"Our company gives campers access to joy, self-confidence, and independence".

The company started in 2015 after a trip to Vietnam, where Carter and husband and co-founder, Harry Brigham, had the chance to paddle around bamboo basket boats. They were so enthusiastic about a new way of moving on the water that they found a maker to craft a boat than ship it to the Port of Baltimore.

The CORCL won an Honourable Mention in the international Red Dot Design competition and the GOOD DESIGN award in 2018 and has been awarded multiple patents. Two seasons ago, CORCL Boats came out with the WGWAG, a redesign of a product from the ’80s.  Stevenson Graphic Design students worked on a project for Corcl before; they developed Corcl Girl Scout patches and Corcl mat design a few years ago.

The Mill (CM 402) had the opportunity to visit Sagamore Creative. The class was given a tour of City Garage, a facility where companies and designers of different fields works under one roof. After the tour, the Sagamore Creative team spoke to the Mill about their shared client, Baltimore Greenway Trails Coalition. The students designed printed and web deliverables while Sagamore Creative is currently in the process of rebranding. They walked the students through their problem solving methods, a “blueprint” that listed out what they and the client would need to do in order to complete any project and include the client in the process.

At Sagamore Creative, their motto is "thick skin and candor," something that all designers need to learn and follow as they go out into the “real world.” Designers need to learn not to take criticism personally and to be open to conversation about design aspects between themselves and the client.

Fashion Photographer and ASMP (American Society for Media Photographers) Baltimore Chapter vice president Sean Scheidt teaches a workshop to Advanced Studio Photography (PHOTO 341) students. ​ Sean presented his work and talked to class about business of photography, working with clients, and building a supportive creative crew for fashion photo shoots. Students learned how to work with a model, and how to create interesting lighting scenarios for strong visual impact.
