this guy. aaron draplin. one of my heroes, was in town yesterday speaking at the giant conference(thanks ant sanders for the pic and letting us crash the scene) — i closed the shop for a couple hours and took the team downtown to listen to his presentation. aaron, proud owner of the DDC, who i consider an icon in the world of graphic design, his authentic personality, philosophy on life and design is compelling, invigorating, hilarious and authentic. i am very proud to call him a friend and colleague. keep up the good work pal, we love you man.
