Designer Jessica Yurasek shares her recent Type Camp experience and how it helped to rejuvenate her creativity.
I signed up for Type Camp not quite knowing what to expect, but I knew
one thing for certain: that the past two years at my in-house design
job had burned my creativity to a crisp. There are many things I love
about my work, but I was beginning to feel like I had settled into a
rut. So when I found a link to the Type Camp website,
my heart jumped. Started in 2007 by teacher and typographer Dr. Shelley
Gruendler, Type Camp professed to be a living-learning creative retreat
for designers and typophiles — a seemingly perfect way to escape my
creative slump. It sounded absolutely glorious to travel to an island
off the coast of Vancouver, BC to study typography with four inspiring
teachers and a group of like-minded designers. I couldn’t wait.
