Academic Center AuditoriumFree and Open The Public but RSVP to hgibson@ringling.edu, seats will go fast.

Aaron Draplin is the founder, creative director, designer, account manager, check casher, and janitor of Draplin Design Co. This self-described man mountain will bring his traveling road show of denim-clad graphic awesomeness to Ringling College of Art + Design on April 17, 2017.

Hunkered down in the mighty Pacific Northwest, the Draplin Design Co. proudly rolls up its sleeves for Coal Headwear, Union Binding Co., Richmond Fontaine, Esquire, Nike, Wired, Dinosaur Jr, Timberline, Chunklet, Eaux Claires, Poler, Incase, Giro, Cobra Dogs, Jill Soloway, Sasquatch! Music Festival, Rhett Miller, Old 97s, Nixon Watches, Patagonia, Target, Megafaun, Danava, Ford Motor Company, Woolrich, and even the Obama Administration, if you can believe that. 

As if that wasn’t enough for a normal human being, Mr. Draplin is also the co-creator Field Notes with Jim Coudal. Their proud offering of American-made memo books are sold in over 1,000 stores nationwide, with limited-edition special editions shipped quarterly to a booming subscriber list

Mr. Draplin will conduct a workshop on Making a Logo the DDC way, with the Graphic Design and Advertising students in the afternoon. Then, in the evening, completely unfazed by this already significant accomplishment he will present “Pretty Much Everything: The Whole Story Behind Our Book” at 7pm in the Auditorium of the Larry R. Thompson Academic Center.

There will be plenty of merchandise for sale after the show so plan accordingly.
