Waldemar Guest Ranch

Somewhere between Austin and Ciudad Acuña, Mexico lies the Waldemar Guest Ranch, the site of Design Ranch 2007. Boasting 7 acres short of 700, you could say it’s as big as hell and half of Texas.

Established in 1927, this spread is now the site of one of the oldest continuously operated girls’ camps in the nation and surely one of the most beautiful. Deep in the rugged Texas Hill Country, its air-conditioned cabins built of stone, cedar and saltillo tile overlook the banks of the Guadalupe River. The handmade furniture and front porches of each cabin herald the very spirit of the wild frontier.

Waldemar offers a wide variety of rooms and cabins along with an oversized dining hall that features family-style meals by a gourmet staff. Guests can go swimming, play tennis or take to the trails on foot or by horse.

Carpool. Its good for you.

We are at about 75% capacity and people are starting to ask about the best way to get to the ranch. In our opinion, after the 2.5 hr drive (from Austin) to the ranch, the last thing you will need will be a car, so carpooling is the best solution.

If you are looking for a ride or someone to share the cost of a ride to the ranch, post it here.

We have successfully created a trifecta of sorts

Poster? Its done.

What we have been allowed to do is created a poster that is a full press sheet size print on a beautiful Neenah sheet (80# cover), designed by Craig Crutchfield and printed at Williamson Printing. Its absolutely amazing. All attendees, AIGA presidents, members, friends, sponsors and myself will get one.

We will also be creating and shipping a second run of them folded to a targetted list of people around the country. Let us know if you need to be on the list.
