Design Ranch 2011: Come Prepared to Play

Written by in Events

Design Ranch Ain’t for Sissies: Photos by Woody Welch

Design Ranch starts today (April 15) and Neenah is a signature sponsor. Yours truly will be teaming up with the accomplished Austin photographer Woody Welch to bring you some of the gatherings best personalities and moments. Woody is knows Design Ranch and the host property, Camp Waldemar, like none else. You are in for a treat.

Some folks got to Austin early to do a little pre-ranch training. Sean Carnegie of LewisCarnegie, is one of the Design Ranch founding fathers and former AIGA President. Native Texan Jason Brantley, late of Philadelphia advertising fame, has been to all nine Design Ranch gatherings.

Every year his commitment to craft and wallet making diminishes, but his commitment to his social networking only grows. He brings his own supplies: black clothing, black hat, Prada Shades, fat black cigars and a healthy appetite for the local, um, water. These people are serious about fun in Austin and even more so at Design Ranch… so, don’t come to Design Ranch expecting to borrow someone else’s hat, horse or beverage coozie. You are on your own.
