Dear Mom, Having a great time at camp. The first night was hard. The second night got a little easier. Threw up in my bunk last night. The food isn’t as good as yours. Tell Dad he’s an animal. I miss you. Send socks. Send boxer shorts. Send money. Love, Aaron.

FINAL DAY OF CAMP: Woke up, had a hearty breakfast with the good people of Studio On Fire and headed over to the big room for some Hush action.

Hush’s presentation was great. Bravo, fellas. I’m just here to tell you: These guys have some serious talent and man, you have already seen their work all over the place. And you’ll be seeing more and more. Incredible. Great guys too. David! Eric! So good to have met you guys. Come to Portland! DDC factory floor “All Access” passes await.

Design Camp came to an end today. Here’s a tiny little Flickr recap of the deal. I can’t believe I didn’t take more photos. Too busy shooting the shit, I guess.
