Design Summer Camp

Each summer IIT Institute of Design hosts two sessions of Design Summer Camp, a five-day immersive experience into the design process that draws professionals from corporations and not-for-profit institutions from around the world. Participants learn to incorporate design methods into how they build new business offerings and enhance existing brands.

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 Chicago area not-for-profit institutions.

Participants can register here for one of two sessions, July 15–19 or July 22–26.
