America Is F*cked.......(Graphically at least) from Jess Gibson on Vimeo.
In April 2000, much to the chagrin of his proud “Midwestern Roots,” Aaron Draplin accepted the ill-fated art director position with SNOWBOARDER magazine. He moved it all down to Shithole, Southern California-alongside some hot, caustic beach-and wrangled some 23 issues of the mag. He won “Art Director of the Year” for Primedia 2000, beating out such titles as Gun Dog, Cat Fancy and Teen. No other awards were bestowed in this period, and like he gives a rat’s ass.
Thankfully, in April 2002, the Cinco Design Office of Portland, Oregon called up and offered a Senior Designer gig which he instantly accepted. He moved it all North to the land of rain and gloom and rolled up the sleeves to work on the Gravis, Helly Hansen and Nixon accounts.
The Draplin Design Co. finally stepped out on its own four hairy feet in the fall of 2004.Now, Aaron Draplin is proud to work on what he likes when he likes as a true to life designer. If you don't believe me, then check out his site.
