Aaron James Draplin At Boston University

  • Sleeper Auditorium 871 Commonwealth Ave Boston, MA, 02215 United States (map)

Aaron James Draplin is a prolific multidisciplinary designer based in Portland, Oregon, well known for his logos and graphics. Born and raised in the American Midwest, Draplin’s work is inspired by the aesthetics of rustic Americana, bringing blue collar American imagery, vernacular, and work ethic into twenty-first century design.
Draplin began his career as a designer creating logos for snowboarding companies, and in 2002 joined Cinco Design Office in Portland, Oregon, as Senior Designer. In 2004 he founded Draplin Design Co., and has since worked with clients including Nike, Patagonia, the New York Times, Burton Snowboards, Wired, and the Obama Administration, to name only a few. One of his best-known and mostly widely used creations is the Field Notes notebook, which has become ubiquitous in recent years and serves as a touchstone of timelessness in contemporary design.
