"The Hive is a tour-de-force of psychedelic storytelling, an astonishing piece of graphic literature that combines strange characters, even stranger situations and locales, and multi-leveled narratives in a way you have never seen before on the page. Burns' work is utterly unique, and he has no fear about experimenting and trying to engage the reader in new ways. Perhaps his greatest gift is finding a way to make you find empathy for people and things that you would normally find off-putting or disgusting. Burns is one of the few talents who stands above the medium, and deservedly so. Easily one of the finest works you'll see this year." -Comics Waiting Room
“Chris Ware’s Building Stories is the rarest kind of brilliance; it is simultaneously heartbreaking, hilarious, shockingly intimate and deeply insightful. There isn’t a graphic artist alive or dead who has used the form this wonderfully to convey the passage of time, loneliness, longing, frustration or bliss. It is the reader’s choice where and how to begin this monumental work-the only regret you will have in starting it is knowing that it will end.” -J.J. Abrams

Design Camp has been an annual event since 1980 & usually appears in late September/early October at a lodge in northern Minnesota. Design Camp sets the standard for regional design conferences. Its atypical three-day structure mixes indoor and outdoor activities with both educational and social events.
Featured keynote speakers set the tone for camp, and small-group workshops and creative sessions follow these presentations. Attendees (referred to as "campers") stay in lakefront cabins and condos, then meet in the main lodge for events and meals. For more information click here to visit the main AIGA MINNESOTA DESIGN CAMP 2012 Website, DESIGN CAMP FACEBOOK Event Page and the Official DESIGN CAMP FACEBOOK Page.
This year’s line-up of all star speakers include:
