Well-Designed curates and facilitates meaningful wellness and learning experiences. These design-industry-supported events, workshops and retreats help develop and nurture an increasingly healthy, happy and harmonious community.
Our intention is to be a catalyst for transformation in the culture of design. Our vision is an industry re-imagined: where creative brilliance coexists with wellness and authentic connection fuels a spirit of support, compassion and unity.
Designer life can be stressful. Living in a world of difficult deadlines, tough clients, challenging work environments, and long hours can overshadow the enjoyable and fulfilling aspects of our profession.
Well-Designed curates events that bring together like-minded members of the design community who seek balance in mind, body, and spirit. Our industry is brimming with glamorous cocktail parties, fancy dinners, and numerous social events—but few that aim to connect through wellness.
It was our own journey of wellness that led us here. It has guided DeAndre to his true vocation in coaching and transformation practices, and has helped me become a better designer, business owner, boss, partner, friend, and human being. It is my desire to share my experiences with fellow designers. It is our shared dream to build up our community and empower participants to be catalysts of change within their own lives, careers and our industry as a whole.
