You are invited to the Camper Workshop 2013
At Camper we are free thinkers. We think about shoes at all hours of the day – we even create them when we’re sleeping, eating, or daydreaming… We have a theory that inspiration for our designs hits us when we least expect it, although normally it catches us when we’re at work. This is why, every year, we invite a selection of young designers to stay for ten days at Son Fortesa – our ideas factory located in Alaró (Majorca) – to work together in the Camper Workshop.

The title of this new edition is in line with the times: “Inconformista” (Nonconformist). The chosen designers will develop different prototypes guided by this theme – the same spirit that has accompanied Camper since their origins when they created Chameleón in 1975, a shoe that was created in the countryside for city people and revolutionised the market. Nonconformists transform something they don’t like into something new, they move, they seek solutions.
The participants are young talented individuals from all over the world, chosen through a comprehensive selection process by Adriana Rodríguez, Director of the Camper Workshop, and her team. Guests are chosen both for their work and their personality, given that the group dynamic is very important for achieving objectives.

Some participants from previous years now currently work as designers within the Camper design team. Another success that has come from the Camper Workshop is the creative network that has been built up over the years. They all stay in touch and many of them also work together on different projects as freelancers.
