To the nearly 100 of you that attended the sold-out Draplin event – thanks. Really hope he dropped some knowledge that landed square on all of your faces. For those that missed the talk, that’s a bit of a bummer. But as a quick re-cap, Draplin talked a lot about making shit happen for yourself. He talked about doing good work for good people. He talked about saying ‘yes’ a little more than saying ‘no’. One highlight included answering a question about ‘showing bad work.’ The answer: “Don’t”. What a guy. I packed him up and sent him off on his way the following Saturday with a hug and a promise that we’d see him again. Follow his escapades on his site. Thanks to all who helped out, particularly the kind hearted and talented folks at Northern Army.
And we’re putting on another event. Well, co-sponsoring one. On May 16 at Hub Ottawa (yep, same spot as the Draplin talk) Apartment 613 and the Ottawa Creative Collective are presenting a panel discussion about graphic design in our government town. The talk will feature a brief intro by yours truly – mainly because I love hearing the sound of my own voice – and then we’ll hear from Sara Roncarelli from Fifty, Ian Rapsey from the Greater Good, and Ryan Anderson from Northern Army. The panel will be moderated by Mr. Ryan Saxby Hill from Apt613.
