Here's our write-up from this week's Picks Page.
If there were such a think as a grunge rock graphic designer it would be Aaron Draplin. A former Bend snowboard bum who cut his teeth laying out pages for the Nickel Ads, Draplin has since turned the ad design world on its creative head with his renegade and often minimalistic takes. Whether designing ads for corporate clients or working up a campaign for a friend, Draplin doesn’t think outside the box, he crushes it under his heel. Hear him riff on advertising, design that doesn’t suck and why he likes to work in his underwear. St.Charles $25/members $45/non-members. Registration adfedco.org or 541-385-1992
