A Night with Aaron James Draplin from the Draplin Design Company.

Esquire. Ford Motors. Burton Snowboards. The Obama Administration. While all of these brands are vastly different, they share at least one thing in com­mon: a teeny, little bit of Aaron James Draplin. Draplin is one of the new school of influential graphic designers who combines the power of design, social media, entrepreneurship, and DIY aesthetic to create a successful business and way of life.

Check out Aaron’s amusing Ted Talk from TEDxPortland in 2014 (here).

At the Mill Talks event hear Aaron’s harrowing account of making his first book. From the contracts to the scheming, from the pagination to the design, from the tears to the nightmares… Aaron will share what it’s like to cram his whole career into 256 pages. Learn about file management tips, layout shortcuts and other organizational tips & tricks that can be applied to the smallest of projects or that once-in-a-lifetime book project he still can’t believe he pulled off. He will show examples of both from the making of Pretty Much Everything. Print’s not dead! Let this talk be proof.  Full DDC merch table will be there too.

Cost: $20 (+ $2.09 EventBrite fee), $30 at the door
Date & Time: Tue, April 4, 2017 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM EDT
Location: Theatre N at Nemours, 1007 North Orange Street, Wilmington, DE 19801
