Do whatever it takes to survive in the cutthroat design world


A special evening event featuring Aaron Draplin — founder of Portland's Draplin Design Company, co-creator of Field Notes. The legendary Aaron Draplin will be bringing his ‘Tall Tales from a Large Man' presentation to the UK for the first time. Using scientific proof and state-of-the-art multimedia techniques, Aaron James Draplin of the Draplin Design Co. delivers a suckerpunch of a talk that aims to provide bonafide proof of work, the highs and lows of a ferociously independent existence and a couple tall tales from his so-called career in the cutthroat world of contemporary graphic design. Just a regular American guy with a trajectory a little dirtier than yours, his talk is open to all oncomers brave enough to show up. If you are a youngster, you may find yourself inspired to attack your design future in a different way. If you are established, you may just leave feeling grateful you don't have anything to do with him. Hard to say. Oh yeah, there's door prizes for those he deems "Real Good™" and he'll will reward them on the spot, just because. One night only, London!
