Team swag gets to turn imagination into reality by creating awesome things for participants and volunteers. We coordinate the contest for the Sticker design that all our participants receive and we create the Volunteer appreciation gifts (we are the proud contributors of the 2016 Carabiner Cup).

What we do

The Swag team starts early and designs (and prints) those fancy fabric wristbands that tell us you're at home on Fraya. After that, we choose and create a thoughtful custom gift for all the volunteers that make Freezer Burn happen. Our Swag team is also the team that gathers the community design submissions and prints the annual event sticker!

Team Dynamics

Team Swag is a little team of 2 or 3 creators depending on the year, and we operate pretty independently from the other teams.

Number of Volunteers

Minimum 2, Open to collaboration!

Shift Length

Our creations need to be in hand by the time Freezer Burn happens. So we get down to work 4 months before the event and put in whatever time is needed to make our vision a reality.
