The Design Masterclass tuition is all-inclusive of meals and lodging. Prices vary by class. Miami and New York tuition starts at $3,600 US for a double occupancy room. London tuition is £899 per app. Scholarships are available. APPLY for details.

The Design Masterclass is available as a team retreat at sites in Northern Virginia and the Santa Cruz Mountains, or at your site. A two-day format is available in addition to the four-day class. Call for more info at 877-66-small, ext. 4.

The First Day: a new way to app is a four-hour experiment in app design. You will be one of three teams to bring an app, or you can be a Backseat Driver. Backseat Drivers shadow one of the three teams, but they build an app that is as different as possible from the teams who actually own the app, while still hitting the same design marks. It’s a crazy, dizzying, super-accelerated way to break your design habits and build better ones!


Admission to The Design Masterclass is by interview only. Complete the APPLICATION, or use the button below to request a chat with our staff. We look forward to talking with you!

NOVEMBER 1, 2018: The First DAy

The Design Masterclass, but even faster. A day that moves too fast to do anything the way you used to. Three teams work on their apps, but… the rules are changed, and there’s a Backseat Driver who is also working on the same app as you. It’s nuts. And it works.

APRIL 12-15, 2018: TULUM, MEXICO

The Design Masterclass in Tulum, Mexico will be held by a sandy Caribbean beach, minutes from the Mayan pyramids that mark this 13th Century port city known for trading copper, obsidian & feathers. One of the city's three pyramids, The Temple of The Frescoes, tracks the movements of the sun.

We plan to enjoy the sunrise here at this place, once known as The City of Dawn for its face turned toward the sunrise over the Caribbean Sea.

NOVEMBER, 2019: THE HAMPTONS, NY

From The Design Masterclass in the Hamptons, you can walk down the beach, cross a small creek, and reach the historic Village of Sag Harbor. Past classes have visited the local winery, toured the old graveyard at dusk, and visited  Schiavoni's Grocery, featured in Steinbeck's novel "The Winter of Our Discontent." The owners are friends & family.

MODEL MASTERCLASS

FEB 4-5, 2016: Birmingham, Alabama

Offered in partnership with Scott Howard Consulting.

The Design Masterclass in Birmingham was a special two-day Design Lingo class, held at the offices of kinetic on a cobblestone street near Railroad Park. The class site is made partially from old train boxcars, and is in a colorful revitalized historic district convenient to the grand Tutwiler Hotel, where we will be staying for the class.
