Aaron Draplin at CM Portland

BY Aaron Draplin

Aaron Draplin just wants to make stuff that his dad will understand. Stuff that’s simple, shows a sense of restraint, and looks good on a billboard and on a 1-inch button. He is the founder of Draplin Design Co. (DDC), and Field Notes Brand, a DDC / Coudal Partners collaboration. In this talk for the Walker Art Center's Insights 2012 Lecture Series, Aaron presents the ideas and challenges that get to the heart of why he loves the work he does.
