Draplin Design Co.: Pretty Much Everything
Just an incredible collection of work. Aaron Draplin just creates. Always making, always creating something tangible. This book shows the huge body of work he has accumulated over the past few decades. What I admire most about Draplin is that fear doesn’t hold him back. He gets the art our there and moves to the next. Something to strive for in the upcoming year.
Pretty Much Everything is a mid-career survey of work, case studies, inspiration, road stories, lists, maps, how-tos, and advice. It includes examples of his work—posters, record covers, logos—and presents the process behind his design with projects like Field Notes and the “Things We Love” State Posters. Draplin also offers valuable advice and hilarious commentary that illustrates how much more goes into design than just what appears on the page. With Draplin’s humor and pointed observations on the contemporary design scene, Draplin Design Co. is the complete package for the new generation of designers.
