Justin Ahrens (Rule29 and Wheels4Water), Aaron Draplin (The DDC), Dallas Franklin (Neenah), Bill Moran (Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum), Brian Singer (Someguy), and Christine Taylor (Hallmark and POPMinded) discuss the first day of the 2017 AIGA Design Conference in Minneapolis.
In addition to the three podcast recaps from the AIGA National Conference I will be putting up this week, I also wrote a few blog posts documenting the trip for Neenah Paper again this year if you want to also see recaps in written and photo form:
- Craft Matters at the AIGA National Design Conference
- A UNIQUE Market and a Studio on Fire at the AIGA Design Conference
- Lotería and a Minneapolis mural signify the closing of another great AIGA Design Conference
What a great event, and thanks again for listening! Enjoy.
This was the final day of the exhibit hall, and I made the most of it by spending a few minutes with Aaron Draplin while he set up his pop-up shop. I then headed over to the booth of this year’s social cause – Wheels4Water. Before I was able to speak to Justin Ahrens, AIGA Medalist David Carson walked by, and we went from there. I wrapped up the recap back at the Neenah Paper booth where I speak with Doug Grever about paper and packaging.
And the coloring book I discuss briefly with Karen? A page illustrated by Darcy Hinrichs (shown above), includes me as a spaceman! I didn’t realize being in a conference bag coloring book was on my bucket list until I saw it. So cool.
HOW Design Live in Boston may be over, but we’re only half way through our recaps here at 36 Point.
Once again, big thanks to Neenah Paper for letting me record from their booth again.
Last week, the Omaha design community witnessed a double-header of an event, featuring Aaron Draplin. Starting with a luncheon hosted by the great people at the American Advertising Federation – Omaha, and an evening talk hosted by AIGA Nebraska.
In between this busy day was the recording of a podcast with AIGA Nebraska board members Craig Hughes and Nicholas Burroughs (who also now works with me at Eleven19), Nick Evans of To The Moon Studios, and Aaron Draplin. By the time we’re done, even Steve Gordon swings through for a segment.
If you want a quick recap, we speak about Don Rickles, Draplin’s thoughts on the state of signage in America, Field Notes, Merch, The DDC, and more.
