Tall Tales from a Large Man

Aaron Draplin

About this video


Using scientific proof and state-of-the-art multimedia, Aaron delivers a sucker-punch talk that provides bona fi de proof of the highs and lows of a ferociously independent existence and a few tall tales from his so-called career in the cutthroat world of graphic design. Just a regular guy with a trajectory a little dirtier than yours, Aaron will speak to all those 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. Be there!
