"Tall Tales From a Large Man", Lecture by Aaron Draplin Visiting Artist in Graphic Design


Located in the mighty Pacific Northwest, the Draplin Design Co. proudly rolls up its sleeves on a number of projects related to the Print, Identity and Illustration categories. We make stuff for Coal Headwear, Union Binding Co., Richmond Fontaine, Esquire, Nike, Wired, Dinosaur Jr, Timberline, Chunklet, Eaux Claires, Poler, Incase, Giro, Cobra Dogs, Jill Soloway, Sasquatch Music Festival, Rhett Miller, Old 97s, Nixon Watches, Patagonia, Target, Megafaun, Danava, Ford Motor Company, Woolrich and even the Obama Administration, if you can believe that. We’ve traveled the world telling our story, with 275 speaking fiascos under our belt and counting! We co-created Field Notes with our older brother Jim Coudal, and our memo books are sold in over 2,000 stores worldwide, with limited-edition special editions shipped quarterly to a booming subscriber list. Our first book titled “Pretty Much Everything” came out on May 17, 2016 on Abrams Books, which incredibly, is already in its third printing. We pride ourselves on a high level of craftsmanship and quality that keeps us up late into the wet Portland night.
