What if every graphic designer, builder, craftsman, creator donated 4-5 hours of FREE time on a Friday to help the greater good? Aaron Draplin is onto something and he is changing the world, one logo, one friend at a time…
Born from the loins of the proud Midwest, Aaron grew up on a steady stream of Legos, StarWars, family trips, drawing, skateboarding and snowboarding. After making a name for himself as art director for Snowboarder magazine and Portland design firm Cinco, Aaron stepped out on his own in 2004 to start The Draplin Design Company. Since then, he has rolled up his sleeves for brands ranging from Burton Snowboards to President Obama. Aaron proudly calls Portland home.
