Nothing should hold you back from building an intelligent future for your organization. At IIT Institute of Design's Design Camp, you’ll learn the ID brand of strategic thinking—directly from ID faculty. Get hands-on experience that will stay with you and see results materialize after just four days.

Design Camp is a four-day introductory immersion into the design process that draws professionals from corporations and not-for-profit institutions from around the world. Discover why design is so important to forward-looking businesses today—and what design-driven innovation can accomplish for your organization.

Over the course of the week participants are introduced to problem framing, user research, analysis, concept generation, prototyping, and design communication, by faculty from the Institute of Design, all in the context of addressing real-world challenges facing local not-for-profit institutions.

Your registration fee will include program materials and meals during the days of the program, as well as evening events, networking, and studio visits for three nights during the program.
