With seminars on design and networking events galore, Design Camp is THE place for beginners and design veterans to mingle. Kathryn M. Ireland, Nathan Turner, and Timothy Corrigan are just a few of the counselors that will lead courses on creating global design, navigating social media and building a personal brand.

We’re giving three lucky Design Happens readers a chance to win a free ticket* to the Orange County Design Camp on October 9-11. To enter for a chance to win, leave a comment below.

Update: Congratulations to this month’s random winner, Christina Z. Check back next month for another great giveaway.

Father’s Day is around the corner — have you found the perfect gift yet? If your dad is more into tablets, apps and surround sound than golfing and fishing, this Freebie Friday giveaway might be the perfect present. One lucky winner will take home this high-tech toaster from Magimix.

Freebie Fridays - Magimix Vision Toaster

The Magimix Vision Toaster is the only model with a viewing window to let you watch the toasting process in action. Quartz heating elements produce crisp, uniformly brown toast, and the model comes in three glossy colors: black, red and almond cream.

This is sure to be a showpiece in your dad’s high-tech kitchen. Already got Dad’s Day covered? It would be an equally cool gift for a new college grad’s first apartment, or a gift to yourself for being savvy enough to check out Design Happens’ monthly giveaway. The choice is yours!

To win a Vision Toaster in your choice of color, answer this month’s question in the comments below: What’s the best Father’s Day gift you’ve ever given (or received)?

Update 10/15/12:  Congratulations to this month’s winner, Donna, who says she likes to make her Halloween decorations “as scary as skeletons, but my 4-year-old twins have always been around those at Halloween time so they don’t see them as scary.” Congratulations, Donna! Check back next month for another great freebie.

There are two types of Halloween folk: The ones who deck their yard out in fake blood, life-sized zombies and motion-activated vampires and the ones who stick to jolly pumpkins and mildly creepy ghosts.

Since I can’t watch a horror movie without developing a new irrational fear, you can probably guess which camp I fall into. But whether you go for the blood and guts or would rather keep it PG, you’ll love this month’s giveaway: a collection of outdoor Halloween decorations from Grandin Road.

Halloween Reversible Pumpkin - Grandin Road
First on the giveaway list: This creepy animated pumpkin. Sure, it looks innocent enough, but flip on the switch and it turns “evil” — complete with a diabolical laugh — when unsuspecting folks walk by.
