SJÖLUNDEN APPAREL 

One of my most adventurous occupations has been working at a Swedish language immersion camp, Sjölunden, at the Concordia Language Villages. I have spent two summers as a counselor, language group instructor, life guard, sailing instructor, and unofficial resident designer; crafting various signs, staff apparel, and t-shirts for camp events. During my second year on staff I had the opportunity to collaborate with the language villages' marketing department to design apparel for Sjölunden's village shop. I relied on my experiences as a staff member, numerous years as a camper at Sjölunden, and communication with current staff and villagers to create these custom graphics celebrating a few core elements of the Swedish village - through the target language.
