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! 

In 2012, industry-leading graphic & web designers Alyssa Yuhas & Promise Tangeman founded Designer Vaca to fulfill their desire to step away from their computers, learn, share experiences & recharge alongside influential women. With more than 20 combined years of industry experience and a client list filled with some of the web’s biggest brands and influencers, Alyssa & Promise curate Designer Vaca as a must-not-miss event year after year.


DESIGNER VACA IS FOR YOU IF ...

  • You are looking to connect with a community of other female designers
  • You want practical and applicable resources and tips for your freelance design business
  • You need some serious creative inspiration if you are a freelancer or in-house designer 
  • You need a VACATION away from your business that fills you up with dreams, ideas and take-aways
