Designer Spotlight: Aaron Draplin

Aaron Draplin, a prolific graphic designer and author, has been a person of interest to me for several years now. Ever since I became intrigued by the world of graphic design, Draplin has served as an inspiration. The Portland-based designer is known for his bold, colorful, retro-looking style, and founded Draplin Design Co. in 2004. He has worked with Nike, Red Wing, Patagonia, Wired, Ford, and many other global brands. To add to his impressive resume, he created the brand Field Notes, a line of simple notebooks, and regularly creates educational design content. Below, I’ve included some photos of his work. Take a look and be captivated by his stunning artwork!
