2014

I am so excited. Designer Vaca 2014 has been sold out for months now but I got an email last week that there had been 2 last minute cancellations; I was lucky enough to swipe up one of those seats - only took 15 minutes for those hot spots to be gone, yowza!! I am ecstatic to go. I have heaps of butterflies in my stomach due to excitement and nerves. I'm so pumped to meet so many gals I've admired from the Internet and pick their brain about design, business, and strategy as I embark on this creative journey. Plus, the whole event takes place at the Palm Springs Ace Hotel which has been on my radar for awhile now. It's going to be epic I can feel it in my bones!

DESIGNER VACA 2014 | VISION

"We are gathering together female graphic and web designers from all over the country to dream, relax, collaborate, share experiences, and learn from each other. This intimate environment has a relaxed anti-conference feel creating space for amazing connections and beautiful relationships to take place. We are all in this together! So let's actually be together!"
