AAF Tri-Cities extends a big bearhug welcome to graphic design hotshot Aaron Draplin for a Tri-Cities Takeover! Join us on Friday, October 7th at the historic and funky Uptown Theater in Richland for a day of design, logo mastery, workshoppin’ fun, and stories from one of our industry’s coolest characters.
The day will be split into two awesome events:
- Logo Workshop, from 1:00–5:00pm, with Aaron conducting a hands-on logo design crash course for designers of all experience levels. Each workshop attendee will get a sweet DDC swag pack.
- Social Meet & Greet with Aaron Draplin from 6:30-7:00pm
- Convo with the Pro, from 7:00–8:00pm, Aaron will give a fun talk, sharing tales from his career spanning the last two decades, with a Q&A to follow. Admission for the Talk event includes two drink tickets to use on beer, wine or a selection of non-alcoholic beverages.
Aaron will have a booth setup in the lobby stocked full of DDC merch for sale. This is an experience you won’t want to miss! With the two separate events, there will be something for everyone – designers and advertising pros alike!
