Big Man in Town

In an F-bomb-heavy video interview, aptly titled "Why America is Fucked," outspoken, feverishly passionate independent designer Aaron Draplin describes the state of American design in no uncertain terms: overpriced, scheming, and disrespectful.

On Thursday, February 9, Portland-based Draplin brings his fiery, unwavering opinions to ASU’s Tempe campus for his talk Tall Tales from a Large Man. Expect to hear about his award-winning time spent working for Snowboarder Magazine, stepping out on his own, and a heaping dose of salty language.
