WOW! Talk about a badass presentation. Aaron Draplin is not only a design rock star but a pretty damn good speaker. He spoke at our local art councl to a packed house (of around 150 people). Never in my wildest dreams did I think that one of my favorite graphic designers would stop/let alone speak in my tiny hometown of Rapid City, South Dakota. His speach was inspiring and eye opening. Through the blairing Futura bold keynote and bazillion cuss words, I was able to take away some much needed creative fuel. I'm not going to bore with everything that I love about Aaron Draplin because you can do that here. What I am going to leave you with is my favorite quote of the day  ---

"Saul Bass the shit out of it." - Aaron Draplin
