Design Camp for Grown Ups!


PUSH was founded in 2007 by Karl Heine, principal of creativeplacement and kHyal™, President + Creative Director of fiZz. The husband and wife team partner with masterful individuals and companies to produce career-critical communication design events and workshops.

PUSH is an ongoing series of handcrafted workshops, salons and events developed to expand the learning opportunities of creative professionals at every stage in their careers. From tips on typography and the lost art of letterpress — to rapidly evolving emerging interactive technologies. From creating a portfolio for success — to techniques that get your resume noticed. From how to present your best self in an interview — to mapping out a career shift — and more. PUSH provides the tools and training to keep you pushing toward your goals.

In 2011, PUSH went mobile with Design Camp on Block Island. Campers reveled in nature with like-minded creative professionals for three days of hedonistic play and design learning.

Our intense three days of design thinking and workshops in a breathtaking world of natural beauty was a smash hit. On the menu was a welcome dinner by a master chef, typography in nature, plein air painting, found object sculpture workshop, natural clay spa on the beach and more!
