Tall Tales from a Large Man
Tuesday, 29 November 2011 from 19:00 to 22:00 (GMT)
London, United Kingdom
For one night only in London, a special evening event featuring Aaron Draplin – founder of Portland’s Draplin Design Company and co-creator of Field Notes.
Draplin will be bringing his hilarious ‘Tall Tales from a Large Man’ presentation to the UK for the first time.
Using scientific proof and state-of-the-art multimedia techniques, Aaron James Draplin of the Draplin Design Co. delivers a suckerpunch of a talk that aims to provide bonafide proof of work, the highs and lows of a ferociously independent existence and a couple tall tales from his so-called career in the cutthroat world of contemporary graphic design.
Just a regular American guy with a trajectory a little dirtier than yours, his talk is open to all oncomers brave enough to show up. If you are a youngster, you may find yourself inspired to attack your design future in a different way. If you are established, you may just leave feeling
grateful you don't have anything to do with him. Hard to say. Oh yeah, there's door prizes for those he deems "Real Good™" and he'll will reward them on the spot, just because. One night only, London!

Tall Tales from a Large Man is currently touring America - heres what the AIGA Jacksonville said after his visit:
"Prior to the event, I knew Aaron was an incredible design talent and sidesplitting copywriter, but I had no idea the level of entertainment and education that was about to unfold. It was such a privilege to have him here for many reasons. Aaron is a premiere performer and currently one of the most highly sought-after speakers—and with good reason. His acclaimed presentation, “Tall Tales from a Large Man” is brilliant and a must-see. Many claimed it was the best speaker event they had been to, and I have to wholeheartedly agree."
