WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
AT DESIGNER VACA

Relaxing. Sleeping in. Instagram-ing. Pool Time. Dreaming. Collaborating. Sipping Drinks & Eating Tacos. Making Friends. Learning. Business Chats. & More.

 

what it's all about
-

For the past 5 years, we've gathered together with female graphic and web designers from all over the world to dream, relax, collaborate, share experiences, and learn from each other. This intimate environment has allowed for a relaxed anti-conference feel creating space for amazing connections and beautiful relationships to develop. We're all in this together! So we thought, let's actually be together! 

Founded in 2012, Alyssa Yuhas and Promise Tangeman desired to step away from their computers, build community, lay by the pool, and recharge next to ladies all in search of the same. It proved to be a very needed and energizing trip away–and so much more than a vaca! And every year since, they've been blown away by the businesses, collaborations and big ideas that have come out of spending 3 days together in the desert.

WHAT'S NEXT

After much silence (and us working/dreaming/planning behind the scenes), we wanted to let you know that after 5 years of learning, connecting, and relaxing in Palm Springs together, we are taking a PAUSE on our main event this year. BUT–we are excited to be back in the Fall of 2018–and better than ever. In the meantime, we are planning and building some “stay-cations” that will happen throughout the year.

DRUMROLL PLEASE...

The first stay-cation will happen
November, 2017 in Toronto, Canada
