"Tall Tales From A Large Man" with the Draplin Design Co.
Thursday, May 24, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
Using scientific proof and state-of-the-art multimedia techniques, Aaron James Draplin of the Draplin Design Co. delivers a suckerpunch of a talk that aims to provide bonafide proof of work, the highs and lows of a ferociously independent existence and a couple tall tales from his so-called career in the cutthroat world of contemporary graphic design. Just a regular guy with a trajectory a little dirtier than yours, his talk is open to all oncomers brave enough to show up. If you are a youngster, you may find yourself inspired to attack your design future in a different way. If you are established, you may just leave feeling grateful you don't have anything to do with him. Hard to say. One night only, Louisville!

When & Where
The LGDA was formed in 1988 in order to enhance the quality of design in our home community of Louisville, Kentucky. On a larger scale the group strives to educate the general public and business community about design and its effect on our daily lives. We are an entirely volunteer-based non-profit organization that relies on the passion of its members.
