Using scientific proof and state-of-the-art multimedia techniques, Aaron James Draplin of the Draplin Design
Co. delivers a sucker-punch 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 guy with a trajectory a little dirtier than yours, his talk is open
to all on-comers 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, Calgary!
