The Meaning of Safe Camp
Safe Camp is my independent consultancy for social media strategy.
The name and symbol Ⴟ derive from a few sources.
The symbol Ⴟ was used as part of hobo code. While the definition of both "safe" and "camping" varied from person to person, the symbol became a shorthand to mean that it was safe for hobos to stay in that area.
The symbol has since been adopted by brands like Roark Revival and music groups like Circa Survive to express their own missions and creativity.
Finding a safe space
Part of why I adopted the symbol is due to my own life experiences. I didn’t grow up in a safe space, but tried to find and foster one in personal and professional settings.
Growing up in a toxic situation meant I was forced to build up survival skills and grow up faster than normal. I wanted to find a safe space by bettering myself - learning and using my intrinsic drive. This led me to take on outside responsibility and advance quickly in my career.
Thus, The 'Safe Camp' is my approach to consultation: a safe space in which to remove guards, preconceived notions and judgment. In addition to my products and services, the Camp Notes are meant to help guide the way.
By working through the social media categories, together we can:
Figure out the nuts and bolts of social media
Find answers, reduce stress, and provide breathing room
Create our own shorthand or field guide through strategy, process, and templates
Build a well-oiled machine - both on paper and in-practice.
