On the official 99U website Dave Benton is publishing an interview with Aaron Draplin – Designer and production powerhouse:
“The Portland-based designer has his hands in a wide range of projects—like creating top notch logos for clients, making merch for his favorite bands, or getting designers fired up at his 40-plus speaking dates per year. And if client work for folks like Nike, Burton, and President Obama weren’t enough, Draplin has a healthy portfolio of self-commissioned work and businesses— like his brand of notebooks (Field Notes) and the Draplin Design Company (or DDC)—that generate just as much revenue as the logos he is known for.”
It’s really interesting article that’s why we are sharing it with you. You can read the full interview here.
“So I went to design school as I felt that you needed to have a degree to even get hired, which of course is total bullshit.”
